FCUM Radio is delighted to announce the line-up for this year’s FCUM Radio Summer Proms, the almost annual fundraising event for the station run and owned by its volunteers and the members of FC United.
This year FCUM Radio are working with the brilliant people at Manchester’s Ruby Lounge to put on a night to remember, this August, Wednesday the 6th.
The aim of the night is simple, FC United are moving to North Manchester, and FCUM Radio wants to move there too. But to do this, FCUM Radio need to raise as much money as they can over the summer to make this dream a reality.
So who have FCUM Radio managed to nab for this year’s extravaganza?
