Glasgow station to switch from AM to FM

Ofcom has awarded three new community radio licences for services in Scotland, including an FM licence to Celtic Music Radio which currently broadcasts on AM.

The two new stations are Sound of Mull Radio on the Isle of Mull and Iona and Camglen Radio in South Lanarkshire.

Sound of Mull Radio will reflect island life, culturally, linguistically and socially, giving a voice to islanders, whilst Camglen Radio will be a local service for Cambuslang, Rutherglen and surrounding areas broadcasting content that reflects the interests, needs, richness and diversity of the communities served.

Two other groups, Paisley FM and Paisley Ark FM were considered but not awarded a licence on this occasion.

Celtic Music Radio will now hand-back the 1530 AM licence. Each new licence if for a five year period and will commence when each station starts broadcasting – within two years from today.

The new awards mean that 257 community radio licences have been awarded. In total, 19 groups applied for a licence in Scotland.
