BORN TO BE WIDE RADIO SEMINAR

Born To Be Wide is pleased to announce the participation of Stuart Barrie, Capital FM Scotland programme controller, to the radio seminar, which takes place at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus on Thursday [3 November].

He will join the BBC’s Vic Galloway, Clyde’s Jim Gellatly, plugger Grant Crain and the producer of Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson show, Stewart Cruickshank.

“I am delighted that Stuart is able to take part,” says Born To Be Wide co-organiser, Olaf Furniss. “His extensive experience in commercial radio will provide an invaluable insight into how the sector works, and he is the perfect complement to the other panellists.”

The seminar will examine how programming decisions are made, which shows support new talent and how best to approach programmers, producers and DJs.

Several panel participants will remain to meet guests and to DJ with music selected from Edinburgh’s Oxfam Record Shop. Everything played will be available to buy, with the proceeds going to the charity.

Seminar tickets are very limited and due to considerable advance sales so far, organisers recommend buying in advance to avoid disappointment. For details visit www.borntobewide.co.uk

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
