Celtic Music Radio goes digital for event

Glasgow community radio station Celtic Music Radio is available on DAB across much of southern, eastern and central England for the next few weeks – as well as in Ayrshire and South East Wales.

The station is using Now Digital’s ‘Pop Up’ channel on 19 local multiplexes to bring the Celtic Connections music festival to millions of potential listeners from later this week.

Celtic Music Radio started as an RSL station in 2006, covering the world-famous event. It was awarded a full-time community radio licence in 2007 and has just had its licence extended by a further five years to January 2018. It broadcasts on 1530AM in Glasgow.

The Celtic Connections festival starts on Thursday (19th January) and runs until 5th February with its main stage in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

Celtic Music Radio went live on the Pop Up Radio channel this morning (Monday) and will be available on digital until 6th February.

Founder Bob McWilliam said: “This is great opportunity for digital radio users across the country to get a taste of Celtic Connections and Celtic Music Radio local programmes. All they have to do is select Pop Up on their digital radio display and they will get Celtic Music Radio from Glasgow.”

Pop Up Radio is on the following Now Digital multiplexes: Ayrshire, Berkshire & North Hampshire, Bristol, Cambridge, Cornwall, Coventry, Essex, Kent, Leicester, Norwich, Nottingham, Peterborough, Plymouth, South East Devon, South East Wales, Sussex Coast, Swindon, West Wiltshire and Wolverhampton.
