Manchester-based LGB&T radio station Gaydio is to broadcast on DAB in Scotland for the first time this summer, via a pop-up DAB channel.
The station will broadcast across Central Scotland (including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Paisley & Stirling) from 14th July to 31st August. The station will broadcast throughout the Pride Glasgow festival, taking place on 19th July and the Commonwealth Games.
Toby Whitehouse, Station Director said “Gaydio is already available online throughout the UK and with almost half of the population now owning a DAB Radio, it’s the perfect time for us to make the station as easily available as we are at other parts of the UK. Gaydio will continue to broadcast on DAB across London & Sussex and FM in Manchester – meaning around 20 million people will be able to access the station through their DAB or FM radios.”
Alastair Smith, Chief Executive of Pride Glasgow expressed his excitement at Gaydio launching in Scotland in time for Pride Glasgow, saying that “It’s great that Gaydio will not only be available in cars and on radios across central Scotland, but it means that there is a unique opportunity for people to be part of it.”
