About Us

“Friendly presenters and a great wee station”  - 2020 Listener survey

 

As part of Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust our purpose is to address inequality and improve wellbeing. 

We do this by supporting local people to be active and involved, by providing media training and skillbuildng as a pathway to employment, and by using radio to connect people and communities.

We truly believe that radio can really be for everyone. CamGlen Radio is radio made for the community, by the community.  Our volunteers make CamGlen Radio the radio station it is today, producing and broadcasting a great mix of music, community interviews and a wide range of content for all ages alongside a focus on artists, history and news local to Cambuslang and Rutherglen.

 

Our home is in Number 18, which hosts our custom built, professional broadcast facilities featuring fully sound insulated, fully connected broadcast, production and performance studios and where we (pre-Covid) host our regular CamGlen Radio Presents gig nights. We also host live performances on our Youtube channel.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers continue to work hard from home, creating new and interesting content, and keeping the local community updated with what's going on.  Volunteers develop their radio skills covering all aspects of radio operations, from planning and presenting shows through to editing, production and broadcast support.  We offer a wide range of operational radio roles, a supportive placement programme for those who may need it, our Youth Amplified platform that gets children and young people on the radio and tailored opportunities for LGBT+, religious groups, women and ethnically diverse communities. 

 

Particularly since Covid-19, we want to ensure our radio broadcasts connect to people so they don’t feel alone at a time when the world is feeling quite different.  By listening to us, people can experience moments of laughter, joy and things that interest and help them. These might be our specialist music shows, our regular request shows, our radio bookclubs, our church services, The Golden Age Hour (for seniors), our photography radio show, our meditation and relaxation sessions and much, much more. 

 

CamGlen Radio also continues to provide essential information about Covid-19 news, guidance and local Covid-19 support, alongside promoting the services and activities of over 250 local organisations and groups.  This includes the full range of opportunities available through Healthy n Happy Community Development Trust as the local anchor organisation for Cambuslang and Rutherglen. 

 

We believe that one else can bring you something so special and relevant to you and your community, after all, it’s brought to you by local people!
