The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 204 with Stephen Bradley and Chris from The Elation

What a show! I’m thrilled every week I get to do this. I love radio, I love being able to give a voice to passionate, talented people so I was delighted to be about to chat to actor, Stephen Bradley and to Christ from Limerick band, The Elation.

Interview with Actor, Stephen Bradley

Judgement - Stephen Bradley

I was delighted to get a tip off from an online friend about Stephen Bradley. Stephen is a London based, Irish actor and has been working on a series of warm up shows for this play ‘Judgement’ which he is bringing to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

It was lovely to speak to someone when you can hear the passion in their voice for what they do and a belief in their work. ‘Judgement’ is a one man show and Stephen spoke about the journey he has been through to get the play to where it is now.

“Judgement puts us face to face with one soldier’s reality and asks us to put his fate in our hands. Hear the facts laid bare in a stark account of what human survival in it’s darkest hour truly means.”

Best of luck in Edinburgh, Stephen!

Edit: There’s still time to catch one of the preview shows in Belfast on August 9. Check the details here

Judgement runs at Natural Food Kafe – Basement Room, 55 Clerk Street, Edinburgh. Playing nightly at 7:25PM, Sunday 19th – Saturday 25th August.

You can find out more about Stephen on his Facebook page and on Twitter.

Interview with Chris from The Elation

I was joined on the show by Chris from The Elation. I’ve been playing their song XO for a while. They’ve just released an EP entitled ‘Clickbait’ and ‘Catch’ is the next single to be taken from that.

Another passionate guy on today’s show. Chris left university to play with The Elation full time! We chat about their formative time together, getting their sound and how the band came to London to record.
