Welcome to Friday

Hi everyone. After 2 weeks of holidays, I returned to work last Monday. The sound of the Alarm Clock, getting up early and a day at the office were all things I didn’t miss for the previous 2 weeks. Oh boy, I am looking forward to the weekend. On Friday, at 7 PM in Ireland and the UK or 2 PM Eastern, I very much look forward to sharing that Friday feeling with you all, because where ever you are in the world, I will offer you a warm Welcome to the Weekend.

On offer, to rid you from the stress and mayhem of the busy week, will be 2 fun filled hours of feel good music, blended with a large dose of friendly banter for you to enjoy and I’d love it if you could join me for it.

All your regular features will be here such as:
• Kick-Start. This opening track sets the pace for the weekend. This time, we’ll head back to 1986 and hear a track from a lady who I saw live in Dublin town, as part of a band around since the 1960s.
• Double-Take. At the bottom of the first hour, we play two tracks by the one artist along with a little bio on the artist in question. This weekend by request, we hear 2 tracks from Billy Joel. Who got married a few short weeks ago.
• The Irish Connection. Exactly 1 hour later I play two tracks by two different Irish artists. Today we will hear a track from a band who were very popular in the 1970s, along with a track from a gentleman who plays in an outdoor festival tonight, who has taken the world by storm since 2013. Not only are these 2 artists from Ireland, but also from the same town.
• The One That Got Away. This feature is dedicated to a track that is not often heard on the Radio. We’ll hear a track from an album released in January 1980, that gave the Pretenders 3 hit singles. The track we will hear, wasn’t released on Single, but is a hidden treasure.

I always have plenty of room for your requests and banter, and I’d love to hear from you before or during the show if you’d like to get in touch. You can:
