I'd missed the top of the hour news at that point so tuning elsewhere for Scottish news would have been pointless.

Tuned into Clyde 1 for the news at 2pm the other day. Found no news but a blatantly networked show from Key 103 instead. Sighed, switched to Spotify and haven't been back.

Ah, yes I am. That may well be it, I'm seeing a lot of reference to problems on Twitter now you mention it. Many thanks, hope it clears up soon.

iPhone internet problems

Hey all,

My phone got a little confused when trying to download tweets from the iPhone app and was unable to do so,...

96.3 makes no sense for Global as a standalone traditional local station or as a classic rock station. Its only possible use is extending an existing brand. They've got Heart and Capital in Scotland...

Northsound 1 is tied into the 'more hit music' sound, and Northsound 2 is stuck with MW and presenters from across Scotland. There is a natural gap for a station to come in steal the audience of both...

Yes, I suspect it's got a very good line-up for one day, but you might hear a very similar line-up on a daily basis. Still though, as you allude to, they know exactly what they're doing.
