2Day's Tune: Gemma Hayes - To Be Your Honey [Wired Fm Special]
Criminally overlooked for the Meteor Choice Music Prize, Gemma Hayes’s crowd funded Bones + Longing was one of the best Irish albums of last year, To Be Your Honey is a highlight.
Wired FM, Limerick's only fully licensed student radio station doesn't enforce a playlist on our DJs. But we do take our support of Irish artists seriously. In a bid to make it easier for our DJs, our staff listen to all the music that’s sent to us from Irish artists. We then put a together a fortnightly index for our DJs to avail of, and to let people know what we're currently listening to. It consists of some of our current favourites, along with a healthy serving of the best of tracks from our extensive archive. http://www.wiredfm.ie/?page_id=3895
Further to this, our weekly shows in support of Irish music are the daily award winning Eir Play, Undiscovered (Tuesday) and The Irish Music and Arts Show (Wednesday).
