SAVE THE ARCHES PROTEST 26th JUNE 2015

Friday June 26th 2015… 09:00 am Glasgow city centre, and it’s just another grey morning like any other in Scotland. Only there are a small group of people gathering on John Street who have come along to show their support for one of the cities most iconic venues of culture and clubbing this city has and will ever see.

Looking around at the faces, it’s not rowdy punters from the club nights, It’s just normal people fighting to save their jobs. There are people from the arts side and the clubbing side alike, Artists, Promoters, Dj’s and also from Groove City Radio..

Not quite sure what GCC were expecting but the Police Scotland are also in attendance, much to the amusement an bewilderment of everyone there…. So the speakers took to the stage, every one as passionate as the next in every word they said ! i looked round the crowd of people and couldn’t help but notice the young children playing with their ‘save the arches’ banners.. The closure of The Arches has affected a lot of people, including them now their parents are fighting to keep their jobs… It has had an affect on everyone mentioned, including Groove City Radio…

We pride our selves on the fact we were in a position to bring college students into the station for very valued work experience working in a live studio setting with some of Scotland’s best Dj’s.. And that sometimes included them joining our production teams for live broadcasts from some of the biggest club nights at this venue, with some of them being dj’s & music producers them selves, they had that stepping stone through working with Groove City Radio and the likes of Colours, they were given the chance to play in a venue that EVERYONE want’s to have ‘I’ve played the arches’ on their C.V….. It’s the venue that most of us of a certain age have grown up with, had some of the best night’s of our lives in, found and made life long friends in, seen most of the worlds biggest artists play in and watched peoples careers take off from….

But it’s all gone now…. Or is it ? As the crowd drifted away after the speakers had finished… some passionate chants of *save our arches *sack the board and from the clubbers among us a burst of *HWFG and *ONE MORE TUNE just for the road…. We urge everyone to keep an eye on the #savethearches social media pages and come along to next rally and show your support if you want to help make a difference…. The future of Glasgow’s club culture is in our hands ! “PEOPLE MAKE GLASGOW” That means you….

Hope to see you all at the next one 😉

 

GROOVE CITY RADIO / STEREOFUNK / LIVE BROADCAST / VINYL RULES ARENA / MAY 3rd 2015

We are delighted to announce that we will be broadcasting LIVE from the ‘VINYL RULES ARENA’ at this years 10th STEREOFUNK event at Strathclyde Park on May 3rd 2015

The one day event takes place at Strathclyde Country Park, Lanarkshire on the May Day Bank Holiday and boasts a very special, intimate festival vibe that is second to none.

Stereofunk showcases the talents of over 100 of Scotland’s best djs and bands as well as a sprinkling of well known international talent. Over 80 djs and 15 bands play across seven arenas at the all day event which runs from 12 noon to 10.30pm.

The brand Stereofunk was founded in 2005 by local djs Stevie Lennon & Craig Kelman who at the time wanted to add a new twist to Scottish clubbing by ‘taking the best people to the best places to have the best parties’. That very summer the boys descended deep into the woods of Wiston to an old 18th Century lodge alongside another 150 like minded revellers for the first ever Stereofunk ‘You Got The Love’. Following on with other secret castle parties here and there, the magical atmospheres at the events captured the imagination of many from far and wide and before long the event had to move to Strathclyde Park to cope with demand. The rest is history…

Nowadays Stereofunk aims to put on fantastic events which have a great atmosphere, a great crowd and don’t cost the earth. Already renowned for delivering all of these the event continues to grow year on year with sell out after sell out.

Over the years Stereofunk has hosted many artists including Fedde Le Grand, Yousef, The Complete Stone Roses, Grant Nelson, Tim Burgess, Judge Jules, The Underground Jam, Bodyrox, Bart B More, The Kings Of Lyon, Danny Rampling, The Fillers, K Klass, Funkagenda and Dave Pearce.

The event is held at Strathclyde Park on an area of grass near to the Watersports centre. It is a fantastic picturesque location not only in the heart of Lanarkshire but also the centre of Scotland and has superb road and rail links

The event is for over 18s only and has fully licensed bars, quality food vendors and still continues to be one of the most affordable festivals in Britain.

HOUSE MATTERS presents My Favourite mix from Digital DJ Vic – Saturday 13:00-14:00gmt

Iain Boney Clark’s House Matters is delighted to bring you ‘My Favourite Mix’ feat. Digital DJ Vic…

Originally from Brooklyn, New York Vic started Dj ing in the late 80’s at the early age of 13 and by the 90’s he was old enough to play in some clubs. Vic was perfecting his craft when this new sound called HOUSE music came around and that was it he was hooked. Vic moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1993 and got involved in its club scene and thats where He met Nader. 20 Years later we are now doing a podcast on ITunes called CLUB N V GlobalCast and our fan base and followers are growing fast. We love what we do and are making are way into producing new House music based on what got us hooked on it in the 1st place. Some of my personal favorite DJ’s/producers I look at that I aspire to be like are Todd Terry, David Morales, and Louie Vega. I followed some of these guys when I was coming up and they still continue to inspire!
