3C was a United Kingdom radio station, based in Clydebank, Dunbartonshire, Scotland and was provided by Radio Clyde, owned by Scottish Radio Holdings, later bought by EMAP Radio. It played country music.

Its sister stations were Clyde 1 and Clyde 2.

On 26 March 2007, the station told listeners that it was closing at the next day, stating that

"It is the result of a brand review undertaken by our parent company, which operates a large number of radio stations and other media interests."

At 5pm on 27 March 2007, they played their final song (Tennessee by The Wreckers) and began re-broadcasting Clyde 1 on Freeview.

Bauer Radio launched Downtown Country in April 2015 as a sister service to Downtown Radio in Northern Ireland. The station is available on the Northern Ireland DAB multiplex. Chris Country also launched on DAB Radio in 2016 broadcasting to several regions including London and Manchester using newer DAB+ technology.
