AdvertisingHave you had enough of the usual types of advertising? Why not advertise with Alive … we can help you get YOUR message to your customers in our region. Due to a recent change in legislation, your charitable community radio station here in Dumfries, Alive 107.3fm, is now providing ‘on air’ advertising.

We offer Show Sponsorship, which allows your name and message to be associated with a particular show, and also offer the more traditional advert drops into our programming throughout the day. The third option is ‘infomercial’; a more in-depth way to promote a new product launch or a special event.

If you would like to talk to us about advertising, just email [email protected], or call Mark Smith directly on 07710 111727.

Advertising with us means you’re helping support this valuable community radio initiative in our region – thank you!

In it’s place we have 3 hours of great dance anthems as Kev Woods brings you “Ultimate Floor Fillers”.

We apologise for this change, but hope to bring “Allive & Kicking” back to the schedule next week.Andy-Mitchell-Show-Page

Today on Alive 107.3FM Drivetime saw the end of an era with the sad departure of one of the station’s most loved presenters Tony Charlesworth a.k.a Top Cat, who has sadly moved onto new things. Whilst Top Cat promised to remain involved in the station before saying a fond farewell to all of his listeners, having done Friday Drivetime for two years, he will do so in a guest capacity.

All of us at Alive 107.3FM would however like to wish Top Cat all the best for the future, and hope that he will indeed remain involved. He will be sadly missed by all the team and his listeners alike, but don’t worry – if you missed his final show then you can Listen Again here.

Whilst it is still to be confirmed, we are hoping to continue Friday Drivetime with the same team as present, only without Top Cat as the frontman, watch this space for more information.
