The tour covers over 1 mile, 4 venues and at least 200 years of music history. There are lots of places to stop for a refreshment or have a look around at the destinations and venues on the tour. Hear interviews with the likes of Radio Scotland's Vic Galloway, Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite, Emma Pollock from The Delgados and Jill Rodger from the Jazz Festival as well as many more famous names from the Glasgow music scene past and present.
Brought to you by the team behind Radio Magnetic, one of the UK's longest running internet radio stations, the Glasgow Music Tour takes you to the city's much loved venues old and new including the O2 Academy, The Scotia Bar, The Clutha Vaults and loads more. Your guide and narrator is Scottish music guru, radio presenter and DJ, Jim Gellatly.
And the music? Well, you name it… rock, pop, hip hop, indie, house, punk, reggae, electronica, classical, jazz, soul, blues, folk, techno and, from time to time, the completely unclassifiable.
The app also enables you to tweet your discoveries, get special offers from the venues, find out what's going on and call or connect with venues to book tickets for gigs.
