XFM Scotland Returns To The Airwaves

Station to launch on April 7th...
XFM Scotland

XFM originally came to Scotland back in 2006, part of a re-branding exercise to replace the much-missed Beat 106.

Boasting a wide-ranging roster of DJs, XFM Scotland enjoyed a short but memorable run before encountering difficulties during the summer of 2008.

Another re-branding exercise took the franchise off the air, with a number of original presenters deciding to depart from the station.

Now the XFM Scotland name is to return. Launching on April 7th, the line up includes Fraser Thomson, Jim Gellatly, Tom Russell and more.

XFM managing editor, Chris Baughen, said: "Coming back to Scotland after nearly six years away is huge for us. We’re really excited to be returning to our loyal listeners across the country. We’ll continue to support emerging Scottish bands, as well as XFM favourites from across indie, alternative and rock music."

XFM Scotland’s new Drivetime presenter Jim Gellatly added: "Some of the best moments of my career were on XFM Scotland so I’m over the moon to be joining the station again nearly six years on. When I got the call from Chris [Baughen], I didn't have to think twice. It feels like coming home for me."

XFM Scotland launches on April 7th.
