Thank you so much to everyone at Radio Nova, all the management and staff especially Kevin, Clint, Elaine and Fiona and everyone involved behind the scenes. Thanks to Danu and Dave for their voices every week, the listeners of course and finally I am so lucky that so many Irish acts trust me with their interviews and songs and stories so that I can entertain and share from the perspective of a fan of music to other fans of music.“
