Sister Rosetta Tharpe: Gospel Blues Train Special

This Friday, 12 October from 8.00pm, The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman will feature the music of gospel legend Sister Rosetta Tharpe to celebrate her long overdue induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. 

Widely recognised as the progenitor of the electric guitar style subsequently used by the likes of Chuck Berry and Keith Richards, the late Sister Rosetta also influenced countless female vocalists in a long and successful career. 

The Gospel Blues Train will be playing as many Tharpe songs as possible – either by the lady herself or via other artists who have covered her songs over the years.

The Gospel Blues Train, Friday 12 October, 8.00-9.00pm; Saturday 13 October, 7.00pm; Tuesday, 16 October, 10.00pm and Catch Up anytime.

TTBA Album of the Month: Paul Carrack

TTBA Album of the Month: Paul Carrack

The Turn The Beat Around producer and presenter Ian Arbuckle has chosen the new CD album from Paul Carrack titled ‘These Days’ as the October Album of the Month.

Paul Carrack has plied his trade with some excellent rock and pop outfits over the years, including successful stints with the likes of Ace, Squeeze and Mike and The Mechanics to name but a few.

The Sheffield born singer, guitarist and keyboards ace is now firmly established as a significant performer in his own right too, and his latest solo set serves up a generous helping of mature and effortlessly melodic pop-soul featuring telling contributions from top notch sidemen such as guitarist Robbie McIntosh, drummer Steve Gadd and legendary saxist, Pee Wee Ellis of James Brown fame.

Turn The Beat Around with Ian Arbuckle, Wednesdays 8.00-10.00pm and Saturdays 3.00-5.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.

12th Anniversary Dinner & Auction success

12th Anniversary Dinner & Auction success

The Revival FM 12th Anniversary Dinner & Auction successfully took place on Friday, 28 September 2018 within the newly refurbished Kirkintilloch Town Hall in Union Street, Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire.

The event was a ‘sell-out’ with over 120 people attending at the rebuilt Kirkintilloch Town Hall which replaced the regular venue, Cumbernauld New Town Hall.

The Kirkintilloch venue was slightly smaller than Cumbernauld, but this made for a cosy and cheerful night, raising much needed funds for Revival FM.

Station director Andrew Polson told everyone from the stage how important the night was, in this, the 12th year of Ofcom licensed full-time broadcasts.  Andrew explained that Revival FM was successful in May 2018 with the award from Ofcom for a new FM broadcasting licence to cover the City of Glasgow.

Revival FM (Glasgow) will launch at Easter 2019 on an FM frequency plus online on all devices to include smart voice speakers.

Friday night’s Dinner & Auction raised £8,870 from this smaller venue.  This fundraising will support the launch of Revival FM and its ministry across Glasgow.

Pictured above on the stage of Kirkintilloch Town Hall is Dave Brackenridge, founder and CEO of Kirkintilloch based Rookie Rock Stars.  Revival FM has partnered with Rookie Rock Stars, a new mental health counselling service for children and young persons.

Dave explains: “This service provides the opportunity for struggling individuals to talk to mental health professionals in an organisation they feel safe with. We have been providing this service on a small scale for a short time now and we are absolutely convinced of the need for it.
Rookie Minds is open to anyone who needs it.  We are able to offer help in various areas inclusive of: bereavement, anxiety and depression, education support, family relationships and bullying.  This project works out of our head office in Kirkintilloch as well as working directly with schools. If you know someone who is in need of help, do not hesitate to get in touch.”
You can email: info@rookierockstars.org.uk or call 0141 404 0057.
  • Revival FM commenced full-time licensed broadcasting on 100.8 FM on 3 September 2006 to  Cumbernauld, Kilsyth, Kirkintilloch, Lenzie, Lennoxtown and surrounding areas of East Dunbartonshire.  Every September, Revival FM celebrates the service to the Christian community with a Dinner & Auction to raise funds for continuing the service in this, the 12th year of 100.8 Revival FM.
