Rock party raises over 12k
GMG's Rock Radio has raised over 12 thousand pounds during a special 1st birthday rock gig at The Garage in Glasgow.
Logan, an up and coming Scottish rock band, hit the stage playing in front of over 700 Rock Radio fans with the opening set.
Acoustic sets followed from the Alex Harvey Band, Thunder, and Ricky Warwick and Stumpy from the Almighty as well as classic rock hits from Doogie White and Toby Jepson. All monies raised on the night is going directly towards Nordoff-Robbins Scotland, 96.3 Rock Radio’s nominated charity partner.
Special guest appearances on the night included Frankie Miller whom has great patronage with Nordoff-Robbins having benefited directly from the charity in his recovery after suffering a brain haemorrhage in 1994.
Billy Anderson, managing director for GMG Radio Scotland said, “It was a bold move by GMG Radio to provide Scotland with its first classic rock station but it has been a phenomenal year seeing a completely new station with this genre of music evolve and grow. Tonight has been night of celebration as Rock Radio celebrates its first birthday. What a fantastic end to the first year for a station that quite simply rocks”.
Ciaran O’Toole head of presentation for Rock Radio and organiser of the gig said, “It started as a simple idea to put a gig on, but through the support and hard work of many people it snowballed into one of Glasgow’s great classic rock gigs with an unprecedented line up exclusively for hundreds of lucky Rock fans. After this gig, we will definitely Rock again!”
