No Ordinary Weekend

Hi Everyone. every Friday, as always, I look forward to closing out the week, and saying Welcome to the Weekend. This time, it’s not just any ordinary Weekend, certainly in Ireland, where I broadcast from. This is a 3 day weekend. Yes, an extra day off work. It won’t be a Blue Monday, it will be a Happy Monday.

The fun kicks off at 7 PM in Ireland and the UK, that’s 2 PM Eastern, when your weekend will officially begin. Two hours of feel good quality music, along with plenty of friendly banter to wipe away the busy week that was, and give you a pep in your step for the weekend.

All your regular features will be here such as:
• Kick-Start. This opening track is the pace setter for the weekend. To open we turn back to the 90s, and hear a track released in 1994 and re-released in 1995.
• 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. A group very popular in the 1980s were The Human League, who are our featured artist.
• The Irish Connection. Exactly 1 hour later I play two tracks by two different Irish artists. We’ll hear from a band from Cork, as well as a band of siblings from the East Coast of Ireland, one of which celebrates his birthday today.
• 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 initially recorded in 1957, and given a rocky treatment in 1978.

There is always 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:
