Welcome and News

FCUM Radio Summer Proms - An update for you all ahead of the first gig.

This week at FCUM Radio towers, we were shocked to learn that Euchrid Eucrow had to pull out of the gig night at the end of this month. After dusting the disappointment off our microphones and press passes, we pulled ourselves together and within 48 hours we managed to seal a replacement. A what a replacement they are. Pyjama Party now join Kamal Arafa and Dr Butler’s Hatstand Medicine Band for the first ever FCUM Radio Summer Proms.

These bands are going to blow your socks off and are all playing for free to help raise as much money as possible for the Development Fund. That’s right - every penny, pound or euro taken on the night will be put straight into the DF. It’s £3 entry and will take place on Wednesday 26th May at Retro Bar, Sackville St, Manchester.

Please come and support the night and support our move to Ten Acres.
