AUDIO: Galaxy Scotland launch

The start of Global's major UK Radio re-branding scheme has started with the end of Xfm Scotland, and the birth of Galaxy Scotland.

The switch-over period included a slow build-up sequence fading out parts of Xfm and slowly introducing Galaxy programming mixed with a slow-building heartbeat.

The licence, using the frequencies of 105.7 and 106.1 started life as Beat 106 on November 19th 1999 as a new music station playing rock and dance music. Following the merger of Capital Radio and GWR, GCap Media re-launched the station as Xfm on January 4th 2006 forming part of the growing Xfm network. Now, history is repeating with the station rebranding to form part of a growing Galaxy network.

Galaxy is now broadcasting in Birmingham, Manchester, Yorkshire, north-east England, central Scotland and (launching soon) the south coast.
