The Western Skyline Podcast – Winter Podcasts

NOVEMBER 2019

In the run up to Christmas on this podcast of the Western Skyline we look at Christmas events and concerts, and suggest a few gifts for the arts lovers in your life. There’s music from The Cranberries, The Cure, Sigrid, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Doobie Brothers, Bruce Springsteen, and -well, we just had to! – Joni Mitchell

[For some weird reason this podcast uploaded on to the mixcloud of one of the Kinvara FM gang – but it’s still Kinvara FM radio work!]

Chris’s Zurich Prize shortlisted self-portrait is also on exhibition at the moment in Cork. News of theatre in Galway – as Gaeilge ‘s Bearla – and local art exhibitions. Two tracks from David Bowie (Chris’s choice and also used in the soundtrack of Jo Jo Rabbit – a must-see film). Music too from Lynard Skynard, Buffalo Springfield, & Nina Simone,

I’d a lovely time in the studio on Saturday, chatting to local artist Christopher Banahan about a pop up exhibition at his house next weekend. There will be lots of artwork to celebrate the Cruinniu na mBad Festival which takes place in Kinvara on 19/20th August. And Kinvara FM 92.4fm will be live at the pier. We hope to remain dry!
