October Radio Airplay and Links

This Blog will be updated weekly throughout October. 

As always... if you are a radio presenter/station and have recently played or are intending to play my songs and are not listed here, please do let me know and I will add the show to the list and do all I can to help promote the show.

I am hugely grateful to all the presenters for their time and support, each and every air play is so important to me and I want to do all I can to support your shows and keep the folk radio scene a vibrant and thriving one. What you do is priceless. Thank you!

The Lament of The Black Sheep' s first air play (as far as I know) in the land where it all began. Having started my musical journey singing on the streets of Dublin and later, busking in Galway, I am thrilled that all these years later, my story has come full circle. Thank you Noel Casey for bringing my music home.
