My name is Tom Phelan and I have been involved In local radio,on and off,since 1979.It is a medium I find I am comfortable and relaxed in.I enjoy communicating with my listeners,entertaining and informing them with words and music.
I am able to achieve this on my programme,”Good Afternoon Kilkenny City”,from 12 noon to 2PM. Basing the show around events from the past that happened on the date in question and matching the music to these events and deaths and births, I can achieve a varied,interesting programme. I try,as much as possible, to feature local artists and music,and whenever they can to get them to perform live in studio.
Interviews in studio or on the phone also help to publicise local events,plus our regular contributors, Mairead Kiernan and Billy Walsh also cover the entertainment and sporting scenes.
I very much enjoy presenting Good Afternoon Kilkenny City ,and trust the listener is pleased by what they hear between noon and 2 PM.
