At the age of forty-one Rachael Weiss got rid of most of her possessions, found a home for her cat & left Sydney for a new life in Prague. Three years living there gave her enough material for a book called The Thing About Prague. She now lives in Dublin & joins John in studio this morning.

Music with Beoga

Music with Beoga

In studio with John we have music from Beoga. The bedrock of their sound lies firmly within the Irish tradition, however, they are not afraid to incorporate other genres’ nuances into their music. From bluesy riffs to a raunchy New Orleans jamboree vibe, their music always returns to a wonderfully bouncy Irish sound. The result is traditional, with a huge sense of fun & adventure.

Beoga will play Tradfest in Dublin's Temple Bar - the Button Factory on Saturday January 31st - for tickets go to www.templebartrad.com

Flight Safety - John Leahy

Flight Safety - John Leahy

Air Travel is said to be the safest form transport, but when a plane crashes, disappears or even merely has trouble landing, it’s headline news all around the world.   Thankfully things like this don’t happen very often, largely because of the quality of the aircraft & the pilots that fly them. John is joined in studio by former British Airways pilot John Leahy.

John is co-founder of the website www.flightcoach.com - for free downloads on everything you need to know about flying safe & worry free.
