In August 2012, a young man by the name of Gary Drinkwater approached us in the hope that he could host his own show on the station. We, being organised that week, replied to Gary’s email. And before you knew it, Gary was hosting his own weekly Indie music show right here on FCUM Radio.
Regular listeners to Gary’s A Face For Radio show on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon over the last year, will be all too aware of the host’s talents. A very charming and engaging presenter, Gary, in addition to his show on FCUM Radio, went on to host a sister show on Salford City Radio as well. And this past week, Gary received some amazing news.
We are delighted to announce that his application to become an apprentice on Wolverhampton’s KIC FM has been accepted.
We at FCUM Radio are absolutely over the moon for Gary. This news points to what we as a station and as a club can achieve when we have our own base in Moston. Together with the club, it’s community team and our existing volunteers, FCUM Radio can become a place for enthusiasts to build experience and hone their skills.
On behalf of everyone here at FCUM Radio, we would like to wish Gary all the best at his new placement, and express our thanks for the time spent with us. We know mate that you’re going to make it.
