Solar Island

Solar Island has been broadcast on Subcity Radio since 2002. Initially starting as a late-night outlet for a group of first year Glaswegian stoners with an equal love of both Chris Morris and Bergerac, it has morphed through various guises over the years from an ill-advised stint in the drive-time slot to a time-travel based scripted comedy and the occasional Dimbleby spoof, commentating at ancient university ceremonies. Solar continue to lampoon anything within reach whilst staying true to its original 3am Buckfast fuelled motto: "Solar Island on a Wednesday night. Might be fucking amazing. Might be fucking shite."
