BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra
What is BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra?
BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra is an 8 day pop-up service on our digital dials from 23rd November to 30th November, 2016.
Celebrating the many distinctive and diverse musical genres that can already be heard on BBC Radio Scotland, the pop-up station will broadcast 24 hours a day and offer a new schedule that showcases the best and richness of our homegrown and international talent.
Sharon Mair, Station Editor "This station gives us a brilliant opportunity to share our passion for music and performance, to showcase new talent, support those who work in the music industry in Scotland while recognising how it is seen and respected on the world stage.
You will hear the familiar, from jazz to Americana and country, and classical to traditional and folk, and I would love our audiences to be surprised and to discover new artists and music as they enjoy the station. BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra will culminate on St Andrews night with a specially commissioned programme working with the students from the Royal Scottish Conservatoire."
