It’s been a mental week for me. Truly. Since the news filtered out that RTE’s digital services are to be no more, it has given me an extra oomph to show how important is to highlight new arts and culture in Ireland and with the Irish community outside Ireland.
Interview with Darce
I was delighted to be able to catch up with Cork hip hop / urban / pop artist, Darce on this week’s show. The man just seems to be releasing a shedload of tracks at the moment, including collaborations with Will De Burca and Jack Rua.
I love when the conversation flows. We chatted about his music, his positivity, his film and acting work and more.
Also, shout out to Darce’s mum Lillian who listened to the show. Rumour has it, she’s now our number 1 fan! 🙂

News about RTE Digital Stations
As per last week, you may have heard on the news, or read on the pages of this blog, RTE has announced plans to cease their DAB broadcasting. I received an email saying that everything would continue as normal for the time being. Either way, The London Ear will continue, providing a platform for the Irish community in London. I’ll keep you posted but for the time being, it’s business as usual.
If you’re Irish, outside Ireland and would like to get involved. Please get in touch.
