Radio Free Scotland
This new online radio station launched offically to coincide with the SNP conference (October 2007) by a group of patriots that believe that independence is the correct path for Scotland.
In Scotland practically all our media is union biased, The SNP and other nationalist parties are given the bare minimum media exposure and we at RFS have started this station online as a means to counter the falsehoods of the unionist myths with the 100% truth about Scottish independence.
For 300 years Scotland has been denied its democratic right to self determination. In 1707, the Scottish ruling elite voted the then Scottish Parliament out of existence, coupling it with England and Wales and in doing so, ignoring the will of the Scottish people.
Between 1956-1965 the original Radio Free Scotland (RFS) broadcast through the sound channel of BBC television after God Save the Queen finished in the evening, and, later on, on 262 meters medium wave on the radio. The first broadcast interrupted a BBC newscast when viewers in Perth were told to stay tuned following sign off. This "pirate" radio transmission opened with the provocative statement: "This is Radio Free Scotland proclaiming to the nation that the fight for independence is on in earnest". This roving station was heard for almost a month in Glasgow, Ayrshire and Perth.
The Scottish National Party announced official backing for Radio Free Scotland because of the government ban on any broadcasts by the Scottish and Welsh nationalists on the BBC. The BBC later paid for the right to re-broadcast some RFS material and the SNP and Plaid Cymru gained the right, as other parties already had, to time on mainstream broadcasters. Leading figures in Radio Free Scotland included "Controller General", Gordon Wilson, who later became an MP (1974-1987) and was Chairman (Convener) of the SNP from 1979 to 1990. Douglas Henderson, also later an MP, was "Director of Programmes" between 1963-1965. Scotland's oldest woman when she died, Annie Knight, hosted the station in her living room during 1962.
