As is well, we'll be back the last day in November. Is the App still acting up? Only saw those posts now.

The Classic Christmas FM stream has been skipping for the last three months! Would love it to be fixed Ronan. Thank you.

Thanks all, turns out we weren't aware about the stream skipping until you guys brought it up so as always its hugely appreciated. We are going to be building the racks for the studio this week (I know its only September! But its Technically Next month we are live) and servers in the coming week as part of the studio set up. Once this is done the skipping should be resolved. Unfortunately this does mean down time and we're not sure how long it will be, but may be a few hours or a full day.

Was listening to it this morning in bed, I'm Christmas mad, but inspired my husband to say "wouldn't it be nice if we skipped the next few months and it was Christmas". I couldn't have agreed more 😄

So ChristmasFM have today announced today in their Facebook page that their charity partner is Make A Wish.

https://www.facebook.com/christmasfm...53409213816387

What a fantastic charity to support. They work they do and the joy they bring to people's lives is fantastic. I can't wait to donate.

Turning on Christmas FM is a huge highlight for me every year. It is also so, so sweet since I have moved away to feel connected with Ireland when it is switched on and I can listen online, even through the phone app as I wander around town here.

Just spotted on the ChristmasFM Facebook page their expected launch date is 28/29th of November.

Can't wait. It's a shame they couldn't launch on the 27th the same day as the Toy Show (purely a greedy measure on my behalf as I wanted to have it playing in the background as I decorate the house haha) but as they have a temporary licence and need a few days to test frequencies and the like it's completely understandable.

Can't wait to have it back!

Question for Darragh, would ChristmasFM consider doing podcasts on the run up to the launch date?

Could have a sit down with people from make a wish, ask the general public Christmas questions, attend the Christmas events that are happening like the turning on the Christmas lights.

Mix in a few Christmas tunes and you've got yourself a nice little podcast that can be used to drive traffic to the website and details on how to donate and launch and frequency details.

Excellent idea. Even just one podcast would get people excited and help any new volunteers get used to things.

Hi All,

Not long now, I'm really excited about make a wish being our partner this year. It opens the scope for lots of making wishes come true and sure that's what Christmas is all about. Anyone that has idea's let me know, I think we can get a great community events around this partner.

I've an invite for anyone that's interested. Make a Wish are hosting a table quiz and for those that are fan's we'd love you to be there. I should be able arrange a quick visit to the studio for anyone that's interested, and I'd love to meet up with the folks here who have supported us over the years.


Ballsbridge Hotel Christmas Table Quiz

In conjunction with Christmas FM, the management at Ballsbridge Hotel would like to invite you to join them for a charity pub quiz this Christmas Season in aid of Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The event will take place on Tuesday 1st December at 6pm in The Dubliner Pub, with complimentary food & drinks. Christmas FM will MC and provide entertainment on the evening which is set kick start our party season all for a good cause.

Christmas jumpers are optional but there are fantastic prizes to be won so be creative with your attire!!!!

To enter, please book your table by 2nd November with Maria Chesser; mchesser@ballsbridgehotel.com or call 01 637 9324.

@Loughc I like the idea of the Podcast. I know I'll be able to convince Rachel from Make A Wish to get involved too, If you and others here would volunteer to help prepare or produce, I'm happy to present and record. Not sure how many podcast listeners we'll get but sure nothing ventured nothing gained.

Hi Ronan. I'm happy to give pulling together the podcast a go. I'll jot together an outline and mail it to you and we'll see how we can try and take it from there.

With regards the table quiz I have to go I LOVE table quizzes!! How many to a team? And how much?

I notice the table quiz closing date is the 2nd of November is that a typo? Thanks.

Also we need to pull together a boards team!!

I love table quizzes. Great idea. Im useless at them though, but my husband is a table quiz genius so I just pretend that I've helped.
