Get in the van celebrates the vitality and diversity of Glasgow's live music scene. The show's playlist is selected each week from acts who will be playing in the city over the coming fortnight. Whether showcasing emergent bands or playing music by established artists, the emphasis is always on eclecticism and quality, rather than genre, style or fashion.

I'm moving to London at the weekend, so will not be doing the show next year. The last year has been a blast, and I wanted to wish everyone at Subcity all the best,

ultimate gitv!!

Get In The Van // 08.06.09

Hey Everyone,

Last Get In The Van for this year at least. I'll be finishing off the series by playing a lot of music from some great Glaswegian bands who play in the city on pretty regular basis. I hope some of you will take the opportunity to catch them at one of their shows over the next few weeks, which I suppose is ultimately what GITV has all been about.

I've had a lot of fun doing the show this year, I hope some of you have enjoyed listening, until next time,

3 feet high...

Get In The Van // 01.06.09 // Three Feet High and Rising

Hey Everyone,

It's gonna be a slightly strange show this week. With all due respect to the artists I'll be playing on the show tonight, I think it's probably fair to say that there aren't quite the range of amazing acts playing in Glasgow over the next fortnight that we have come to expect recently. I think it'll be a good show all the same with some great tunes from De La Soul alongside contributions from Lady Sovereign and Jarvis Cocker.

Hope some of you will have a listen
