AN INDEPENDENT Glasgow radio station which is fighting for survival hopes crowd funding will save it.

EDA Music Radio was started in February last year by Erik McCall, from Newlands, as a way to help promote unsigned and underground artists.

The 37-year-old set up the radio station at his home and it became an instant success, with thousands of listeners tuning in online.

Erik started EDA Music Radio with no commercial funding, instead using his own money, and tweets regularly everyday to try to get more people to listen in.

However, with the station struggling to make money and as funds began to run out, Erik has turned to crowd funding.

He started the campaign on in December 2013.

Erik offers a range of rewards for bands, music fans and advertisers in a bid to get them involved and support the campaign.

So far he has raised £1029, but needs about £1500.

He said: "Without being fully funded it may just be too difficult to continue - it does take a lot of time out my day.

"The station does take a lot of hard work to maintain, especially when tracks sent by artists are not properly tagged."

EDA Music Radio operates 24 hours a day and features music from some of the best independent artists not only from Scotland but from all over the world.
