Regrettably, I’ve decided to wind down Scott’s Radio Site at the end of the year. Unfortunately, the relaunch of the website as one focused on community radio has not been deemed to be a success.
Although visitor numbers have remained strong since the relaunch last year, time constraints have prevented full updates from taking place, and the efforts of maintaining this website can no longer be justified.
Additionally, the direction community radio appears to be taking is not one the author can support. Like with commercial radio, community and smaller stations appear to be following a similar route to low quality DAB+ services, something which I cannot support.
The network is also patchy, with some areas having several analogue community radio services, whilst others don’t have any. It would appear this trend is being followed into the small scale DAB era.
What’s next for Scott’s Radio Site? In simple terms, I don’t know. I’ve not ruled out another format change, and have a couple of ideas in mind for the future. For now though, the logo/brand, website address, and social media feeds will be retained. The website will continue to receive some updates until full closure on or around the 31st December.
Thanks for reading.
