XFM will return to Scottish airwaves in April.

The alternative radio station will return to Scotland from April 7, with local presenters including former XFM Scotland presenter Fraser Thomson set to return alongside Jim Gellatly. Thomson will host the Breakfast Show when the station relaunches, taking to the air between 6-10am weekdays.

Gellatly, meanwhile, will host XFM Scotland Drivetime between 4-7PM, Monday-Friday. The presenters will be joined by XFM regulars Jo Good (weekdays from 1-4pm) John Kennedy (weekdays 10pm-1am, pictured inset, second from left), Blur drummer Dave Rowntree (every Thursday 9-10pm) and comedian Josh Widdicombe (Saturday 10am-1pm).

Xfm Scotland, formerly Beat 106, was launched in January 2006. On 7 November 2008, it became part of the Galaxy Network and was renamed Galaxy Scotland, now 105-106 Capital FM Scotland.

XFM Scotland's Breakfast presenter Fraser Thomson said: "Scotland has a strong connection with music so XFM is a great station for Scotland. I'll be squeezing loads of tunes into four hours, unearthing some new gems and digging out some old favourites."

XFM will be broadcast on 96.3FM in Paisley and on Digital Radio across central Scotland. It will also be available via www.xfm.co.uk.
