Culture File: Pocket Music

Improbable Frequency and Alice in Funderland did it big ‘n’ bold. But the renaissance in Irish musical also includes pocket-sized delights, like Kostick & Clohessy’s 45-minute, Pocket Music. I popped along to rehearsals at Bewley’s Café Theatre to meet with director Ronan Phelan and cast Donncha O’Dea and Camille Lucy Ross.

First Radio Review!

I was delighted to find out that my Dublin Comic Jam piece for Culture File on RTÉ Lyric fm was reviewed in the Evening Herald last week. The full article is here and the extract is below:

Equally enjoyable was Liam Geraghty’s short piece on the Dublin Comic Jam for Monday’s Culture File. As local cartoonist Paddy Lynch explained, the Jam is a monthly meet-up, held in the Lord Edward Pub in Christchurch, where artists gather to spontaneously create improvised comic strips… while knocking back a few social pints. The atmosphere Geraghty captured was communal, laid-back and collaborative. It all sounded inspiringly lively and lovely.

The Rise of the Robots – The Business with George Lee

In my first report for The Business with George Lee on RTÉ Radio 1 I looked at computers vs humans. Here’s the blurb:

“Can you remember the last time you called into a tour operator to book an airplane ticket? Or dropped into a bank to pay a bill? Now with computerisation many people can do all these things, and more, online. So, are computers taking over our world? Or are there some things they just can’t do? We sent Liam Geraghty to find out.”
