Glasgow is Europe's capital of rock music (at least according to Time magazine). Each episode of this show looks back (but not always that far back) at the music, the people and the places that have made the city a centre for popular music over the last thirty years (and counting). We will be featuring tracks from bands and artists who have been, or are, based in Glasgow, interviewing scenesters from over the years, and discussing what exactly gives the city its creative edge (and not just in music).
