FCUM Radio schedule for the week beginning 07/06/10

Welcome and News

...... FCUM Radio’s Bare Necessities

Well, it is all go here at FCUM Radio towers. Following the success of the first Proms night, plans are being put into place for Proms II on Tuesday 29th June. More to be revealed soon on that one.

Next weekend we also start to record ’FC’s Bare Necessities’ which will be aired during next season. It will feature famous FC faces sharing stories and their favourite music.

Also this week, FCUM Radio legend Rockin’ John Cron has been kind enough to fill the void left by This Club Is My Club by producing a special Dadrock & Dance Extra. Join John every day this week at 11am and 9pm.

On top of all that, we’ve still got your favourite shows playing through the week. Tune in for jazz, funk, folk, indie, electronica, soul, blues and anything else beautiful we can lay our hands on.

Go easy, step light, stay free.

- Freestylin’ With Finton (15:00)

Finton packs an hour with Modern Soul and Hip Hop favourites from across the decades. He also graces the airwaves with his Three to Play What I Want - Any Old Time feature, which is three rather tenuously linked (yet superbly selected) favourites of Finton’s.


- The Cellar Tapes Mod Edition (16:00)

The Shindig Breakfast Show sidekick Ben Hughes stretches his legs with a branch of his highly acclaimed series called ’The Cellar Tapes’. This edition features a variety of Mod treats as well as regular features Continental Corner and The Modfather.


- Hidden Gems with Scott Taylor (17:00)

With his feet rooted within Soul and Motown, tune in to Scott Taylor’s Hidden Gems to hear some rare tracks as well as a Featured Artist and Make Way For The Original.


- The Roost with Stuart James (18:00)

Stuart James features a label each week and highlights his pick of the artists from the featured label. Playing garage blues and fuzz, join Stuart at 6pm.


- Northern Lights (19:00)

So the World Cup is almost upon us and Northern Lights couldn’t let this go by. No album of the week on the show, but we will take you back to Mexico 70, Espania 82, Mexico 86 and Italia 90 instead.

You will hear an ultra rare football related James song, a tribute to the greatest footballer ever (who sadly never played in a WC), a new local World Cup song and a few classics thrown in for good measure. Oh and the show will certainly test you at one point. Listen in at 7pm all week.


- Matt Nickson’s Jazz Selection (20:00)

Matt presents his immense encyclopedic knowledge for Jazz to FCUM Radio, bringing an hour of quality jazzy goodness to your evenings.
