Claremorris Community Radio presents On Board the Poetry Surprise Tour for Poetry Day Ireland 2018!
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!
On Poetry Day Ireland, 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 Poetry Day Ireland, Thursday 26th April, at 8.00 pm. (The show will be repeated on Saturday, 28 April, at 7.00 pm).
The third annual National Community Radio Day takes place on Friday next, 23rd June, with stations around the country celebrating 22 years of community radio in Ireland.
As part of the celebrations, Claremorris Community Radio and Flirt FM, Galway’s student station, are engaging in a programme share.
From 9 to 11am, Catherine Lavery’s Good Morning Show, will be broadcast here and in Galway. The show will feature a host of guests, discussing the past, present and future of our station. Catherine will also have a super prize up for grabs during the morning!
Later on, CCR will broadcast two shows from Flirt FM:
- 2pm Radar: Trivia Matters, a show featuring fun topics, witty chat & good music! At 2:45pm we feature your pet peeves! Follow the link to our Facebook page for more clips!
3pm Weekend Kickoff: David, Graham and Mark present a look at campus, local, national and international sports.
