Radiothon 2017 schedule

There’s less than a week to go to the 2017 CCR Radiothon, a fundraising event featuring over 24 hours of live radio.

This day of live radio will be launched on Thursday, March 16th, at 6pm with a special 2-hour show, hosted by Dolores Keaveney, which will include interviews with several of the volunteer hosts who will be on-air during the event.

The Radiothon will obviously be in full swing when the St. Patrick’s Day parade takes to the streets of the Claremorris and this event will be covered, via an outside broadcast from Symmetrix Hair Salon in The Square.

Here is the full schedule:

  • Thursday, 6-8pm, Dolores Keaveney and guests
  • 8-10pm, Live music with Fr. Peter Gannon and friends
  • 10pm-midnight, Catherine Lavery and Seamus Ruttledge
  • Friday, midnight-2am, Bernard Joyce

We had a very busy Friday morning here at Claremorris Community Radio.

First up, the students from the Boys’ National School talked about their ‘Walk for Water’ campaign and their class enterprise project. Next some students from Mount St. Michael secondary school described their plans to build a satellite, no less!

Finally, local artists Jimmy Burns and Peter Costello came in to discuss their exhibitions in the Town Hall.

Update: You can now listen to a podcast of the school children’s interviews.
