You will find us on Edinburgh DAB

And also on Apple Car play

We play all the hits you would expect to hear on the radio but also we make sure we play Scottish artists more often and also give airplay to unsigned independent bands who would struggle to get regular airplay on Radio Forth or Heart. 

Hanley and the Baird got a Number 3 single in the Scottish Chart, Follow the Rainbows also got to No.27 in the official Download chart.  They have had a No.1 country single for 2 weeks but have never got commercial airplay.  This happens often for our local bands.

To advertise, volunteer or send in demos drop us an email with the contact forms.
