Clyde Built Radio will launch in Glasgow in January.
The new station is the brainchild of Andrew Thomson, founder of Glaswegian label and party outfit Huntleys + Palmers; the label has released music by the likes of Mehmet Aslan, Auntie Flo and DJs Pareja.
Clyde Build Radio will broadcast out of Glasgow's Barras Market, which is pictured above. The station is named after Thomson's 'Clyde Built' compilations, which showcase the Glasgow scene, and is focussed on a need to give Glasgow a local station to compare with others across the UK, such as NTS in London.
On the new project, Thomson says:
"In addition to offering a platform to the lesser known and emerging names, the station will also celebrate the various clubs, record shops and established figures within the scene. We'll also host DJ and production workshops and aim to function as a creative hub and hang out spot. There will be some launch parties and broadcasts happening between now and the new year, launching properly in January."
