Dumbarton-based Lomond Radio goes on DAB in Glasgow

Community station Lomand Radio has joined the DAB digital radio multiplex in Glasgow after streaming online since 2020.

The service, which is based in Dumbarton, promotes local talent and charities, and is staffed by around 50 volunteers.

Director and Chairman, Alan Caldwell commented: “We’re excited to bring the sound of Lomond Radio to the people of Glasgow. The communities we serve in the Lomond area have a special affinity with Glasgow and its people and view Glasgow as their city too.

“It’s where we go for special nights out, to shop and for transport links with the rest of the country.

“We would love the people of Glasgow to have the same affinity with the Lomond area and everything it has to offer, and that’s one of the things we want to promote throughout our broadcasts.”

Director Paul Lucas added: “We’re eager to continue developing the station and provide a platform for local talent, support local community groups and businesses, and spread the word to a wider audience across the Glasgow area while still continuing to broadcast online, on our mobile apps and smart speakers.

“Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) has become a popular choice for radio enthusiasts, providing crystal-clear sound and a broader range of available stations.

“Lomond Radio’s move to Digital DAB signifies a commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the broadcasting industry.”

Lomond Radio marked its move to DAB on Friday 29th March 2024 with a 76-hour radiothon live from its studios.
