Hi folks - thanks for your support last night as we test-drove Promote shetland's new 60 North 'Visual Radio' platform.
Today, just past midsummer, we launch the service properly with 12 hours of live moving pictures and a whole bunch of new radio programmes, live and recorded. You'll see and hear, we hope, Shetland at its best!
Just to be clear - you can listen here by clicking on ANY of the webcam and video streams, but ONLY the ZE3 'contemporary' radio stream. The address is http://www.shetland.org/60n
You will get pictures, assuming it's all working, from Lerwick, Sumburgh and we hope Unst. Including pictures from the main studio in Market Street, Lerwick, and from Sumburgh Head.
Here's a planned schedule for today:
