The Dark Outside

Stuart finds out about The Dark Outside FM, a pop-up radio station broadcasting previously unheard music from a remote part of Scotland.

Stuart finds out about The Dark Outside FM, a pop-up 24-hour broadcast of unheard music in a remote part of Scotland. Now in it's fourth year The Dark Outside asks for donations of music from artists including un-released tracks, demos and remixes to special collaborations specifically for The Dark Outside. The music is broadcast over FM radio in the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park around a giant neon art installation and 19th Century monolith.
