Radio Clyde goes cruising

Radio Clyde had a temporary new home at the weekend, moving from a studio box to a 42 foot long luxury yacht. The station was helping Glasgow attract over 85,000 people to this year's River Festival. "The Radio Clyde Cruiser", as it was known, was captained by Clyde 2’s Bill Smith.

The yacht featured a live Colin Kelly broadcast on Clyde 1 on Saturday morning and a live Tom Ferry show on Clyde 2 on Saturday afternoon. Chief reporter Lorraine Herbison got a little wetter than expected when she accidently fell into the river whilst trying to board an inflatable!

The River Clyde burst into life as speedboats, jet skis, zapcats and tall ships took to the water to celebrate Glasgow’s fourth annual River Festival., of which Radio Clyde was the official radio partner of. Highlights included Britain’s largest tall ship, the STS Tenacious, the oldest Clydebuilt ship —MV Kyles and the city’s own SV Glenlee — the 100 year old tall ship docked at Glasgow Harbour.

Glasgow Marketing Bureau, Head of Projects, Gordon Ritchie said,

“Radio Clyde’s media partnership was exceptional and their coverage from the luxury yacht — pre, during and post the event kept the west of Scotland informed and entertained and contributed greatly to the record breaking crowds for this year’s Glasgow River Festival. We’re all delighted with the success of this year’s event”.

Radio Clyde's Programme Director, Paul Saunders said,

“We’re really pleased with the on air coverage of this year’s Glasgow River Festival and the feedback from listeners has been amazing. It was a terrific event and the sun even came out over the Fair weekend which is unusual. We’ve got an excellent relationship with the Glasgow Marketing Bureau and Glasgow City Council and this will further strengthen our partnerships with them.”
