Adi Roche: 10,000 days since Chernobyl

To mark this significant anniversary, the charity have released a song called 10,000 Days by Derry songwriter Paul Casey. All funds raised by the selling of the single, which is now available on iTunes and other online stores, will go towards Chernobyl Children International.

New series: Soundcrafts

trad-instrumentsSoundcrafts, a new six-part series on Claremorris Community Radio, examines the craft of traditional Irish instrument making in the West of Ireland.

The show, presented by long-term CCR volunteer Tommy O’Connor, brings the listener on a journey through the workshops of the skilled workers who produce musical instruments here in Ireland.

Each episode will focus on a different craftsperson and their trade and also includes some Irish music performed on the finished instrument.

Soundcrafts will be broadcast over the next three weeks in the documentary slot on Saturdays at 2pm and repeated on Fridays at 5pm.  Each programme will feature two episodes.
