The Shades of Green Radio Show was started on Dundalk FM by Jimmy Neary in 2005. Jimmy had been a radio enthusiast for most of his life and with that, an admiring fan of Country and Irish Music. When Dundalk FM provided Jimmy with the opportunity to host a radio show, he established Shades of Green, and has since enjoyed meeting and broadcasting to like minded people!
Tune in to the best in County and Irish on Monday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. You can visit Jimmy’s website which was designed by his son John at www.jimmyneary.net. This a fantastic site with photos of guests, playlists and Country and Irish links. Watch out for Jimmy’s Shades of Green Show on the Phil Mack County Show TV credits. Shades of Green wouldn’t be the same without Marita who keeps the show on the road!
Message from Colin Harney Sincere thanks to Jimmy Neary today for inviting me onto his country show, SHADES OF GREEN for featuring a number of my songs and for the great craic we had on and off air. A very genuine, down to earth man and presenter who is willing to give local artists airplay. Also sincere thanks to Jimmys wife for the warm welcome and hospitality I received and to the Boss lol wee Eleanor (Jimmy’s grand daughter) a future country presenter in the making. Seeing behind the scenes today give me an opportunity to see the planning and work that goes into presenting a successful weekly show. Jimmy is a true professional and perfectionist and puts a lot of effort into ensuring his listeners are presented with great country music. Thanks again Jimmy and I look forward to us meeting up again. Colin 12/08/18
