An old favourite is returning to the airwaves of Claremorris Community Radio. Fox Country hosted by a local legend of country music, Michael Fox, will recommence broadcasting on our station this Friday, March 1st, at 4pm!

Fox Country will be live each Friday from 4-5pm and Michael will welcome any texts or requests via our text line 087 3262007. The show will feature the very best in Country and Irish music.

Fox Country will also be repeated on Sundays at 5pm, beginning on Sunday March 10th.

Listen to Journey of Discovery

Journey of Discovery returned to our schedule a few weeks back.  The shows in this year’s series are inspired by the annual Country to Country Festival that took place over three days in London, Dublin and Glasgow. The festival takes place in March each year and this year’s dates were the 10th, 11th and 12th.

The diversity within country music now is palpable and exciting.  Host Linda Conway brings you a flavour of some of the artists who took to both the main stages and the smaller stages at Country to Country. Each show includes music, news and press conferences featuring new and established artists.

Journey of Discovery is a specialised music programme dedicated to independent artitsts to showcase their talents, skills, songs and the music that inspires them to keep going and get into songwriting in the first place. It first aired here on Claremorris Community Radio in November 2013 .  Show host Linda Conway loves music: singing it, playing it, going to see live music. She even says “if music was a man I would marry him!”

If you want to get in touch with Linda, please feel free to contact her on journeyofdiscovery2013@gmail.com.

The show is broadcast on Mondays at 3pm and repeated on Fridays at 11am.  You can also listen back to this series of Journey of Discovery, all episodes are currently available on our mixcloud site: www.mixcloud.com/claremorrisfm/.
