From 8 to 9 p.m. this evening on Cork Music Station – the new online radio station established by Cullen’s William Fitzgerald and his son, John – I have the privilege of joining the team of DJs who dedicatedly broadcast the very best of Country-and-Western and Irish music on a nightly basis. I’ve entitled my hour-long programme “Radio Treasures” where I shall be attempting to share some musical gems, local recordings intermixed with some chat and meeting a Studio Guest. This first broadcast will include a song sung by John Walsh about the Titanic Survivor, Danny Buckley which we recorded in Boherbue on last Friday night at the official launch of Mike & Leo Fitzgerald’s superb DVD entitled “The Story of Titanic Survivor Danny Buckley 1890 – 1918”. Lots of other items also which will hopefully make for an interesting radio experience. Do have a listen to this live broadcast or even part of it if you have time to do so. Simply log into www.millstreet.ie and click on the Link entitled Cork Music Station on the right (one needs to scroll down) of the homepage…and there you are in tune with www.corkmusicstation.com – Happy listening!
