Here, I’m joined on The Western Skyline by Aoife Reilly, a writer living and working in Co. Galway. Aoife chats about her writing process and reads poems from her pamphlet ‘Lilac & Gooseberries’, which is published by Lapwing Press. You can read more about her here: https://aoifereilly.com/ It was great to have a live reading in the studio!
Some Arts news also on the show, and music from Coldplay, Keith, The Monkees, Bruce Hornsby & the Range, Carole King, and Bob Dylan.
There seems to be less and less time between each radio show! This should bring us up to date with the podcasts. Here is last Saturday’s.
In this week’s Western Skyline there’s arts news, and listings of upcoming Hallowe’en events. We preview the upcoming Comedy Festival in Galway and play some vintage comedy clips -including the great Tom Lehrer. Finally, there are some tracks in homage to George Michael, following the release of the documentary ‘Freedom’. In the show, I mention a Rolling Stone item about the documentary. You can read that here. And the BBC are saying that Michael is heading for a posthumous number 1 after the airing of the documentary. Read that news clip here. I hope you enjoy the show. AND, if there is a book club out there interested in reading Lincoln at the Bardo and also Cré na Cille … well we’d love to have you in the studio to discuss them!
