FAMOUS DJs from around the world have joined a Scottish radio station as part of its new line-up.

Renowned artists Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto are just some of the names announced as part of Beat 106 Scotland, the country’s only dedicated dance-music station.

The announcement comes as the independent station, which broadcasts from locations around Scotland, celebrates 100,000 listening sessions since launching just last month.

Continuing its mission to bring Scottish audiences the very best dance anthems from around the world, around-the-clock, Beat 106 kicks-off its new schedule this week.

Paul Oakenfold, who joins the new weekend line-up with a Saturday night show, said: “It’s great to be on the airwaves again in Scotland. I have amazing memories of Beat 106 back in the day, so to be part of its resurrection feels really good. I can’t wait for Saturday night and hope everyone in Scotland and beyond tunes in.”

Richard Wilkinson, who founded the station, added: “While Beat 106 Scotland is incredibly proud to be a Scottish radio station, we are very excited to welcome such major international names to the station. There really is something for everyone and anyone that loves dance music.

“The pandemic has had a very real and devastating impact on the night time music industry, which we consider ourselves - in some ways – to be part of.

“Nothing can ever match the power of being on a dance floor, but we hope Beat 106 comes pretty close.”
