Christmas FM is back on the airwaves at 8am tomorrow morning

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas….

IT REALLY IS the most wonderful time of the year, because from tomorrow Christmas FM will be back on the radio.

The annual festive broadcasts will be coming live this year from the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, and will be bringing Christmas songs and cheer to the whole of Ireland.

This is Christmas FM’s sixth year on the air, and this time round it will be raising funds and awareness for the charity Aware, which proves support, information and education services to those with depression, and their families

€2 will be donated to Aware for every text received by the station.

Walter Hegarty, who’s the co-founder of Christmas FM (and Rudolph’s minder) said:

Since we began broadcasting five years ago, we have raised in excess of €500,000 for charity, which is a wonderful achievement for everyone involved in the initiative. We look forward to receiving texts and Christmas song requests from our loyal listeners.

Christmas FM is once again holding a Christmas song contest. Submissions are being accepted from today, with the closing date on 6 December.
