and welcome to our site. Ferry FM commenced its third year of broadcasting
to cover the 30th Portaferry
Gala on Saturday July 19th 1998. The station was set up in 1995 by Galax Broadcast
Services of Cloghy to enable the organizers to fully publicize each of
the Gala's exciting events, many of which, are given live coverage on the
station. Sadly, due to the withdrawal of two of the stations major sponsors,
Ferry FM did not broadcast during the 1999 Gala, however the Gala Float
Pages are updated as usual - thanks to Kevin Byres. We do hope the station will be on-air, in some form or another, for the Gala in July 2000.
Ferry FM is self financing and run
by professional broadcasters, who along with a wealth of local talent,
produce each day of the stations week long programming output, which culminates
in live coverage of the town's annual float parade.
Broadcasting 9am - 12 midnight, from
the town square, Ferry FM sticks to it's promise of "Gala news and Great
music": from traditional sessions in a local pub, to the Sports Day in
the town's football field, listeners can hear it all on 105.8 FM, along
with a mix of Pop, Rock & Country classics plus the best music of today.
