All about the Music 2: Wha’s Like Us?

Written by on 26 July 2021

Hi, Fiona here again with the second of our series of music blogs.

Our first blogpost covered our New Scottish Music Show which is filled with brand new releases – but what happens to all those great tracks when they have been around for a few months? What about all the fantastic Scottish indie music output from the last 20 years or more?

Wha’s Like Us?

Introducing our Scottish indie music show “Wha’s Like Us” . 100% Scottish, 100% great music which has stood the test of time and still deserves its place on our playlist. Then we top it up every month with those tracks from the New Scottish Music Show which we think deserve to “graduate”.

When’s it on?

We have so many great Scottish indie songs in our collection that we can put on a brand new show several times a week. You can hear our scheduled broadcasts of Wha’s Like Us at 3pm Mondays to Fridays with an extra late night show at 11pm on Thursdays.

Featured Artists

We feature a wide range of Scottish artists such as these and many, many more:

Listen on demand

We also add one Wha’s Like Us show to our Mixcloud channel at the end of every week, so if you miss the live broadcasts you can still listen on demand whenever you feel like it. The track list for this week’s Mixcloud show is:
