All of the programming is produced and presented locally from our studios in Peterhead, except the Chart Show with Jason Scott and Big Fat Party Anthems with Big Tommy and Club Life which is independently produced. 

Buchan Radio automates some aspects of programming using computer technology.

There is normally no automation during daytime. Certain shows are pre-recorded and broadcast 'as live'.

Buchan Radio plays a wide and varied selection of music from the fifties through to the present day. 

There are regular local news, weather and travel updates throughout the weekday daytime schedule (the Breakfast Show, Morning Show, Workplace Anthems and the Big Drive Home). 

We aim to provide an opportunity for local charity and good causes to get publicity with our "Community Calendar". If you have something that would be suitable click here.
