The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Thursday 17 July 2014

This week on Blue Tunes...

Thursday night Aedin Gormley sits in for Carl.

And then, on Bank Holiday Monday Carl returns to share a repeat broadcast of  Blue Live at Kaleidoscope Night at Bello Bar (see video below). From Tuesday on, colleagues Ellen Cranitch and Aedin Gormley will "look after the shop" on Blue for the next two weeks.

August Bank Holiday Monday - Blue of the Night at Kaleidoscope

Enjoy this short video collage of a great night when Blue broadcast live from Kaleidoscope Night at Bello Bar in Dublin last June. You'll have another chance of enjoying this musical potpourri when we re-broadcast the concert on Bank Holiday Monday's Blue (August 1st) starting at 10pm.
