Eamonn Lenihan is a freelance broadcaster and producer.

Recently, he made a brief return to radio, after taking time out to complete his second novel. Mixcloud listenbacks of two pilot shows made for The Jazz UK are available below.


Note that regular weekly programmes have been scheduled for 2019.


In the first Euphonic Favourites, Eamonn chats to Scottish jazz musician/composer Tommy Smith and the Northern Irish drummer/bandleader David Lyttle. The programme includes a selection of jazz recordings by these and other UK artists. First broadcast on The Jazz UK on April 2nd 2018.



The second show finds Eamonn in the company of Welsh-born jazz musician/composer Gwilym Simcock (currently touring with Pat Metheny) and the English big band arranger-cum-soundtrack composer Colin Towns (“Doc Martin”, "Foyle’s War”, etc). Includes a selection of jazz recordings by both these artists. First broadcast on The Jazz UK on May 7th 2018.



Duologue is also available on Mixcloud: the full interviews with jazz performers.




Eamonn presented "The Blue Of The Night" for three nights every weekend on RTÉ lyric fm, Ireland's state-run arts and classical music station.
