Written by on June 22, 2018

This Friday’s schedule is a mix of art music and business…

  • Our first half hour is going to a selection of Classical Guitar pieces, curated by Philip P. Gorey
    [4am, 8am, 12pm, 4pm, 8pm, 12am]
  • Up next we’ve got two short episodes of Moze Jacobs’ “There’s No Business Like…”
    First, we meet Paul Nolan, the man behind Clonakilty’s now infamous “Paul’s Second Hand Furniture and Auld Shite” sign.
    Then, to mark the opening of her new shop on Ashe Street, Clonakilty, we’re going to the archive for an interview with Lisa Tonge of “Little Green Dot”, from back when she was getting started in West Cork.
    [4.30am, 8.30am, 12.30pm, 4.30pm, 8.30pm, 12.30am]
  • Brand new for this week, Orla Murphy interviews Pat Collins about his film “Song of Granite”
    Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. SONG OF GRANITE is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.
    Pat Collins says, “the song comes out of silence and when the song is over, goes back to silence  again…”  So this  excerpt from a much longer conversation concentrates on the songs and the singers, including Damien Dempsey, Micheal O Conghaola, Lisa O’Neill, and Joe Heaney,  (whose life is a central thread in the weave of the film).
    Produced by Orla Murphy and Michael Holly as part of the Creative Podcasting workshop at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre in 2018
    [5am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm, 9pm, 1am]
  • Adding to this week’s arts slot, we here on the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way begrudgingly admit that Dublin may have a thing or two going for it as well, as Brendan McCormack discusses James Joyce’s masterpiece “Ulysses” in the first of a 2-part analysis of the work.
    [5.30am, 9.30am, 1.30pm, 5.30pm, 9.30pm, 1.30am]
  • Wrapping up the schedule for today, we get ready to set off for the weekend with the perfect soundtrack for a road-trip “In Search of the Lost Chord – On The Road Again”
    [6.30am, 10.30am, 2.30pm, 6.30pm, 10.30pm, 2.30am]

The West Cork Update will not be on air this week, but will return next week at 5, 9 and 1.
