The show is a mix of music, consisting of mostly Irish country music, with a flavour of American country, from time to time, a touch of Rock ‘n Roll, and music from the Show band days, something to suit all tastes on the programme, as requested by the shows listeners.
But Irish country is the main ingredient. Not forgetting of course the local artists – new, up and coming talent all deserve a chance and they can get that opening on the Saturday Night Show.
The listeners always enjoy hearing the top artists alongside the locals and all the new Country stars coming on to the Irish Country music scene.
The Saturday Night Show also brings listeners trivia news on the stars of the music scene, whether it’s Irish or American and tributes are paid to the various artists occasionally and also on their anniversaries. Tickets for the odd show are also given away from time to time.
Listeners look forward to hearing the Saturday Night show whether it’s at home, or driving along the roads of Ireland. The Show also has listeners from overseas in England, America, Australia and other countries from time to time. People can tune in their radio to 103.5FM, listen on the internet on www.midlands103.com or download the free app on their phones from the app store.
