On The Road

2016-02-10 09:19:43

Today, Eamonn is re-united up in Dublin with his old colleague Carl Corcoran. Together, they'll be presenting the fourth of four radio workshops in RTÉ Donnybrook. As usual, transition year students shall converge from all corners of Ireland for this free-of-charge session…

The Power Of Radio

Eamonn recently announced his departure from RTÉ lyric fm, after 14 years with the station. Much correspondence has been received in the past week or so - many thanks for taking the trouble to get in touch.

On Thursday, Eamonn says goodbye to late-night radio (for now). He'll be doing his best to make the "transition" from 2015 into 2016 as painless as possible; mostly, by airing pieces he's been honoured to introduce during his time with the Irish state broadcaster, RTÉ: among them, oud-player Anouar Brahem; works by Britten and Beethoven; singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III; Roy Milton, delivering a little jump & jive; a reading of John Cage's "In A Landscape" by pianist Michael McHale; and jazz singer/pianist Shirley Horn (see video), who shall - literally - have the last word. There's also a final selection from Bob Chilcott's "The Angry Planet", specifically part of "The Miracle Of Spring". So if you’re staying in, why not ring out the old and ring in the new with a batch of Eamonn’s personal favourites?
