The Western Skyline Podcast 21 October 2017

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!  Contact me at kinvarafm@gmail.com putting The Western Skyline in the subject line. Or tweet @kinvarafm

Am just home from a trip into Galway. Haven’t been in all summer; too busy with the Radio Diploma and work experience in West Clare. It was time for a bit of necessary (ahem) shopping: a boxload of my favourite coffee in M&S, mini hot cross buns, and a coffee & walnut cake.

Treats over, there was money spent on paint and a new lampshade for the guest room, and boring but essential printer ink. WHY is printer ink so expensive? Answers on a postcard please …

I also got my hands on these beauties:
