We’re back on air on the 9th October
With show proposals swamping the studio and scheduling in full swing the Fuse team are eagerly awaiting getting back on the airwaves 9th October when we’ll be broadcasting for ten weeks.
We’re going to be training all week, so if you’ve been lucky enough to bag yourself a show prepare to be amazed.
Fuse has partnered with Revolution Fallowfield to bring you FUSE PRESENTS once a month. If you’re a member of Fuse (membership is only a fiver) you can get yourself discount and cheap drinks at the popular student bar any time you fancy some good food or a cheeky cocktail.
Fuse FM is more than just a radio station. Did you know Fuse has its very own club night?
Each month we’ll be putting on our very own Fuse DJs who will be bringing you the best of the music you love.
“Fuse has an incredible wealth of untapped DJ talent and Fuse Presents gives them a platform to play their music to a live crowd, whilst giving the students of Manchester a taste of what Fuse has to offer,” said Ryan Charafeddine, Head of Events.
Charafeddine continues: “For the first time we’re bringing you Fuse Presents from Revs and that gives us a blank canvas to do whatever we want which means we can put on a variety of music to appeal to a variety of different people, so no matter what kind of thing you’re into there’s something for everyone. This semester our DJs will be playing you a mixture of hip-hop, commercial tunes as well as some more specialist genres including drum and bass and funk.”
Leanne Fata, former Head of Promotions set up Fuse Presents back in March: “Doing all the the on air stuff is so much fun but what we really wanted was to have a means to be more interactive between members and listeners as well as show case Fuse FM talent. What better way to combine all this by putting on a night whilst getting our name out there.”
Fuse Presents will be held on the second Monday of every month at Revolution Fallowfield. Join us on the 10th October for our start of semester party!
Meet The Committee – Clifford Fleming
Course and year: “Management and Marketing, second year.”
Where are you from?: “Originally I’m from Sussex, in a tiny little town called Arundel. It has a castle and a cathedral and is very English, ha.”
Committee position: “Head of Marketing”
What does your role entail?: “Leading the street team, advertising and generally making people aware of Fuse.”
How can members get involved in your area?: “I’d absolutely love people to get involved! It would look brilliant on your CV and will be loads of fun. Drop me an email [email protected].”
I love Fuse FM because….: “It’s a brilliant way to gain confidence and as a presenter you have the opportunity to make radio that you’d love to listen to.”
What’s your favourite cheese?: “Cathedral City Cheddar or Red Leicester – I can’t stand cream cheese, it makes me feel ill.”
A band we should all be keeping our eyes on: “Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – if you like that sort of Indie, Electro stuff. I adore them, but they don’t have a proper, full album out yet only EPs.”
Favourite radio station (apart from Fuse): “BBC 6music.”
Most hated radio presenter and why: “Vernon Kay – he irritates me A LOT and chats too much, plays too little music and the stuff he talks about is so dull and uninteresting.”
One top tip on being ‘good’ at radio: “Play more music than you talk – even if you have a talk show. People listen to radio for music and it can sound quite dry with long periods of speaking.”
If you could be a celebrity for a day who would you be: Without a doubt – Lady Gaga.
Your earliest Fuse memory: Going on a virtual safari through Africa with my co-host Ingrid and pretending to run away from an Elephant on my first show.
Have you ever had a show on Fuse FM – how did you feel it went?: I’ve had two shows: Around The World in Eight Hours – a travel show and What Would Einstein Do? – a show about the quirky-side of science.
Favourite place on campus to sleep: I’ve been a good boy and not fallen asleep in a lecture yet. Thankfully.
The last gig you went to in Manchester: Explosions In The Sky at The Academy. They were really good and I’m glad my co-host dragged me along.
