Regulator gives Revival green light for new FM transmission site

Regulator gives Revival green light for new FM transmission site

Revival FM has received permission from broadcasting regulator Ofcom to use a new FM transmission site and clearance to continue using 100.8 MHz FM for the Revival programme service.

It is the intention to start transmissions from the new site on the Kilsyth Hills towards the end of September.

Since 11 July, Revival, transmitting on 100.8 FM has had a reduced coverage area as the height of the transmit antenna is not as high as the former rooftop location provided atop Stuart House residential tower block near to Cumbernauld town centre. 

Revival FM had to remove the FM transmitting equipment from Stuart House following a related vandalism incident at the almost vacant 19-storey block which is scheduled to be demolished by the end of 2016.  Revival has been transmitting on 100.8 FM from Stuart House since September 2006.

A temporary arrangement is in place for 100.8 FM transmission, but as the aerial height is not very high, the indoor and outdoor in-car reception area has been reduced significantly.  Revival has received approval from regulator Ofcom for these FM transmissions.

Revival FM director and an original founder Bill Anderson from Kilsyth said: “This is great news from Ofcom and we can now plan and get the replacement FM transmitter site ready for use, although it is another costly expenditure for the charity and ministry that is Revival Radio.”

Eric Bibb: special guest of The Gospel Blues Train

Eric Bibb: special guest of The Gospel Blues Train

On Friday 12 August at 8.00pm on Revival,  The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman features an exclusive interview with American blues singer and guitarist Eric Bibb.  The chat took place before his appearance at Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall during his recent UK tour. 

Considered by many as the leading light in acoustic blues music, Eric is the son of late singer and actor Leon Bibb and counted legendary spirituals singer, actor and civil rights activist Paul Robeson as his godfather.

Over a long and varied career, Eric has forged a niche for himself as a world travelling purveyor of upbeat gospel-tinged blues.

He has been the collaborator of choice for artists such as the Blind Boys Of Alabama, Jean Jacques Milteau, Ruthie Foster and Taj Mahal whilst racking up a substantial back catalogue of albums that always hit the mark in terms of portraying the man’s positive outlook on life as well as communicating a passion for social justice and a determination to honour his musical forefathers.

The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman, Friday 12 August at 8.00-9.00pm repeated Saturday 13 August at 7.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.
