Glasgow, we're back!

Exciting times! We're pleased to let you know that you can once again get Gaydio across Glasgow on DAB+ Digital Radio. We began broadcasting in an Ofcom trial - that went way over the 2 year trial period that was intended, while Westminster and Ofcom put the necessary legislation through parliament. Finally in 2022 though, the new digital transmitter has launched (with an extra one to come), and you'll get us wherever you are across Glasgow. Exciting times!

Why am I here? What actually is Gaydio?
Good question! We're the LGBTQ+ Station for the UK - broadcasting in cities across the country (with more in the pipeline). We don't just talk about LGBTQ+ stuff - we talk from an LGBTQ+ perspective. Our music is an upbeat mixture of dance and pop, the sort of stuff you'd find whether dancing in the club or your kitchen but with our own unique twist. We also champion LGBTQ+ artists, highlight stories about and relevant to our community and talk and reflect events that you go to.

WHEN WHEN WHEN is this happening?
It's actually happening now! We're on a new digital radio transmitter covering the city, with another one due shortly. We don't control or own these - they put out loads of stations. There is at least one additional transmitter to turn on in the coming months meaning you'll get us further and more robustly without breaks.

How can I get you? I don't have a DAB+ radio
Many new radios and car stereos have a DAB+ function, so simply switch to that and look for Gaydio, sometimes this might be under a heading saying Glasgow SS  - save us as a favourite when you find Gaydio and we will stay with you if you move around. Some older DAB radios might not be able to pick up DAB+ (DAB plus) though. Remember that our network of transmitters won't be fully up and running until the end of 2022, so if you can't get us yet, try again soon.

If you don't have a radio - don't worry, you can still listen to us on our website (, download our Apple or Google app or simply as your smart speaker to 'play Gaydio'.

Can I get on air?
Sure, if you've something to talk about then let's see how we can do this. We have opportunities (some paid, many voluntary) available - click here to apply. If you're an artist with music too, then you can find details about submitting songs here

Will Gaydio be talking about Glasgow?
Whilst we talk about LGBTQ+ life and everything that goes on across the UK, we'll make sure we focus on hot topics in Glasgow, with specific elements on air purely focussed on Glasgow LGBTQ+ life as well.  We champion LGBTQ+ life all year round, and if there's something of interest in Glasgow be sure we'll be chatting about it on air.

Can I advertise my event/business/ service on air?
Absolutely! From October we will have unique ad-breaks covering our Glasgow transmitters. That means that you can talk to a local audience, or if you want to reach wider, can go on our other transmitters across London, Brighton, Manchester, Birmingham or any of combination of these. You can find out more about advertising here
