Philippa Hanna ‘The Voyage UK Tour’ at Burnside

Philippa Hanna is coming to Glasgow on Saturday 7 May at the Burnside Building of the Burnside-Blairbeth Church, 2 Church Avenue, Rutherglen, Glasgow G73 5BX.  Tickets from just £10 here.

Philippa is an acclaimed British singer-songwriter who will be based in the USA from the summer of 2016.

She recorded in Nashville her forthcoming fourth album ‘Speed Of Light’ which tackles the challenges of life head-on, offering listeners a message of hope in the face of adversity. Since her 2007 debut, Philippa has released three studio albums, an EP and a live DVD, and published two autobiographical books. Her intimate and honest approach to performing has seen her become an in-demand opening artist, touring with international acts like Lionel Richie, Leona Lewis, Wet Wet Wet and Collabro.Phillipa Hanna1

Philippa’s music has been heard on BBC radio and television and Christian radio stations across the world including 100.8 Revival FM in central Scotland.

The recent single Even Now topped the iTunes Christian & Gospel Chart on it’s release. Born into a musical family, Philippa knew from an early age that that making music was all she wanted to do.

Her music frequently draws upon her experiences of a turbulent youth, and the Christian faith she found in 2004. She aims to offer a positive message for fans: Songs like I Am Amazing and Raggedy Doll have seen Philippa champion self-esteem in young people, and she also works as an advocate for children’s charity Compassion International.

Make sure to see and hear Philippa Hanna in association with Revival FM at Burnside-Blairbeth Church Hall, 2 Church Avenue, Burnside, Rutherglen, Glasgow G73 5BX on Saturday 7 May 2016 at 7.30pm. Get your tickets here now!

Regulator Ofcom awards Revival licence extension

Regulator Ofcom awards Revival licence extension

UK broadcasting and telecoms regulator Ofcom (Office of Communications) has awarded Revival Radio Limited, trading as Revival FM, an extension to its broadcasting licence to transmit on 100.8 MHz FM to Cumbernauld and most of North Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire.

The existing Ofcom Community Radio licence issued to Revival FM to broadcast on 100.8 FM was set to expire in September 2016, on the anniversary of the original launch date, 3 September 2006.

The Revival Radio board a month ago submitted an application to Ofcom to extend the licence for another five years until September 2021.

Revival Radio director Iain Preston says: “I am pleased to let you know that on 22 April, we received communication from Ofcom indicating that the application has been approved and that accordingly the licence has been granted for the next five years to transmit on 100.8 FM.

We are pleased that the regulatory body has looked on our application favourably and so we would like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work and input over the last few months, and indeed years to make Revival FM what it is today.

Whilst we recognise that there will be challenging times ahead for the organisation across practical and financial areas we are appreciative of the Ofcom decision which of course gives us the legal remit to continue to operate and acknowledges the excellent programme and community service provided by Revival FM.  We continue to thank God for His continued guidance and direction in these matters.”
