The Irish Connection with John Lowry
The Irish connection goes on air Saturdays 10am-12 noon. Playing all types of Irish music from Traditional to mainstream.
On the show I try to get interviews with well known artists also new bands/solo singers to help them to get there names and music to the public.
Over the years, I have interviewed Ronan Keeting/Charlie Lansbourgh/Red Hurley/The Wolfetones/Dana/The Fury brothers also my good friend Jimmy Cricket. Also on the country scien Shaun Loughrey/Foster & Allen/ The Benn sisters/Thomas McGuire/Eamonn Mc Cann. Also the trad groups like Lunasa/Shake the barley(ones to watch) Dessie Donnelly/ 4men & a dog.
There have been so many artists I cant remember them all but its been great to speak to them all.
The show has a big loyal following with 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Irish people and non Irish listening every week.
The show is called the irish connection to promote Irish music, food and where to shop and remember the taste of home.
So come on all you First, second and third generation Irish and send your music in to me for radio airplay. Also if you want to come on the show to give people information on a good or new Irish dish feel free.
And not forgetting before T.V. the good old Ghost stories. If you have any let me know and I will record you telling them or if you wish tell them over the phone live on air.
In May i will be having a interview with Dominic Kirwan who has a new C.D. album out on Rossette Records. www.rosetterecords.co.uk
