Welcome and News

........ I love the smell of Proms in the evening.....

For what looks like the last Summer Proms event of the Summer, join us at Retro Bar this Wednesday to be witness to Americana, Garage and down right dirty Blues from The DN5 (myspace.com/thedn5), Hard Luck Child (myspace.com/hardluckblues) and Euchrid Eucrow (myspace.com/euchrideucrowband). We’re lifting the lid off the barrel of joyousness, guitar riffs and fundraising so please do join us and be a part of this very special event. We’re just shy of £600 for the Development Fund so far and what an achievement it would be if we could take it up to a grand on Wednesday.

So come down, bring all your friends and colleagues and join in with all the bluesy goodness.

PS - Apologies if you’ve had to listen to a repeating message telling you that you’re listening to FCUM Radio! The good news is that we’ve replaced it with lots of scrumptious music in the return of the FCUM Radio Jukebox.

Back with their critically acclaimed shed-based show, Swampy & Pace are here with insight, interviews and current events. Will they make it out of the dungeon this week?
