The show is produced by MFR in partnership with MG ALBA, and aimed at 15-24 year old’s showcasing the Gaelic Language within a chart show formula. It’s also produced for broadcast on Isles FM, Two Lochs Radio, Cuillin FM, Argyll FM and Nevis Radio.

Davey D and Roya MacLean, presenters of the show collected the award. Davey D said: “We are delighted with this award. The show is very much in its infancy and has only been broadcasting for five months. It is a great achievement for us at MFR and the radio stations that also broadcast the show.”

Danny Gallagher, Managing Director at MFR said: “I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted for the guys on the show, especially Roya who hadn’t presented before this opportunity came up. A special mention must go to MG ALBA, without their partnership it simply would not have happened.”

Donald Campbell, Chief Executive of MG ALBA, said: “This is a great step forward for Gaelic broadcasting and we congratulate the MFR team on this success. We have worked effortlessly together to bring the first ever bilingual Scottish Chart show in English and Gaelic to audiences across the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire.
