Make us an offer... Needs to be more than the entire season of donations to Temple Street asking for it.

Try Christmas FM Classical, might be more your bag.

Why do we play patsy and Elmo, because its awesome and kids love it.

We get asked for hard rock Christmas songs on Christmas FM Ireland a lot, its clearly not the style we play. And do hard rockers really listed to Christmas Music?

Initially we didn't have Christmas day live, we got complaints here on Boards.ie and other places (text donations complaining etc) about it. I see that a lot in my life people complaining about things that they themselves wouldn't do but expect others to.

The first year it was just me and Walter that volunteered. To be honest the management didn't even ask the volunteers because Christmas day is so special, its a big ask. However you guys (the listeners) were so generous with donations that it made it worthwhile.

Now days i've a toddler and 15 coming to dinner at my house so I don't think i'll be on air Christmas Day but we have no shortage of volunteers. They do shorter shows, 1 to 2 hours. They are busy shows so the people at the top of the tree then choose based on experience and talent. Christmas Fm really does have the best team.

I love Christmas FM
Especially on a Saturday morning, driving from Kinvara to Kilfenora Via the Burren Perfumery.
I was off sick a few years ago and I had to make that journey frequently with my neck in a brace.
It made the journey more entertaining,as it was foggy and frosty those evenings... really Christmassy.

I've no questions only to say I love Christmas FM

Depends, If you work in Radio and have lots of on air experience then that helps and get in touch for next year.

If you haven't Adrian Nolan teaches a Radio training course and uses our Studio which could be a nice Xmas present to someone. We've picked up some presenters who've done that course.

Never heard of it, maybe they should enter it into our Coca Cola Christmas Fm song competition. That would give it the most Airplay if its good enough.

Sounds like a great and important cause, but for us we will only be focusing in on our Charity Partner Temple Street Hospital this year.
