Radio Culture Night is back

After four successful special Radio Culture Night Broadcasts, Near FM will present live coverage from Culture Night 2014, on 19 September 2014. The broadcast will be supported by our colleagues in Dublin South FM, Phoenix FM, West Dublin Access Radio & Raidio Na Life.

As in the past, the programme will feature artists, musicians, actors, writers and museum and gallery curators to showcase the best of what Culture Night has to offer. We expect to bring to the live and radio audience a mix of live  content as well as pre-recorded segments and live music. And we will also broadcast As Gaeilge (keep an eye on the site for the further information close to the date).
