Christmas FM 2012 is here
It’s that time of year again… Christmas FM, the hugely popular Christmas music themed radio station which raises thousands of euros for charity every year is returning for another run this year – and this year they’re covering more of the country than ever before!
New Culch.ie writer Niall O’Keeffe (that’s me!) will be presenting on the station (starting tonight!), which is based in the O’Callaghan Alexander Hotel in Dublin city centre and can be heard on FM in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway, Kildare and the South-East region as well as online via the web site & smartphone apps.
This year, it’s sponsored by the EBS and Clothing.ie and will feature over 60 radio stars who are once again giving their time for free in order to help out a great cause – ISPCC Childline.
Those presenting shows include old favourites such as Mike Moloney and Gerry Wilson, Keith Shanley and Garvan Rigby on Breakfast, Drive Time with Chris Murray and Hugh Brown, and The Saturday Night Christmas Party with me! (I get to play all the up-beat stuff!). There’s also a Christmas Song competition and various giveaways and “OB”s to come.
I’ll actually be on tonight (Friday night, Dec 7th) from 7 to 10pm… so tune in on 94.3 in Dublin City, 106.7 in Cork City, 105.5 in Limerick City, 89.5 in Galway City, 88.1 in Kildare/Dublin commuter belt and 103.8 in the South-East or online at christmasfm.ie
You can also make requests by sending your message to the station via the web site (if outside Ireland) or by texting the word “XMAS” followed by a space and your message to 57003 (if inside Ireland). Texts cost €1 and proceeds go to Childline. Enjoy!
