This is a blog from Ireland by a self-confessed radio addict. My day job is in academia but radio is one of my hobbies. Sometimes the hobby meets the day job.

Wireless is also the name of a monthly series about radio which I present on Flirt FM on 101.3 FM in Galway and online.

Wireless covers all aspects of radio: analogue and digital broadcasting, community, regional and national broadcasters, niche broadcasting, pirate and alternative radio, podcasting, questions of ownership and diversity and aspects of radio’s past, present and future. The programme is broadcast from 3-4pm on the first Monday of every month.
