Subcity Radio is an independent, non-profit station based in Glasgow and broadcasting to the world.
We provide a platform to creative individuals to create forward-thinking radio content. Over 200 contributors make up our community, they are editorially independent and follow no set playlist, all content is their own.
The station was founded in 1995 as an alternative to the options on the FM dial in Glasgow, following an American freeform college radio format. The station went online in 2003, and the last FM broadcast was in 2009. Today the station continues to aim for unique content that is free from commercial restraints. We keep our ears to the ground and our heads in the clouds.For opportunities to get involved, for events news, and for station updates, follow us on facebook and twitter.

They are responsible for coordinating events and outreach projects, facilitating studio access and contributor training, running promotional strategies, designing, writing, photographing, videoing, archiving, programming, testing, upgrading, tweaking, breaking, and fixing everything to do with the station.
