about // Apply for a One-Off show on Subcity!


Broadcast on Subcity Radio!

For now, we are apart, but radio can bring us together! While our studio is shut, we are still able to broadcast both pre-recorded and live shows while you remain in the comfort of your bedroom. If you don’t currently have a show, we are also going to be accepting selected requests from people that wish to broadcast one off pre-recorded and live broadcasts. The programmes team will have the final say if a one-off show will go ahead to ensure our station content remains as diverse and wide-reaching as it currently is.

All types of broadcast from podcasts, live performances and mixes are encouraged. No radio experience is required, and we will provide as much technical support as possible if you have a good idea for a broadcast.

We have made a short guide to help you put together your own broadcast which can be found in the 'News' tab on the website. Live broadcasts are also equally possible – please contact [email protected] to find out technical requirements for this.

Requirements for pre-recorded shows:
- Shows should ideally be 1-2 hours. Shorter and longer broadcasts will still be considered
- Files are to be 320kbps MP3
- Send files using We-Transfer, Google Drive or Onedrive links
- Email these links to [email protected]

events // Remote Broadcast: How-to Guide


How to record a show:
First create a folder on your computer with all the music or other audio files that you would like to include in your show. There are many ways to download music – Bandcamp, Beatport and Google Play are all good places to start. There are lots of options if you wish to record your own voice or other audio including using a mobile phone microphone. Most phones have a voice recording app already installed. If you have access to a microphone and an interface, here is a guide to record audio into a computer.

To arrange, combine and edit your audio files to create your show, you will need a Digital Audio Workspace (DAW). There are loads of options for DAWs both free and paid for. Audacity (download here) and Reaper (download here) are both free and are a good introduction to audio software. Ableton (download here) offers more advanced features but is paid for (although there is a free trial offered). FL studio or Fruity Loops (download here) is another popular DAW but this is better suited for music production.

There are YouTube tutorials available for each of these programs, but the basics are broadly similar. Each audio file is represented as a waveform that can be arranged in a track on a timeline. Multiple tracks of audio can be added to a timeline to enable sounds to be overlaid. Once the files have been arranged you can then export (or “bounce”) your masterpiece as one MP3 file to be sent to us. Make sure you export the file in the requested format above. Again, tutorials for each of the specific DAWs are available that can help with this.

Feel free to contact our tech team if we can offer any additional assistance at [email protected]

Requirements for pre-recorded shows:
- Shows should ideally be 1-2 hours. Shorter and longer broadcasts will still be considered
- Files are to be 320kbps MP3
- Send files using We-Transfer, Google Drive or Onedrive links
- Email these links to [email protected]

listen // Counterflows Festival 2019

counterflows cover

Subcity Radio were lucky enough to attend this year's Counterflows Festival - one of the best experimental music festivals Glasgow and the UK has to offer. We spent the weekend talking to some of the fantastic performers and organisers that help keep Counterflows consistently one of the most interesting music events around. This includes LYZZA, Alexander Hawkins, MC Carol, Jim C. Nedd, Palm Wine, the Gorbals Youth Brass Band and Bill Wells, Dakim, Micheal LaCour, Nena Etza, Myriam Van Imschoot and Doreen Kutzke, Sholto Dobie, Humming Dogs and more. Listen back to all these interviews below:

The co-curator and founder of Counterflows Festival Alasdair Campbell joins us in the studio to discuss the origins of Counterflows, the performers and to play some music that will be heard live throughout the festival.


2) Tomorrow!

To celebrate the beginning of the festival programme we speak with:

Alexander Hawkins - Hugely talented jazz performer and improvisationist talks to us about his work and reccommends some of his favourite songs.

Gorbals Youth Brass Band & Bill Wells- we talked to the founders of this inclusive music programme, the children involved and the underground legend that wrote the piece to be performed, Bill Wells

Nina Etza also joins us in the studio for a fantastic selection of latinx tunes from QTWOC artists


3) Day 1 Recap

After the first night of Counterflows we spoke to:

Sholto Dobie - Scottish musician and performance artist speaks to us about his creative process and forthcoming album with Penultimate Press.

Doreen Kutzke & Myriam Van Imschoot - Yodel sound art collaborators tell us about their work and the diverse history of the yodel.


4) Day 2 Recap

French noise artists and Latinx american icons:

MC Carol - Brazillian baille funk godess gives us some insight to her opinions on music, politics and dance music.

LYZZA - Rising star featured on Boiler Room and NTS spoke with us about being called experimental and gave us some advice on acheivement.


5) Day 3 Recap

Hip-hop, hardcore and hope:

DAKIM - Underground hip-hop producer and beatmaker talked with us about creativity and taking hip hop seriously as an art form.

Michael LaCour (aka B L A C K I E ALL CAPS WITH SPACES) - Before his first performance as Micheal LaCour, the incredibly influential industrial hip-hop artist gave us insight into his influences.

Fielding Hope - Subcity alumni, programmer for Cafe OTO and Counterflows co-curator tells us about his career and behind the scenes of the festival

Jim C. Nedd & Palm Wine - Incredibly knowledgable musicologists and DJs Jim and Simone gave us an incredibly informative interview into Pico soundsystem culture. Unfortunately due to time we couldn't broadcast enough of the interview to do it justice so look out for a full version coming out soon.


A huge thank you to everyone that spoke with us, those that tuned in and especially to Alasdair and Fielding for making Counterflows happen

They'll be playing music created exclusively by femmes and LGBT+ musicians, mixing sexy R&B with smooth electronica, as well as the occasional pop banger thrown in for good measure.

Trainwreck Headlining for one night only is Chicago-based legend Jakey Witz aka ATZ, playing his Scottish debut.

Get onboard and you will have the opportunity to influence where thousands of people click their mouse and how they engage with their favourite shows.

You'll need to be able to develop new features for the website, or even new websites. Check out our guide to see what we're capable of doing in a few short weeks.

Grounding in HTML, CSS, Python and Django is key. Knowledge of using and administering Linux alongside Git version control is desired, but not necessary. Most importantly, we need someone who is self motivated to find the solutions to their own problems.
