Well, a couple of weeks in and 2021 seems like it’s 2020 on speed. At least I have a bag full of tunes to brighten up the January days.
I was just thinking the other day, I started my first radio show on RTÉ 2XM in July 2011. That’s nearly ten years of being able to share wonderful music, arts and culture with you. I’d love to mark the occasion in some way. If you have any ideas on what I should do, please let me know. I don’t really want to do just a ‘Best of’ series.
Also don’t forget if you’re releasing new music, get in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org Make sure you include a press release and downloadable wav. If your music fits in with what I play, I’d love to hear from you but Irish artists will always get the priority.
