Save BBC's Introducing in Scotland

I am supporting the efforts to save the radio 1 programme, BBC Introducing in Scotland with Ally McCrae. 

Virtually all up and coming Scottish acts who have gone on to gain fame and fortune, have enjoyed airplays or recorded sessions on shows hosted by Ally McCrae or his predecessor Vic Galloway while still unsigned – from Biffy Clyro, Franz Ferdinand and Mylo to Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic and We Were Promised Jetpacks. 

Please note that at the meeting of Glasgow City Council on 8th December, I am proposing the following motion:- 

“Council notes that as part of its operational restructuring plans – titled ‘Delivering Quality First’ – the BBC has proposed the scrapping of the Introducing in Scotland radio show which has been the only outlet provided by Radio 1 to showcase up-and-coming bands and solo artists from Scotland to a Scottish audience.

Council agrees to submit a response to the consultation by 21st December 2011 to demand that the BBC reverse its plans to scrap the Introducing in Scotland show and, to instead, protect and promote this unique programme.”
