Welcome and News

........ Peel, chop, fry, season and serve up a fresh plate of FCUM Radio.

Tune in this week to FCUM Radio, Radio for FC United of Manchester for another week of great music from your favourite presenters and mine.

More great shows with great tunes for you this week as all of our presenters are back on board, following Michael Ward’s return from the wilderness of paternity leave. He’s back at 2pm every day.

Final plans are now in place and we are racing toward the third in our series of evenings - the FCUM Radio Summer Proms. It’ll be hosted at Retro Bar, Sackville Street, Manchester on 28 July - entry is £3. As with all of the Proms evenings, all proceeds will be donated to the DF and having raised over £500 already, we’d love you all to come down and be a part of what could be the last night of the FCUM Radio Proms, this summer.

So, doors open at 7:30 and there’ll yet again be a heap of opportunities to donate to the Fund. Come down to support the move to Ten Acres and say so long to the Summer Proms for 2010.
