Lomond Radio, a popular online radio start-up that was created by a group of friends to offer support
to their local communities during the challenges of the global pandemic, is set to elevate its presence
by progressing into Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) in Glasgow.

Lomond Radio has been capturing the hearts of listeners since their launch in March 2020
broadcasting online via their website, mobile apps and smart speakers. Four years on, this local
community radio station which was originally established to help people through lockdown is set to
launch on Digital DAB across Glasgow.

Run entirely by volunteers and broadcasting from their state-of-the-art studio in Strathleven House,
Dumbarton, the truly local radio station has been entertaining the local area with a jam-packed
schedule of diverse programming from country music to funk and soul, from love songs to rock and
everything in between. The station proudly supports and promotes local bands and artists with shows
such as Talent Spotlight and Fresh Sounds and provides a voice for local charities and voluntary
organisations. As a non-profit organisation, the radio station can offer opportunities for local
businesses to promote their products and services through very affordable advertising packages.

Launching on the 29th March 2024, Lomond Radio will expand and begin broadcasting on Digital DAB
across Glasgow. The decision to launch on Digital DAB marks a significant milestone in the station’s
journey as one of the fastest growing community radio stations in the country.

Director and Chairman, Alan Caldwell commented “We’re excited to bring the sound of Lomond
Radio to the people of Glasgow. The communities we serve in the Lomond area have a special affinity
with Glasgow and its people and view Glasgow as their city too. It’s where we go for special nights
out, to shop and for transport links with the rest of the country. We would love the people of Glasgow
to have the same affinity with the Lomond area and everything it has to offer, and that’s one of the
things we want to promote throughout our broadcasts.”

Director Paul Lucas added: “We’re eager to continue developing the station and provide a platform
for local talent, support local community groups and businesses, and spread the word to a wider
audience across the Glasgow area while still continuing to broadcast online, on our mobile apps and
smart speakers. Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) has become a popular choice for radio enthusiasts,
providing crystal-clear sound and a broader range of available stations. Lomond Radio’s move to
Digital DAB signifies a commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements in the
broadcasting industry.”

“The Digital DAB launch on Friday 29th March 2024, will be marked with a 76-hour radiothon live from
our studios” said Director Phil Briscoe. “This will give us the opportunity to involve as many of our 50+
volunteers as possible, introduce them to the new audience across Glasgow and showcase what
Lomond Radio can offer – a truly local radio station with local presenters for the people of Glasgow.
We’re putting the LOCAL back into RADIO.”
