    Reasons to be Cheerful 

    Join Marty Morrissey and guests as they look forward to 2016 and ponder the many and varied reasons they have to be cheerful as they enter the new year. 

    An Evening with John Prine

    The legendary singer songwriter was in Ireland earlier this year to record a special interview at the US Ambassador's residence. Interviewed by RTE Radio 1's John Creedon, the great man also sings some of his most enduring songs in front of a live audience. The show is full of his memories of growing up in rural Illinois, stories from his childhood and how he began to write songs such as Paradise. 

    Holiday Airs

    Neil Doherty presents a festive mix of great music, chat and competitions.
