Great show!

Have a listen, you don't need to be a Brightonian to enjoy this show :)

ballymoeontour ,

Fantastic Podcast.

Came across the what's the craic podcast recently and I really love it. Such a nice easygoing style from the broadcaster, quite like Shane Coleman! Particularly liked Keith Farnan and J Regan episodes but favourite is Colm MacConiomaire (probably spelt wrong!), really interesting music chat. Check it out. Podcast is a must listen for Irish abroad.
