Upbeat on Air
A new pop-up radio station, Upbeat on Air, will be popping up on 6th October. One of the many stars who will feature is Alan Shortt who explains the concept.
The station will broadcast from the reception area of St Patrick's Mental Health Services based in St Patrick's University Hospital. They will be there for a week from 6th - 10th October to publicise World Mental Health Day.
They hope to promote positive mental health - 1 in 4 people have suffered from depression. They are looking for Ireland's most popular happy song and will ultimately create a playlist from this.
