Christmas FM.

Landing on our airwaves again and coming in with the snow, Christmas FM has finally arrived.

One can only really get a sense of Christmas when you hear the jingling of the familiar beats in your ear, and Christmas FM has ensured year after year that the season is rung in loud and clear, and this year was no exception.

The exclusive Christmas station of the year is a voluntary based project which aims to raise as much money as possible for a charity of their choice.  This year they have teamed up with Barnardos Children’s Charity to raise both money and awareness for those children who will not have such a happy Christmas.

With everyone within the station donating their time to play their part, the radio show is constantly giving out a feel good factor.

One of the well known features of the station is its annual song contest, which gives Irish song writers and singers a chance to voice their Christmas tunes.  This year saw over 100 entries being sent into the show.  They have now got 4 songs which have made it to the grand final – Garrett Wall with his song “How Christmas was meant to be”, the Allstars, with their song “Over the Rooftops”, the Best Men with their song “This is Christmas to me”, and finally Snow Business with their song “Christmas Time”.

The overall winner of the contest will be given the opportunity to professionally record the song, receive €500 in vouchers and will be on Christmas FM’s playlist for the duration of broadcast. The winning entry will also be released online as a charity Christmas single with all proceeds being donated to Barnardos.

The final is decided by the public with them voting via text message into the show for their favourite song.  Text messages into the station cost €1 with all of the money going directly to Barnardos.  You can also text in personal messages to be read out on air for the same price, and for those wishing to give a little more to Barnardos, they can do so through the Christmas FM website at  All the final songs are also available to listen to online.

Christmas FM is broadcasting nationwide on the following frequencies…Dublin – 89.9 | Limerick -105.5 | Cork -106.7 | Galway -89.5 | South East -103.8
