British female artists are underrepresented on UK radio, a new study has found.
The Gender Disparity Radio Report, from Women in CTRL and Linda Coogan Byrne, has produced a report to provide analysis of the 20 most-played british acts across British radio stations in the period of June 2019 - 2020, and the top 100 radio airplay chart in 2020.
Contrary to what might have been assumed, streaming numbers in the US are down amid widespread self-quarantining during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"These figures indicate that the public are turning to radio in times of crisis," a spokeswoman for Global told the BBC.

Clyde Built Radio will launch in Glasgow in January.

The station is named after Thomson's 'Clyde Built' compilations, which showcase the Glasgow scene, and is focussed on a need to give Glasgow a local station to compare with others across the UK, such as NTS in London.
