Northsound Radio commenced broadcasting at 6am on 27 July 1981 from converted studios in an old schoolhouse on Kings Gate, near Anderson Drive in Aberdeen. Originally, the station broadcast from 6am to 8pm each day on 1035 kHz (290 metres) and 96.9 FM (VHF).
In 1995, the station split its services to become Northsound 1 and Northsound 2. Both stations now also broadcast online, on smartphone applications and DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting).
On April 3rd 2018, Northsound 2 became the first commercial radio station in Scotland to go completely digital by turning off their Medium Wave (AM) transmitters. You can read about it here.
