“Radio Treasures” Tonight with Focus on Eugene, Denis & Bumbleance

Tonight on “Radio Treasures” broadcast on Cork Music Station 9:30 to 11:00pm we feature our regular items with a blend of uplifting songs and music.    Being “Bloomsday” 16th June 2020 we hear Frank Patterson with one of the songs from James Joyce’s “The Dead”.

Our 10pm Interview is Library related when we meet a gentleman who has become quite famous on television and the media because of his hugely important input for the Library Service during COVID-19.   Representing the Library inputs we meet with Denis Tangney who introduces Eugene Bradley. 

Denis & Eugene of Library Services.

 And we reveal how Denis Murphy from Newmarket solved our unending clicking noise which could even be heard in Australia!

And we provide an update on Cork Music Station’s “Go Fund Me” Fundraising Campaign in aid of “Bumbleance” currently approaching €600.00.  This wonderfully praiseworthy Annual Project in aid of “Bumbleance” is coordinated by Ita and William Fitzgerald.  William will be interviewing a key member of that organisation at 10pm on CMS on this Thursday night during his weekly Thursday Show.

All this and more in tonight’s “Radio Treasures”.  Happy Listening!  (S.R.) [read more …] ““Radio Treasures” Tonight with Focus on Eugene, Denis & Bumbleance”

Eily’s Report – 16th June

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.

Hopefully a date will be fixed for the biggest break in the Covid19 regulations, the ban on hairdressing. No other section of the entire pandemic regulations gets more coverage. It went to the point of panic as people of both genders, but mostly the women, looked to the future in despair as tresses grew longer and white roots got whiter. The signs were everywhere. Social distancing brought us into every home right across the world as reporters gave us their news from their own sitting rooms. Devoid of make-up and hair grooming. Hair was full topic on every phone call or meeting and friends who normally turned on Skype refrained from doing so because they were reluctant to let anybody see how they looked, unkempt. It was easy to get hair colour and family members turned stylists with a mixture of perfect or disastrous results. Not everybody was lucky enough to have someone  to trim their locks or even have a pair of scissors suited to the task, so the next best thing was D.I.Y. Again the need for a professional touch was plain to see.  They say that after this pandemic, things will never again be the same and I think it will apply to the locks as well. Some say they’ll never dye their hair again, others when they’ve seen it in a different line will want to change their style.  Hairdressers will be over-run because everybody will want to be in first.   The discarded tresses will fill volumes. It will level out in time but for now we mustn’t let the hair problem , go to our heads.
