Various – Save BBC Introducing In Scotland
ABAGA017 – Released on 19th December 2011
ABAGA Records are part of a campaign to help save the BBC Introducing In Scotland show on Radio 1. The BBC are restructuring and are cutting a weekly 2 hour show every Sunday at midnight that showcases Scottish talent. This would be a huge loss for local musicians and listeners, and make it harder for Scottish artists to reach international audiences. We urge you to get involved by downloading this compilation (all proceeds go to the Drake Music Scotland charity). The Pop Cop and Pelmet Nights are also involved in the campaign and have done a great job with the online petition and facebook page. Meetings with SNP MSP Joan McAlpine and Cabinet Secretary Fiona Hyslop in the Scottish Parliament have also shown how important this show is for Scottish music, and they will be a great help in letting the right people know about this campaign.
