Alive gives you key access to the night’s news as it happens, direct from the count in Easterbrook Hall.
There will be regular interviews and opinion as the count progresses, right here on aliveradio.net. Then Lee Medd live in the studio for a special Lee Medd Live Breakfast on Friday morning, from 5am.
We bring you the best local coverage of our two constituencies – Dumfries & Galloway, and Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale & Tweedale. #dumfriescount
Due to circumstances outwith our control, “Alive & Kicking” will not air this afternoon as originally scheduled.
In it’s place we have 3 hours of great dance anthems as Kev Woods brings you “Ultimate Floor Fillers”.
Well known local businessman and charity fundraiser, Michael Pattie, came into the studio, on Mark Smith’s Drivetime show today. Michael explained his incredible journey with the first ever BBC People’s Strictly series which culminated with a televised competion for the trophy, with the results announced on Red Nose Day.
If you missed our live interview, it’s available here as a podcast:
Mark Smith is delighted to be welcoming local fundraiser and national Peoples Strictly contestant, Michael Pattie to the Alive 107.3fm studios tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday 18th March), during his Drivetime show. Tune in on 107.3fm around Dumfries, online here, or through online digital apps and players.
Michael will be in just after 5pm, so don’t miss him talking about the experience of a lifetime during the past few weeks, and his ongoing passion to raise funds for Meningitis Research in memory of his son, David.
We regret that the above programmes will not be broadcast on Sunday 14th April 2013 due to illness.
We hope that David Baird will be back on air as normal next Sunday
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.
Unfortunately due to technical difficulties with our equipment which handles internet streaming and Listen Again we are currently streaming at a lower quality than usual. We are working to restore normal service as soon as possible.
Alive 107.3FM would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and assure you that we are working to resolve the problems as soon as possible.
Over the next week we are upgrading our Internet Streaming services to ensure that we continue to provide you with the best possible service, as well as to ensure that we can maintain a high reliability on all of our services. These changes will likely not affect you at all, if you use third party mobile applications they will automatically update, as will our website – though if you use our Media Player links you will need to generate a new file by clicking for any one of the players.
We hope to keep any downtime to a minimum in order to ensure that you are still able to listen to Alive 107.3FM, your local Community Radio Station, however there may be short periods of downtime. If you find any issues please let us know by e-mail to [email protected] or by filling out our Report A Problem form.
We would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this maintenance is essential to ensure that we continue to provide a good and reliable service. If you become aware of any Radio Applications which stop working please e-mail us so that we can look into the problem and, where possible, rectify it.
We regret the station is currently off air and offline due to a blown fuse at our Headquarters.
We went off air during Deep Fried Soul ( or should we call it Deep Fried Fuses!)
We are doing everything we can to get back on air as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience
