I am delighted to say that I have recently joined The Cork Music Show team which broadcasts via Cork FM Community Radio 100.5FM and I will co-host the show with Suzy Bleu on Sunday June 26th.
The show airs between 4 and 5pm on Sundays and features music from Cork acts as well as a live interview with a local act so if you are in a Cork rock/indie/alternative band/group and have an interest in appearing on the show or simply getting your CD played please feel free to drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
