Diana is a talented piano player and singer, writes some gorgeous songs, plays live regularly and hosts the Diana Schad Night Nurse programme on Wednesdays at 10.00pm until 12 midnight.
The weekly radio show went live in March 2014 on Pulse 98.4 It is a show for lovers and music lovers, where guests and local to Glasgow and the West of Scotland and not-so-local artists, are invited to chat and play live in session in studio 1 at Pulse 98.4
Diana's show is full of great music: Scottish, indie, folk, Americana, old classics (she is very partial to a bit of Stevie Wonder now and then) to more current artists such as Blue Rose Code or established artists such as Josh Rouse. Basically, whatever listeners are wanting to hear!
The show is recorded as part of the Pulse 98.4 Catch Up listen again service and is available for up to 28 days after original broadcast. You can listen on any device to include desktop PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone etc. The programme is also available on Diana's Mixcloud page.
Diana used to play the piano bar circuit in Glasgow, playing and singing covers, but is happier playing her own songs at various open mics around the city, or indeed a mixture of fabulous covers and her own music at private weddings, which is much more intimate and meaningful to everyone concerned.
Diana hosts monthly Sunny Corner Sessions at her home in Glasgow for musicians and those in the music industry to support each other to network, play their music live to an appreciative group of friends and bring their musical careers forward.
She volunteers at a Glasgow children’s hospice singing and playing piano once a month.
Her music can be heard on Soundcloud, though, in her words: “isn’t finished and finance permitting, they will be re-recorded in time...”.
Diana hosts house concerts in her home, approximately four times a year. And apart from all this music involvement, she is a nurse working in the palliative care field, hence her legitimate radio persona, Night Nurse!
Diana Schad Night Nurse, Wednesdays 10.00pm-12midnight and Catch Up anytime.
