An Appreciation to Tracey from your colleagues at Dundalk FM.
We will miss your weekly 100% Irish show on Dundalk FM, it encouraged presenters to play some of the artists they heard on your show and your presentation style and the content of the show was as professional as you are likely to hear on any radio station. I hope that you got plenty of satisfaction from the series.
It was a great honour for the station and for yourself as a music presenter to win a Craol Achievement Award (one of two you won!) in the words of the judges it was ‘innovative, well produced, stylish and, above all else, 100% Irish!’
I would like to thank you and Tray for the marvelous publicity you brought the guests and by extension to the station. So after all that, I hope you will continue to send in once off festival 100% Irish shows – they are really great shows.
You broke a lot of new ground by recording the show at home and emailing it in, sending us the ‘One to Watch’ and the once off Vantastival and Knockanstocken Festival shows. That is in addition to presenting First Cut, hosting the Battle of the Bands in the Imperial Hotel and joining the LIVE CREW at Vantastial 2018.
There will always be a slot on Dundalk FM for your next radio idea.
Once, again thank you for wonderful Irish music that you have curated for the education of our listeners.
Wishing you every success.
Kind regards (on behalf of all your colleagues at the station)
