Hacked Site….Now Safe

I know that many of you noticed that we had a little problem with our website over the past week or so. We were hacked and someone managed to inject some malware into the core files of our site. It couldn’t have happened at a worse time – right at the beginning of the school holiday when our web team were away. Unfortunately this meant that it took a little longer than we would have liked to get it sorted. The good news is that it is now fixed and normal service has resumed.

This was an automated attack aimed at our website software so we were very surprised when someone tried to claim responsibility! Not really too sure how to respond to that!

New Presenters

Since our last update Davie Martin has established his Sunday Session and is now followed by Norrie Innes’ Sunday Long Lie. Gladys Chucklebutty got the kids going on Saturday and then handed over to Callum Wilson for his Saturday Lunchbox. Welcome to you all. I know we’ve heard lots of great things about your first broadcasts and we’re sure there’s much more to come!

Events Calendar

We are happy to help advertise community events both on our website and on air. We know there’s a lot going on, especially as we head towards the Christmas period (yes, already!). So if you want your event advertised, Don’t Delay – Tell Us Today!! All you have to do is drop us a line using our Contact Form and we’ll start plugging your event as quickly as possible. We’ll even do it for free but would really appreciate a link back from your website – if you have one.

Interested in Getting Involved?

Running a Radio Station demands a wide variety of skills from a range of different people. If you think you’ve got something to offer – we might be able to use your expertise. We need people to help with Administration, Marketing, Social Networking, Research and lots, lots more. We even have space for a presenter or two as well. So if you want to get involved – get in touch.

East Lothian FMNew Beginnings

East Lothian FM started broadcasting at 7am Monday 10th October 2011. Andy Morris got the show rolling and Breakfast With Mo launched our Station. Andy was followed by Iain G and our first Regal performance from The Duke. John Leith’s Music Machine rounded off our current weekday schedule but not the music. Davie Martin popped in to give a couple of bonus shows and a preview of what to expect from him on Sunday. Of course, we can’t forget Graeme Logan‘s first of many shows in his new slot every Thursday Brunch.

Davie will be back with us this Sunday and then a slight change on Monday when Breakfast With Mo will start at 8 instead of 7am.

We’ve added Presenter Profiles to the website (Click the names above) and got stuck in to our Chatroom. Anyone wanting to join in can Register Here and Login with the password they will be sent. Most of our presenters will be hanging out there during the day so it’s a great place for a bit of banter and a request or two.

The New doesn’t stop there though, next Saturday (22nd October) will bring us Gladys Chucklebutty’s first show – my kids are looking forward to this already!

Get In Touch

Chat with the Community is what we’re all about. You can phone our presenters direct on 01620 822 888 or pop into the Studio at 38 Market Street, Haddington. You can also use our Contact Form to get in touch with either the Studio, Admin Staff or the Website Team or you can email the Studio: studio@radiosaltire.org.

If you are interested in presenting or getting involved behind the scenes, get in touch and tell us a little about yourself.

Thank You

None of this would be worthwhile without an audience to broadcast to. The response we’ve had from our listeners has been truly fantastic – not only here in East Lothian but from all over the world. It’s amazing how fast news travels and how keen people have been to show their support. Thank You! It really wouldn’t be worth it without you.

More To Come

There will be a number of announcements over the coming weeks. We’re speaking to potential new presenters and people with ideas they’d like to share. We’ll be adding to our Schedule and bringing you news of what we’ve got up our sleeves. Keep and eye on our Facebook Page, Twitter and our News Section. You can also pop your email address into the box on the left to be sent an email when we add to our site.

New Addition To The Community

Finally, a more personal message. John’s daughter Rachel gave birth yesterday and I’ve not had a chance to congratulate them yet. What a week John. I’m not quite sure how you got through it! Congratulations to you and the family. I’m sure you’re over the moon! Don’t forget we still need a profile from you though. I’m sure you’ll squeeze it in somewhere!!

Thanks to all involved in last nights fundraiser in East Saltoun. If you were there, I’m sure you’ll agree it was a fantastic band and a spot on venue for our first event.

The real thanks have to go to the dancers though. I think everyone was determined to have a good time and that created a real party atmosphere. Brilliant!!

Here’s some pictures:
