Poetry surprise tour scenic route

The board of Claremorris Community Radio consists of seven people with very varied experiences of poetry; some of them read it, some of them write it and some of them don’t remember when they last saw a poem!

The Scenic Route is the full recording of the programme that aired on Poetry Day Ireland 2018 and includes a wealth of additional discussions and other items.

You can join the board of the station when they each contribute three poems to be read and discussed. These may be poems they know and love, ones they remember fondly from the past or only discovered recently – perhaps even poems they loathe! They may be poems everyone has heard before or ones by new or little-known writers. Who knows? This is a programme of poetry surprises.

Listen in on 94.6 FM, in the Claremorris area, or listen live through the website right here.  The show will be aired on Tuesday 22nd May and 7pm, with part 2 going out on Wednesday 23rd at 4pm.  (The show will be repeated on Tuesday 29th April, at 7.00 pm, and Wednesday 30th at 4pm).

Last Orders, starting Saturday

Last Orders is a show of mostly folk songs with the occasional surprise thrown in.

Each week, presenter Dave Kitching takes a different theme often found in the folk genre, drawing on examples from Ireland and around the world.

If you would like to request any songs for later episodes or ask for further information, please tweet at @davekitching or @claremorris946 or text the station at 087 326 2007.

Last Orders will be on Saturday afternoons at 3pm, as a replacement show for Afternoon Delight, as Dermot is taking a few weeks off during the month of May. Last Orders will also be repeated on Tuesdays at 12 noon.
