Scotland No More

A Hertfordshire radio DJ has refused to play any of the country’s music until it’s known whether Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom.

Breakfast show host Graham Mack has banned Scottish acts from his show on BOB FM, an independent radio network with a limited listenership in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire.

Mack’s campaign has already reached the attention of The Scotsman, which has pointed out that his listeners are now being deprived of music by the likes of TravisDel AmitriPaolo NutiniDeacon Blue, and Alex Harvey.

“I’ve had enough of this. You’ll walk 500 hundred miles, but you don’t want anything to do with England? After all we’ve done for you,” Mack complained when referencing a song by Scottish duo The Proclaimers to introduce his ban.

“From now on, this radio station is banning anything Scottish, that includes music by all Scottish artists. Until further notice, BOB FM is now Scot Free,” he said. One of the station’s slogans is: “BOB FM – you’ll hear all sorts of stuff.” A spokesman for Better Together – which wants to keep Scotland in the UK – said, “In a week where major banks have said they plan to move business to England, this is probably not the biggest issue affecting people in Scotland.”
