What's in a Gas Tank?

This Week’s News

Good day to you all

Welcome to this week’s FCUM Radio Newsletter and following another victory in the league over the weekend, here at FCUM Radio Towers we are jumping the gun big time and planning for that playoff final. This mainly involves insuring our commentators for any future visits to away grounds where gas tanks feature as a pitch side pieces of furniture, we figure it’s better to be safe than sorry.

In other news, this past week the radio brass took part in some late night meetings in the Derek and Clive Memorial Conference Suite down on the 5th floor, it’s a nice room and it also has a telly which meant we could watch the snooker too, which was nice. During these meetings a brand new schedule was hammered out which will launch on the 31st of January. It will see a number of changes and additions to our line-up which we hope will meet with everyone’s delight. More news on that closer to the time.

And finally, for those that missed it or for those that loved it, The FCUth Nativity which aired over Christmas is now available for download from the radio website at http://www.fcumradio.co.uk/the-fc-uth-nativity-2010/ , so get back into that Christmas spirit by downloading it and cherishing it always.
