Above are our team of new radio volunteers researching their choice for the 5 Irish Tunes show – Dean Wright, Barbara McClure, Luka Stopic, Mary Gantley,  Conor Clarke,  Bruno Vilares and Róisín Ward Morrow. Seoirse McCann and Sean Callaghan called to share their experience of presenting on Dundalk FM and to encourage our new volunteers to join the September Radio Course. The links were recorded on the night, edited by Alan Byrne the next day and broadcast on Dundalk FM on Saturday 27th August – you can see the Running Order and listen to the show on the link below. From what we heard on the night, we are sure that we will be introducing new community radio programmes into our schedule starting in October.
