YOUR Radio (formerly Castle Rock FM) is a Independent Local Radio station, serving Argyll & Bute, Inverclyde and West Dunbartonshire. It broadcasts from studios in Dumbarton and is owned and operated wholly independently.

Overview[edit]

Originally broadcasting as Castle Rock FM, the Dumbarton-based licence relaunched as YOUR Radio when it expanded its coverage area to Helensburgh (broadcasting on 106.9 FM). Previously owned by Clyde and Forth Press, it was sold onto Romanes Media Group, until the firm was bought by Newsquest in August 2015.[1] Three months later, the station was bought out for an undisclosed sum by directors Gary Marshall and Spencer Pryor.[2]

Programming[edit]

All of Your Radio's programming is produced and broadcast from its Dumbarton studios. The station's weekday presenters are Stuart Dickson (breakfast), Derek McIntyre (mid-morning), Gary Marshall (Drivetime) and John Scott (late night).[3] Weekend presenters include Mike McLean, Derek McIntyre, Josie Smith and Rachelle Rhienne.[4] Specialist programmes include Mike McLean's 'The Vinyl Frontier' which is a weekly show running for over 13 years on a Sunday Evening, and 'Ask the Lawyer' with local celebrity lawyer Austin Lafferty.

News[edit]

Local news bulletins air hourly from 6-10am and 4-7pm on weekdays with headlines at 7.30am, 8.30am, 4.30pm and 5.30pm Weekend bulletins air hourly from 8-11am. The station carries hourly national bulletins from Sky News Radio at all other times.[5]
