SRH Annual Report 2003 Extract

Scottish Radio Holdings (SRH) produced, like most companies, an Annual Report. Instead of reproducing this in full, we have extracted the more interesting (to this website) section.

River Records

Uniquely among the major commercial radio groups, SRH has retained much of the material the stations have recorded over the years. These recordings, running to thousands of hours, range from pop to classical music, and from drama to interviews with people of note and in every walk of life. The recordings stretch back to the early 1970s and of course continue to be added to each day.

To help exploit this valuable archive the company has formed River Records, and appointed record industry supremo Jimmy Devlin as Managing Director under my Chairmanship. Starting at the 'popular' music end we have begun the process of cleaning and digitalising the recordings, entered into a special series of agreements with Universal Music and begun discussions with selected artists no longer tied to any major record company. In the meantime, Universal has selected its first list of recordings of artists in which it has a continuing interest and would wish to release during 2004, and other major record companies with which we are in discussion may do likewise.

I believe that River Records has the potential to become a potent force and a good revenue earner for the group which, in turn, will continue to supply it with valuable new material.
