GoFundMe page set up to help buy equipment for the radio station

Your contribution will pay for new equipment for Dundalk’s community radio studio and on location broadcasting service.

The equipment list is

two digital sounds desks – one for the main studio and one for the production studio
5 x sound processing and studio PC’s
6 x Mic Arms
a studio digital link for outside broadcasts
a portable outside broadcast sound desk
two OB headsets
a studio clock

In October we secured 75% funding from Louth Leader Partnership and to purchase this amazing equipment we need to raise €5,681.00 on our own and hope to achieve this before December 31st 2018.

Having brand new studio equipment will be a wonderful way to begin our 10-year licence in 2019.

One out of every 250 people in Dundalk have been part of making radio since we started in 2002. This is a great opportunity for us to invest in for the next 15 years.

It will be of enormous benefit for our community radio volunteers of all ages and especially for
live match commentaries
OB’s from community halls and events
studio panel discussions
providing certified radio training courses and summer camps
recording radio documentaries and radio dramas

In addition to continuing the wonderful rage of programming you hear the new studio equipment will bring Dundalk’s non-profit public service station up to national broadcast standard.

Thank you for helping along the way.

Dundalk Lion’s Club Mobile Phone Appeal

On Thursday 2nd April 2015 the Dundalk Lion’s in association with Dundalk FM ran a coffee morning. We received 120 mobile phones and some people left in a donation. Thanks to the Home Bakery for the fantastic buns and cakes, we would also like to thank Marion and all the staff of the Community Offices, for keeping us supplied with coffee and tea. If you still would like to donate your old mobile phones to this great cause, you can leave them into Dundalk FM studio.

Blackrock Fix It Factory

Blackrock Fix It 2015

Blackrock Tidy Towns in association with the Louth County Council organised a Fix It Factory at the Community Centre on Saturday 21st March 2015.

As Larry Magnier describes in this interview with Padraig Quigley, the idea is to get people to think about recycling or ‘upcycling’ as he describes  it.

There were experts on hand to have a look at  furniture, musical instruments electronic and small electrical equipment, bicycles, jewellery, clothing and shoes as can be seen in our collage.

Bridgestone and McManus Tyres were also there to check your tyres and give you a written report.

There was free tea and coffee and fun activities for the children.
