Rescheduled “Radio Treasures” on Cork Music Station Thursday from 9:00 to 11:00pm

Due to the fact that Broadband Coverage was not available in our Millstreet Studio last night (Tuesday) we were not able to broadcast “Radio Treasures” as scheduled.  William Fitzgerald kindly transmitted his own Thursday Show instead.   Consequently “Radio Treasures” will this week be broadcast this Thursday (25th Jan. 2018) from 9 to 11pm (an extra half-hour bonus!)…Seán R.

Tomorrow (Thursday, 25th Jan. 2018)….We feature the very best of music and song  and we have a selection of musings of a wide and interesting variety.  We reflect on last Friday’s Millstreet Gramophone Circle and on Sunday’s Vintage Event.  We talk about Killarney House which has recently been superbly renovated.
