One of the reasons Kirsty Baird set up Chief Radio was because she wanted a platform to feature and focus on the Scottish Chart. It seemed nobody was playing it. All the commercial stations in Scotland were playing the UK chart even though our Scottish one has been around since 1991.
We noticed that the chart had been removed and we asked the Official Chart Company, Kantar and Apple Music why it had been stopped. We started this petition.
This is now in the hands of our MSP's and we hope that we have better news in the months to come.
We believe that Scotland should have it's own chart. A bigger one, a better one. A chart that not only reflects the music that is being bought in Scotland but one that shows the talent that we have here north of the border and the talent from the rest of the world that we support.
