It was blasted out via my old side bander which I received pretty clear on windy days. Never got it on fm out in Middlesbrough but picked it up through that as my mate picked them up on fm which he's in Scotland well not spoke to him in years thought. so then he keyed up on his side bander then I received it on a windy day I recall it. So I phoned they guys for a shout I was like wow that's a lot of calls there receiving for shouts. So then I phoned them lol

Club FM, Allusion FM, Mixolgy, Ka-oss FM, Horizon FM... This list goes on. In The 90's the airwaves in Glasgow were littered with pirates, particularly the late 90's. Club FM is still running to this day, only 1 of 2 current active stations alongside Pulse FM.
