Time to smile! Christmas FM is coming to town

Drum roll please.. because Christmas FM is back tomorrow to bring you thirty days straight of rollicking good cheer for it’s sixteenth year.  We are beside ourselves with excitement the big day is almost here.

We have been live online all month but tomorrow at noon we turn on our FM transmitters – with a little help from  five year old twins from Mullingar who won a competition to get this gig and you will all meet them tomorrow.

Why should you listen? Well because it is fun. And along with  non-stop Christmas classics there are non-stop chances to win prizes with Gifting Garv, Marshmallow Mark and Ruldolph Ryan revving up your brekkie with giveaways from One4All and the secret santa game with Cadbury back again.

Dave Lyons and Mark Noble will be driving you home for Christmas and are among the one hundred volunteers donating their time on air this year.

And while it IS all about loving life equally Christmas FM is about helping those children who need it most in Ireland with our chosen charity partners. 

Where will you be tomorrow at noon?

We hope you will be with  us on the first leg of our journey. Why not send a photo or video to @christmasfm on social media – Insta, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok. 

Make sure to include the hashtag #SwitchChristmasOn and we will print a selection and all celebrate together.

Some important info about us

Christmas FM, which is celebrating its 16th year on air this year, has raised over three million euro for a range of charities since it began broadcasting. This year, Christmas FM will be continuing with their hugely successful ‘Magic of Christmas’ appeal, raising funds for Barnardos, Barretstown, Make-A-Wish Ireland and a range of children’s charities around Ireland making a difference in local communities through Community Foundation Ireland.

Last year, The Magic of Christmas appeal raised almost €300,000 for the charities and the fundraising initiative is hoping to raise over €1,000,000 between 2022 – 2024 for Ireland’s Children’s charities and to maximise the impact of the funds raised by helping more children in need.  

So, by donating to The Magic of Christmas, you will….

Give the Gift of Childhood to those who need it most, because every child deserves Magic at Christmas.

The station is presented on air each year by up to 100 volunteers who devote hundreds of hours of their time assisted by a core management team. Meanwhile, the costs of running Christmas FM are covered by various sponsors, ensuring listener donations go directly to the fundraising initiative. This year the station’s premier FM sponsors are Coca Cola, An Post and Cadbury.

Christmas FM is broadcasting from The Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley who have kindly donated their studio space again this year.

As well as broadcasting online and on FM from November 28th, Christmas FM also has a number of sister stations which are streamed globally, helping to sprinkle Christmas cheer and jolliness right across the world!

  • Christmas FM Classical plays ‘Classical and Carols’. The station brings you the best in Classical Christmas music mixed with a wide range of festive carols
  • Christmas FM Classics plays ‘Classics and Crooners’. It’s a mix of classic, pre-1970s Christmas songs from Bing Crosby to Frank Sinatra
