First Play // Playlist


March, already! How did that even happen?

As you can probably tell, I’m super excited about festival season. Anyway, throughout the next few weeks I’ll be playing lots and lots of artists, bands and DJ’s that will be performing at our wonderful festivals across the country.

We also had a fantastic First play studio session from the amazingly talented Bob Skeleton. They’re playing The Roisin Dubh, Galway Friday 10th March 2017.

Here’s the Vodafone First Play playlist from Sunday 4th of March 2017.


First Play // Studio session // Bob Skeleton


Happy Sunday,

The super talented Bob Skeleton popped into me at iRadio this evening to showcase their brand new track.


They’ll be playing the Roisin Dubh in Galway this coming Friday (March 10th). They’re superb live.

You can listen back to their studio session here:

I thought it was about time I started a blog…

I pretty much spend all of my spare time listening to new music, so I kinda thought to myself why not write about it too.

I’m Louise, a radio broadcaster, DJ, Voice over artist and MC living in Galway Ireland.

I DJ in various clubs and bars across Ireland and broadcast radio shows on the very popular radio station iRadio. If you come across me, make sure to say hi!

Through my show Vodafone First Play, I get the opportunity each week to interview amazing Irish and international talent. They call into me at the station and showcase some of their amazing tracks. I’ll be documenting some of these amazing bands and artists through the blog.

I also get sent sooooo much new music weekly, it’s a bit of a shame not to talk about it in a little bit more debth.

If you’re in a band yourself and you would like me to review your music, get in touch. You can mail me at:, I’m also on Facebook and Twitter

I hope you enjoy my blog, and enjoy the music you find here.
