FCUM Radio - Happy Birthday

This Week’s News

Good day to you all.

Welcome to this week’s FCUM Radio Newsletter, and today marks our one year birthday as a FC and Music radio station.

As part of the celebrations we’ve given our schedule a little Spring clean. There are a few noticeable changes; these include The Shindig Breakfast which now starts an hour earlier at 10am and The Gig Guide which has now moved to the mornings. The Show With No Name now airs everyday with an extra hour at 4pm followed at 6pm by The Community Guide.

For your favourite music shows there has been some changes also, FCUM Soul Night remains firmly in place on a Thursday, but has now been enhanced with the addition of Freestyling With Finton, joining Hidden Gems and Soul Unsigned. Catch Up Sunday remains the day of the week to hear your shows again, while the nights of Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and all day Saturdays remain must listens.

Two things remain the same though, our commitment to FC United of Manchester and bringing to you the best in music and community this fair city has to offer.

Highlights of this week include:

* FC LIVE! - Join the lads from 7pm Wednesday for full build-up and then full match commentary from Gigg Lane for FC United verses Colwyn Bay
* FC LIVE! – Tune in on Saturday at 2pm for FC United of Manchester’s visit to Hucknall Town for full match coverage.
