On the airwaves!
Thanks to all the good work of the supremely competent Bernie at Gael Linn, I’m spending quite a bit of time on the airwaves these days. Charlie McGettigan (http://www.charliemcgettigan.com) does a brilliant show on Shannonside/Northern Sound Radio (http://www.shannonside.ie) that airs every Saturday from 10am to 12 noon. He was kind enough to have me on the show for a full hour last weekend, during which I managed to get in four songs and lots and lots of chat! I’ve posted the full interview on the website – here’s the link if you’d like to listen back to it: http://ats.sarahmcquaid.com/press-group-3.html
This coming Sunday night, 11 March, I’ll be talking with Áine Hensey on her show ‘The Late Session’ on RTÉ Radio 1. The show airs from 10 to 11pm GMT but can be caught on the web for up to a week after that via this link: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/thelatesession/
On Thursday, 15 March, I’ll be doing an interview and a few songs on ‘Today With Pat Kenny’. The programme is on from 10am to 12 noon GMT, and as with Áine Hensey's show, you can listen to it online for one week afterwards. Here’s the link: http://www.rte.ie/radio1/todaywithpatkenny/
On Tuesday, 3 April, I'll be making my first-ever television appearance (gulp!) on The View. Hosted by writer and broadcaster John Kelly every Tuesday night on RTÉ 1, the show airs at 11pm GMT and I'll be playing the title track from When Two Lovers Meet at the close of the show. Once again, if you miss the show, you can still watch the clip for a week afterwards on http://www.rte.ie/tv/theview/index.html
Finally, on Sunday, 6 May, I’ll be the guest on June Carley’s show, ‘Best Of Irish’, on Midlands 103 (link for more info about June and her show: http://www.midlandsradio.fm/page.aspx?page_id=137). The show airs from 11pm to 12 midnight GMT, and you can listen live at http://www.midlands103.com/ There are a few more gigs in the pipeline, too. See the calendar for an updated list.
