For the station's history prior to taking its current form, see Radio Clyde
Clyde 1 was born out of the compulsory transmission splitting enforced by the UK regulators in the 1990s, developing the FM frequency into Radio Clyde into a Top-40 format radio station.
The station's Freeview carriage came as a consequence of the closure of stable-mate 3C by the station's then-owners, and resulted in UK-wide coverage.
Every year Clyde 1 holds an event which they call Clyde 1 Live at the SECC in Glasgow. The event includes some of the many artists which are broadcast on the station, past events have featured Calvin Harris, Labrinth, Jessie J, Olly Murs, The Sugababes, Amelia Lily, Pixie Lott, Mcfly, Lawson, Cover Drive, Matt Cardle, Gary Barlow, John Newman, The Vamps and also Dappy.
The station broadcasts contemporary music as well as live coverage of Glasgow's football teams and broad coverage of other sport. Particular emphasis is paid to football coverage with the SuperScoreboard phone-in airing weekdays, and both live coverage and phone-in at weekends.
In addition to locally produced programming, the station broadcasts a number of programmes produced by sister stations in the Place Network, namely, The Big Saturday Show, Scotland's Hot 20 and Saturday Night with Krystle which are broadcast from sister station Forth One in Edinburgh; and the weekday shows Old Skool & Anthems with Neil Bentley and In:Demand programmes which are broadcast from sister station Key 103 in Manchester.
