Dunoon Community Radio Presenters RCDJ TRISH and DJ DAVIE try on their Rock ‘n Roll wigs in readiness for next Saturday
Yes Every one it is that time of year again and the Tutti Frutti Tour is about to Roll into town once again and to celebrate DCR97.4fm presenters will be reminding you about this wonderful cause and playing a lot of Rock n’ Roll.
After the success of last years fantastic 60s theme Tutti Frutti Tour this year the cast of over 20 dancers will present a 1950s Juke Joint on the back of a lorry, donated by Cairndow’s Inverdell LTD,
Dressed in 50s outfits the troupe will remind folk of a certain age and introduce the rest to those wonderful sounds and dance moves of a period known the world over as the Golden Age Of Rock n‘ Roll. Last year the Tutti Frutti Tour raised over £5000 for the charity CHAS and this year the expectations are for a higher amount. The two hour show will start off for the first of three shows at noon at Loch Lomond Shores then rock and Roll on to Dunoon’s Argyll Gardens for 4.00pm where the folk of Dunoon will be treated to the Golden Age of Rock n’ Roll and then to Strachur’s Clachan Brea to do it all again. At each of the three Roadshows volunteers will be asking you to donate change into the collection tins to help Robins House children’s hospice in Balloch which is run by the Childrens Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS).
There is also a wonderful Raffle with fantastic prizes including a Champagne lunch and Sea plane flight, Dinner bed and breakfast at one of the poshest hotels in Scotland ,cash and lots more, there is even a signed Tutti Frutti Tour Poster signed by no other than Rock Legend Alvin Stardust who was most impressed when he got to meet a few of the dance troupe at his recent visit to the Legends Window in the Marshall’s Furniture Store below the Argyll Business Centre the home of DCR97.4.
