Celtic Music Radio is the UK’s only licensed broadcast radio station dedicated to promoting Celtic and roots music of all genres.
Celtic Music Radio is based in Glasgow, Scotland and has a mission to be a strong cultural voice for contemporary and traditional Scottish music, arts and culture, pioneering new frontiers in communication and broadcasting by including people that do not have access to mainstream media.
The service is targeted at the Glasgow area’s practising creative artists in a broad range of music and cultural endeavour across a range of genres of music, media and speech.
The service aims to advance education in particular by promoting the performance, learning and appreciation of a broad spectrum of Celtic music and cultural activity; to enhance the understanding of this genre of music and be pro-active in the development of the rich heritage of Celtic music and Scottish culture.
The radio station has broadcast live and recorded events from the Glasgow city based Celtic Connections Festivals in January 2006 and January 2007 as a trial and on a Restricted Service Licence basis. These trial broadcasts provided support from the community of interest and general public to enable a full-time Ofcom licensed service.
From 16 January 2008, Celtic Music Radio has broadcast full-time following the award of an Ofcom Community Radio licence (CR137) with a 24/7 service of music programmes, reviews, previews with arts and cultural discussions on 1530AM across the Glasgow area and online via this website. The service will be enhanced from July 2014 when transmission switched over to 95 MHz FM across Glasgow.
