Sunday Afternoon with Simon Delaney brings the sound of musicals to RTÉ Lyric FM

Changes are coming to weekends on Lyric FM…

RTÉ Lyric FM has announced a new addition to their schedule, Sunday Afternoon with Simon Delaney.

Simon Delaney:

“I’ve been an avid RTÉ lyric fm listener for years, and whether it’s Marty Whelan keeping me company in the car on the morning commute or the brilliant Movies and Musicals with Aedín Gormley, there’s always something that tickles my music taste buds. I’m beyond excited to bring a new show to lyric fm’s loyal listenership every Sunday afternoon. If your family are like mine and plan to chill out for the day, the music on our new show will keep you company.”

The Irish radio station welcomes stage and screen actor Simon Delaney to broadcast on Sunday afternoons from 1-4 pm and indulge in a perfect musical blend for weekend listening. Whether you’re a swingin’ cat with an ear for jazz or a lover of classical favourites, Simon will keep the great tunes and easy chat flowing.

Simon Delaney:

“Of course, being a musical theatre fan there will be flashes of West Side Story and Miss Saigon, and with a dad who played in the showband era, the crooners won’t be far away either! No show would be complete without the vast array of classical favourites, from concerts to the opera stage, everyone from Vivaldi to Pavarotti will feature. The chance to get to share my music tastes with the lyric fm audience is hugely exciting, and I can’t wait to engage with them over the airwaves. One thing’s for sure, we’ll laugh the way, right up until your Sunday roast is ready!”

Head of the radio station Sinéad Wylde noted ‘Simon has been a friend to RTÉ lyric fm for some time and we are now delighted to welcome him officially into the RTÉ lyric fm family. He has been working closely with producer Ian McGlynn in developing a new show for Sunday afternoons and along with his warm presentation style, sense of fun and mischief, he will bring his knowledge of musical theatre, movies, stage and screen to every Sunday’
