Kilcorney man Ed Smith has moved his late night music show on TodayFM to Sunday night and it’s been renamed Ed’s Songs of Praise 🙂
The show is “three hours of the finest in indie, rock, hip hop and soul” … but actually, it’s super, an interesting, and refreshing listen.
Ed has been with TodayFM since 1998 (when he was legally adopted by them!). Aside from his own show, he produces the Paul McLoone Show (Mon-Thurs), does the movie reviews for the Matt Cooper Show, and you’ll hear him as a second presenter some evenings also.
Listen to Ed’s Songs of Praise every Sunday night from 10pm to 1am, or if you miss it, you can listen back on the TodayFM Player.
No Limbs No Limits is the extraordinary and awe-inspiring story of Millstreet girl Joanne O’ Riordan. Joanne is one of seven known people in the world living with Total Amelia No Limbs No Limits is in cinemas nationwide from Friday April 11th – April 24th 2014.
Programme 230 which was broadcast last Thursday February 6 at 10.00pm is now online with a repeat of this show being transmitted tommorrow Sunday February 9 at 8.00pm.You can now watch our Tenth Programme of the Season right here at millstreet.ie or on the LTV2 Facebook Page
To receive reception one needs to retune analogue settings (available in menu “settings”). When scanning is complete one will now have the new channel – either UHF Channel 30 or UHF Channel 35 (or both in certain areas of Millstreet). All this depends on how strong the signal is in any given area. The UHF Channel 30 signal comes from the Carriganima direction whereas the UHF Channel 35 signal comes from the western side of Millstreet Town. This is now saved and is presently transmitting the EWTN (Religious) Channel.

Dan Joe Kelleher of LTV has compiled a wonderful selection of past and present video footage for this evening’s LTV Sunday broadcast. The following is the intended schedule:
5.30pm Mass from St. John’s Well, Mushera in June 2013. This is a repeat showing by popular request. The Celebrant is Fr. Jackie Corkery.
6.30pm A variety of excerpts from various current and past programmes beginning with Macroom’s Annual New Year’s Day Hunt 2014. This is followed by a brief visit to the 2013 Christmas Pantomime at the Briery Gap in Macroom entitled “Babes in the Wood”. Next we have a recording from “Éigse” 2004 in Ballyvourney. We then visit “The Rambling House” in Boherbue where hopefully we shall get to see one of the very best recordings ever of the traditional “Brush Dance”. And we finish with a delightful “Round the Fireside” feature recorded in the home of a French Family who have been coming on an annual basis to this wonderful holiday home in Aubane and who are most interested and proficient in Irish and Breton traditional music. This evening’s LTV transmission is scheduled to conclude at 8.30 or soon thereafter. Happy viewing! (S.R.)
UPDATE: Weather conditions appear to have affected transmission equipment necessary for broadcasting on Channels 30 and 35 UHF which serve the Millstreet area. Dan Joe has indicated that the above programme line-up will be retransmitted at a future date when the equipment faults are corrected. It’s quite possible that the current broadcast may be available in the LTV1 Macroom area and its surroundings. Apologies for this interruption in transmission but one has no control over weather related effects. (S.R.)
