Really pleased to negotiate the broadcasting of Colin MacDonald’s weekly radio show. Broadcast live on Thursday evening’s from 10pm until midnight and also it is repeated on Saturday evening’s from 9pm just after the Beatcroft Social with the usual caveat that the repeat may reference events that by Saturday would have passed. Out first show […]
Something just so beautiful watching sunrise in Shetland whilst sitting sipping coffee as Broadcast Asia convention gets underway for Day 2 here in Singapore. As the sun comes up 60 North Radio is playing Standing On The Corner by Tears For Fears, Heart by Oberhofer, Saga with What Do I Know and strangely enough the […]
After a period off-air we have now managed to repair the damaged equipment that happened after electrical disturbances and lightening strikes back in 2015 and 2016. Launching in Autumn 2019 is our new low power FM radio service to deliver tourist information radio to a number of the Shetland rural communities on 87.7MHz. We will […]
Phill Ball has sent us his playlist inspired by the Shetland Webcams and the 60 North Radio format. We have also included many of these tracks into our station playlists. Thanks again Phil and feel free to send us another 2 hours if you have the time.

We also have a second stream which is […]

The stars are seen rotating as the simmer dim approaches its darkest time…which really is not that […]
We have now installed our new Omnia audio processor. Currently this is being used for our main Studio 1 service and is sounding just great. We will be making some tweaks over the coming weeks (and probably months) just to get the best sound for the current eclectic format. So much debate surrounds the use […]
Our latest webcam covers the northern area of the Lerwick Harbour is now online and kindly sponsored by the Lerwick Port Authority. The sponsorship means that we can enable full HD streaming and host it on our primary media platform. Check out our many other webcams around the coast of Shetland.
Not content with just one submission Zoe sent us another 2 hours and we have, once again, included a number of her tracks into our programming. Zoe listened to the station for some time and then submitted tracks she thought would fit the format – she was spot on! Thanks again Zoe.
