Wave FM Dundee and Perth to be replaced by Pure Radio

Wave FM will cease broadcasting in July to make way for Pure Radio Scotland on 102 and 106.6FM.

It’ll be the first move onto FM for the currently digital-only Pure Radio, which has Robin Galloway on Breakfast and is owned by DC Thomson Media.

Wave FM, also owned by DC Thomson, started life as Discovery 102/Wave 102 and expanded to replace/merge with Heartland FM in Perth in recent years.

Adam Findlay, Head of Radio at DC Thomson Media, told RadioToday: “We’re thrilled to be extending the reach of Pure Radio into new areas. There’s no doubt the listeners will love hearing something different.

“From legendary Robin Galloway and Aberdeen’s Paul Harper to local Perthshire girl Lynne Hogan, Pure will be a breath of fresh Scottish air to listeners in Dundee and Perth.”

Robin Galloway adds: “I’m so excited that Pure Radio will soon be heard across Tayside. We’re 100% Scottish and to be able to expand our radio station beyond the Central Belt into Tayside is fantastic.’

DC Thomson Media also owns Aberdeen station Original 106 and Fife’s Kingdom FM.
