If you can't hear those sleigh bells jingling and ring-ting-a-ling-gling just yet then brace yourselves: Christmas FM is coming!

The hugely popular vounteer-led radio station got the go ahead from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland for another year and it'll be live, both online and on radio, from Saturday December 29th.

Festive tunes will jingling in your ears via the wireless (that's an old term for radio by the by) if you live in Dublin City and County; Limerick City and part-County; Cork City and part-County; Galway City; and parts of Counties Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny and Tipperary. Here's a full list of the frequencies you'll need to tune in on.

The Christmas classics will be pumping through the wi-fi too though: You can stream the station online nationwide and in any other country around the world right here. As if that wasn't enough, you can also download the Christmas FM app via the website too.

Every year Christmas FM picks a different charity to raise funds for and this year they've decided to get behind Age Action Ireland. The charity promotes positive ageing and better policies and services for older people, in the hopes of making Ireland a better place to grow old in.

They're also running a competition to find the best new Christmas song, so if you think you've got what it takes to write one then you'd better get on with it. Entries close on December 7th and you can find all the details you need right here.
