UK LGBT radio station Gaydio has announced it will be going on DAB in Scotland for the rest of the summer.

Gaydio, which is also on DAB radio in London and Sussex, will be available across Central Scotland (including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Paisley & Stirling) from 14 July to 31 August.

The station will broadcast throughout the Pride Glasgow festival and the Commonwealth Games.

Station Director Toby Whitehouse said: “Gaydio is already available online throughout the UK and with almost half of the population now owning a DAB Radio, it’s the perfect time for us to make the station as easily available as we are at other parts of the UK.

“Gaydio will continue to broadcast on DAB across London & Sussex and FM in Manchester – meaning around 20 million people will be able to access the station through their DAB or FM radios.”

Alastair Smith, Chief Executive of Pride Glasgow, added: “It’s great that Gaydio will not only be available in cars and on radios across central Scotland, but it means that there is a unique opportunity for people to be part of it.”

Pride Glasgow 2014 is Scotland’s largest LGBT Pride Festival and runs from 19 July to 3 of August.
