I HAVE began a brand new job – on air – with the nationwide radio station In the present day FM, and I really feel so grateful for the chance.
With the beginning of each new chapter comes the shut of an older one, and for me that’s my time on the unwavering pink bubble of music, enjoyable and leisure that’s SPIN Southwest!
I began working for SPIN as a teen, my first job was a “spini’ , a part of SPIN’s well-known avenue staff. Our job spec was to be “the face of the station’ at music, sport and leisure occasions throughout the southwest. We drove pink mini coopers in convoy, wore SPIN branded T-shirts with adidas hi-tops, the peak of trend in 2012. The very best part-time job a school scholar might hope for, and a fail-safe option to get bitten by the radio bug.
I introduced my first radio present, bilingually, in October 2013. I labored on SPIN’s Pop Raidió for 5 years earlier than taking up the SPIN Hits lunchtime slot in 2018 and producing and presenting SPIN’s Irish chart present Hit 30 na hÉireann, and most just lately the station’s discuss present, SPIN NOW.
There have been so many sensible moments and reminiscences over time, however most significantly particular connections created with listeners, native companies, musicians, creatives and simply sensible characters.
I’m studying on a regular basis, however one factor I’m certain of is that nothing fairly like radio exists. I feel the pandemic proved simply how necessary radio is as a companion and an intimate, dependable supply of knowledge, camaraderie and luxury for therefore many.
I hope this subsequent chapter brings with it the identical pleasure and pleasure I felt each time the crimson ‘on-air’ mild flashed in SPIN southwest HQ. I do know it should.
I hope you’ll include me and proceed to have fun the particular medium that’s Irish radio.
I’m stay on In the present day FM, Saturday 2-6pm, Sunday 4-7pm, and Monday/ Tuesday 7-10pm.
