“Radio Treasures” on Tuesday 22nd Feb. 2022 at 9.30pm

The final “Radio Treasures” programme (for quite some time) will be broadcast on Cork Music Station this Tuesday, 22nd Feb. 2022 from 9.30 to 11.30pm.   We share our usual blend of music, song and chat including our Call Outs to our many Loyal Listeners.   Tonight we look back on some favourite memories of past programmes and we chat about the images below which on this occasion places focus on the amazing atmosphere we experienced during the wonderful Eurovision Week of May, 1993.   Sincere thanks to our truly marvellous loyal Family of Radio Listeners who have tuned into “Radio Treasures” over the years.   Although live transmission of the Show will not happen until sometime in the future it is hoped that on every Tuesday in the “Radio Treasures” time slot at 9.30pm an hour long programme of music and song will be broadcast.   Heartfelt thanks for the wonderfully kind thoughts and prayers which have been shared by so many in our Radio Family.  It is greatly appreciated.  Happy listening, dear Friends.  (S.R.)

Eily’s Report – 22nd February

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

Three hurricanes in one week was not an easy challenge but the Good Lord who calmed the seas brought us through them without too much disturbance. Goodness knows we had to batten down the hatches and take cover. But not everybody escapes un scathed some were without power while others got property damage. As a family we are most grateful that our members at Kilmeedy Castle escaped without injury when the mighty winds lifted the roof off one of the sheds and took it up on high landing it down with great force breaking their towing caravan which was parked in its path before taking a large bite out off their  back-kitchen roof. It happened at 7.30 am just as Jack was having a cup of coffee before going to work. Needless to say he got a great shock, the whole family did, but were grateful that he was still in situ to deal with the problem. Lucky for them that he had full access to the company building equipment and staff to do the necessary repairs. In a short length of time their cosy home was fixed again.
