Welcome to Chief Radio

An award winning Edinburgh based station run by musicians, with a 5* APP and now also on Edinburgh DAB.  Established in July 2020 when we recognised a need for a station that was truly local and with the intention of supporting not only our communities but also unsigned/independent artists from any genre from across the UK and in particular Scotland.

With flexible playlists and less repeated chart tunes.

Kirsty Baird started Chief radio when her band Hanley and the Baird got to No.27 in the UK Download chart with no commercial airplay.  Something that happens often. Commercial stations play established artists.  We identified a need for a more level playing field. 

We are a registered CIC company.  We have scope to train people to become a presenter.  Already we have raised over £150,000 with Sing in the City and Hanley and the Baird and we run multiple online classes.  Take a look through our website and get in touch.
