beautiful radio at its best

A truly engaging, at times quirky, always intelligent yet accessible gate to broadening one’s horizon in culture and arts. Must surely be one of the best quality shows on Irish Radio and easily takes the crown in the field of the arts.

Perfect mix of snack sized eclectic allsorts. Usually around 6 or 7 minutes long so you'll listen to something you'd normally have skipped .. And hey, it's interesting! Recommend!
