About Glad Radio

Glad Radio is a community podcasting project for the Southside of Glasgow.

We're here to provide an opportunity for members of the community to gain experience and confidence, to be creative and to make their voices heard. Our priority is lesser-heard voices, but everyone’s included. We want to know about all your projects and passions.

We're a Scottish charity, entirely reliant on volunteers, so please do get in touch if you're interested.
