Christmas songs and poetry

For the second year in a row, CCR visited Scoil Naisiunta Muire Gan Smal and recorded the school’s choir performing a selection of classic Christmas carols.

You can listen to these local children performing on two occasions over Christmas weekend. Together with a new recording of a Christmas poem by local poet Pat Macken, the carols will be broadcast at 1pm on Christmas Eve and at 2pm on Christmas Day.

We will also podcast the programme in the near-future.

Christmas Classic Sounds Special

This weekend will see the broadcast of a couple of unique shows on CCR.

By special request, on Saturday at 11am we will repeat the tribute programme to Martin Casey, hosted by Johnny Kirrane, which was first aired on November 26th.

On Sunday at 2pm, Andrew Newman will present a Classical Sounds two hour Christmas Special.  The show will feature a feast of Christmas-themed classical music alongside a selection of pieces either composed or conducted by people who have passed away in 2016.
