Top 40 L107/LANARKSHIRE, SCOTLAND has shut down and returned its license to OFCOM, reports RADIO TODAY. The troubled station had been airing automated music, possibly from an MP3 player, since OCTOBER 29th and has now gone dark.
The station has been the subject of considerable strife over its history, including continuing ownership battles and the removal of the station's transmitter in APRIL. OFCOM recently issued a content sampling report noting that in three days' output (AUGUST 1st-3rd), the station had been out of format regarding news, which appeared to be repeated over and over. The station also closed in AUGUST 2008 but returned after a week-and-a-half off the air.
