Cooking with...


This week FCUM Radio can exclusively reveal the date and venue for this year’s last and only night of the FCUM Radio Summer Proms 2011. The venue will be The Ducie Bridge pub near Victoria Station, the night, Saturday the 27th August 2011. Bands are yet to be confirmed, but rest assured the list of potential acts is splendid. More news to come on this in the coming weeks but consider yourselves notified.

In other news, this week marks a first for FCUM Radio and potentially for radio in general. This past summer a significant percentage of club funds were diverted towards a new project to create a shiny new Shindig Breakfast Show kitchen studio on the 8th floor of FCUM Radio Towers. Obviously this decision had some criticism within the club, but as with all these things, the proof is very much in the pudding, that’s right, a food pun. So tune into The Shindig Breakfast Show at 10am all this week to hear the first ever Cooking with Chef Marv.

Finally we are still on the look out for budding story and script writers for FCUM Radio in the new season; you can be a writer of comedy, drama, romance even sci-fi (yes we’ll even do that) for a series of radio plays to be broadcast during the new season. Likewise if you are a member of an Amateur Dramatics society, we’ll be just as keen to hear from you as well at station@fcumradio.co.uk. And while I’m at it, you are just an email away from anyone here at FCUM Radio, so why not request a song. All of our DJs can be contacted via email and love reading what you have to say. So help yourselves, http://www.fcumradio.co.uk/djsshows/the-voices/
And one more thing, a big heartfelt congratulations to our dear friends at Radio WDON and everyone else connected to AFC Wimbledon, it was quite an afternoon’s listen on Saturday but we were dead chufted with the result, onwards and upwards.

* FC LIVE Replay! – A re-run of a classic match from a memorable season (Wed 7pm & Sat 3pm)
