Come and see Sydney Devine in a special show on Friday 11 May at the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock.
Irvine Beat FM Ceilidh presenter, Jim Higgins, was chatting to his good friend Sydney Devine, and Sydney asked how the station funds itself.
Jim explained that Irvine Beat FM is a registered charity. All of our presenters are volunteers who give up their time for free. Your favourite local radio station only survives with adverts, grants, donations and a lot of goodwill.
A few weeks later, Sydney approached Jim and said that he was going back on tour this year. He said that he would like to put on an extra show and donate his fee to Irvine Beat FM.
As you can imagine, Jim, and everyone here at Irvine Beat FM were over the moon with this very kind offer to the station.
Plans were put in place to find a venue for the concert, and the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock was chosen.
So, Friday the 11th of May is the date for your diary. Come along and join your favourite Irvine Beat FM presenters for a great night and help to raise funds to keep your favourite local radio station going.
Friday 11 May at 7pm, at the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock. (9 Green Street, Kilmarnock KA1 3BN)
