In Episode 1, we're "going off script with..." Steve Parkinson, Chief Strategic Partnerships and Events Officer at Bauer Media Group and Queen Margaret University alumni, class of 1988.

During Steve's long career in broadcasting, he has managed national British radio stations such as Kiss FM, Magic FM and Absolute Radio.

Steve graduated from what was then known as Queen Margaret College (QMC) in 1988 with a Diploma in Drama (Stage Management) with Distinction.

Join us, as Steve chats candidly about his career highlights and student days, including how he managed to convince Runrig to play a gig in the Corstorphine campus canteen, got Wayne Sleep to open a student union charity fête and talks about the importance of his father’s sound advice to stay calm by ‘keeping the heid’.

"Going Off Script With..." is a podcast series of candid interviews with stars of stage, screen and behind the scenes of the creative industry, hosted by Prof. David Stevenson, Dean of QMU's School of Arts, Social Sciences and Management.

This QMU alumni podcast was created to celebrate 50 years of Drama and Performance teaching at the University in 2022.
