Radio Tuesday was an artist-run radio station based in Glasgow set up to produce and broadcast sound art, experimental music, new music, poetry, documentary and other uses of sound. Starting in 1999 sporadic broadcasts took place across Glasgow and the surrounding area involving hundreds of artists.

During February 2000 Radio Tuesday set up a station and broadcast in Helsinki as part of a residency organised by The Modern Institute (Glasgow) at KIASMA Museum.

Later that year Radio Tuesday installed themselves at Transmission Gallery (Glasgow). For the duration of the exhibition the space became a resource area, recording studio, conference room, a venue for gigs, cinema space, gallery and of course – a radio station.

In 2001 Radio Tuesday completed a residency with Molendinar Drugs Services in the Royston Road area of Glasgow. This culminated in the creation of a local radio station, Bolt FM, run and programmed by members of the moving On Project, local residents and other volunteers.

The Cassette only release ‘Wide General Vicinity’, covering the first series of broadcasts was released in 1999. ‘e.g. Sometime Instant’, the follow up CD was released in 2002. Both releases feature a broad range of the artists and musicians involved with the broadcasts.
