Alpha Beats Draw 12th July 2019
We asked for twenty six of our community radio broadcasters at the station to put their name into the hat to do a one hour music show.
This is a show with a little difference, however, as each presenter will be given one letter of the alphabet and they will be asked to come up with 13 or 14 singers, songs or bands that begins with that letter.
1 Rule: No two songs by the same artist! & you get bonus points for Irish bands and musicians.
