BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra

In Scotland on the 23rd to the 30th November this year there was a new station on the DAB Dial. 

MUSIC| We've launched! BBC Radio Scotland Music Extra is a go and we will be broadcasting for the next 8 days. — BBC Radio Scotland (@BBCRadioScot) November 23, 2016

Radio Scotland Music Extra was a pop up music service from BBC Radio Scotland, broadcasting for 8 days, showcasing new and not so new Scottish Musical talent. It’s always difficult to judge the numerical success of a station that's only around for a short period of time.

In these kind of cases, a good measure is the bounce back reaction, the most of which has been positive!

Here  are some of my own personal highlights:

"Because of this station, Music Extra, we’re only beginning now to scratch the surface of our own popular culture. This should be something that runs and runs and runs."
