We interrupt this broadcast- to bring you news of my very own broadcast!
For the last few months I’ve been volunteering with Ballyhoura Community Radio. I co-host Ditch The Ironing on Mondays, a light chat show. Last Friday my own music show, Reverb, went live. It’s indie pop and rock. You can listen to the first show on Mixcloud.
