Richard Coupland


I’ve been on the air for almost five years now with a weekly show on Zetland FM where we developed the show from the ground up as it were. I’d not done radio beforehand but was thrilled to land the regular spot on a very popular station serving our area with a very strong online presence too.

Broadcast experience and getting the ‘hang’ of recording software made it almost inevitable I’d make independent country shows, The Breeze being now some three years old, having aired overseas and other local radio stations here in the UK.

The Breeze, like all of my shows, centres on the music itself and the pleasure of listening to great country music from mainstream American, Indie and occasionally British. To paraphrase one of my female favourite artists, Lee Ann Womack, I play the music people want to hear. You’ll not find me discussing the merits of chart positions or championing a trend or style of country music nor will you hear excessive chat between tracks, as The Breeze is quite simply, all about the music.

You can hear Richard on Thursday at 2 pm,10 pm and Friday at 6 am
