.....The Groundwork For The Season Continues

Welcome and News

Safe to say it has been a very very busy week here at FCUM Radio Towers this week.

Work has now begun on a brand new FC Youth show for the new season and we have now completed the first full edit of an episode of The Bare Necessities, a show which many an FCer will find an interesting listen in the coming season I’m sure.

We’ve also received our first recording of another new show called The Bonus Round, a tremendous show which gamers and IT persons alike amongst the FC faithful will absolutely love in the new season, its properly like FC does Gamesmaster but on the radio.

If all that was not exciting enough, this week we’ve had the full line-up for the third night of the Summer Proms for later this month confirmed, more news on that on this week’s radio. And last but not least for this week, we’ve now finalised plans for the new look FCUM Radio coming in August......It’s seriously all been happening!

As this is an exciting time to be a part of the FCUM Radio, its important to reiterate that we are still on the look out for volunteers, so if you want to join the team, please do get in touch with your ideas and enthusiasm at station@fcumradio.co.uk

- Dadrock & Dance with Rockin’ John Cron (11:00)

Following regular slots on Radio Caroline and manchesterismusic.co.uk, FCUM Radio now host Rockin’ John Cron’. RJC will be playing classic rock n roll and plenty of foot tapping favourites. Join John for two tracks of the same name - different song.

- The Michael Ward Hour (14:00)

- 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.
