Talking to Glasgow live Andrew Thomson said of the station:
"There's a handful of reasons, but mostly; over the past few years I've been travelling as a DJ and in many of the cities I visit, they have a community station which serves as a meeting point and a place to interact with like-minded individuals.
"Clubs and record shops provide this too of course, but radio seems more neutral and brings things back to the common idea of sharing good music with others.
"I've also noticed over the years, that some of these stations (like Rinse and NTS in London, Red Light Radio in Amsterdam and The Lot in NYC) have helped local artists develop international followings through their regular shows. So another big motivator is being able to shine a spotlight on what's happening in Glasgow, to anyone around the world.
"Lastly, I'd like to build a platform which lowers the barrier of entry for the next generation of artists and DJ's and make room for those who'd like to get involved in music, but don't necessarily have the means to start running a party or a label or buy a set of decks and amass a record collection. If you feel like you've got a good show in you, please do get in touch."
