I’m a bad daughter, today was my Mummy’s birthday and I forgot to say hello to her on the radio. So happy birthday Mam. My excuse is that it was quite a busy show today, new music, plus chatting to Moya and Tiane Doan Na Champassak.
Moya is a London based singer songwriter who has a lot of radio success in hte UK with her song ‘A Little More Love’. The video has also had over 587000 views on YouTube. She’ll be in Ireland at the end of June supporting Rod Stewart in the Odyssey in Belfast and at the RDS in Dublin.
Tiane Doan Na Champassak is a French born photographer of Asian descent. He current has two exhibitions running in the Copperhouse Gallery.
