RTÉ Lyric FM - Where Life Sounds Better

RTÉ lyric fm is an Irish classical-music radio station, owned by the public-service broadcaster Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ). The station, which is based in Limerick, was launched in 1999 and is available on FM in Ireland, on satellite, on Sky Digital in Ireland and the United Kingdom, and via the Internet.

Aodan Ó Dubhghaill, Head of RTÉ lyric fm radio internet, said: “Without doubt RTÉ lyric fm is for listeners that are looking for a real alternative. With an increase in people tuning to the station ‘where life sounds better’ across weekends, there is something to satisfy everyone’s taste for specialist or more mainstream music.”

...and of course not to overlook the versatile John Kelly and the always surprising Bernard Clarke!! Incidentally, obsit omen, it's great to see that this thread is free from obnoxious trolls! Best to all.
Listening in San Miguel de Salinas, loving it, Keep her goin Marty.
Chris Black , Thank you for the complement we try our best here and we are glad you are enjoying the music .
In the midst of all the madness what a release Marty in the morning wonderful mix of music, chat and Hugo of course. Thank you.
Sitting here in Mataró, Catalunya at 15:46 on 19th March 2020 listening to LyricFM is like finding an oasis in the middle of all he madness.
I have been tuning in here in HK for nearly 20 years to Lyricfm and find it most relaxing. Turning on "Music through the Night" at 8 am HK time (Midnight in Ireland) sets up the day nicely. I used to enjoy Trish Taylors morning programme until she moved to a Sunday afternoon programme. Now of course it is Marty that I enjoy every weekday and George Hamilton scores on Sunday - not so many travel stories nowadays George! Bye the way does Trish do any broadcasting now. Many thanks to all at Lyric, keep up the good work.
Great show altogether ..... :) I wish the mp3's attempt of format and bit rate could be improved ! .. to do justice to the music that's all, especially these kind of frequencies, deserve better
I still miss the presenter of Gloria on Sunday mornings. Tim Thurston was his name. I never did find out why he was made redundant overnight especially as he was doing a magnificent job. He was brilliant at jazz too. Does anyone know why RTE got rid of him?
Agree with John Sheehan - Vlad’s show is a wonderful exploration of music. A feast for the ears. The programming is superb. Marty in the Morning is brilliant, as are Liz, Aideen, Mystery Train, Blue of the Night, et al. Thank you
Vlad Smishkewych is a National Treasure - should be given honorary citizenship for his contribution to culture.
We live in Melbourne, Australia. Visited Ireland last August and used to listen to Lyric whilst driving in our rented car. Great music and presenters. Now, back home, we listen to Marty because he begins at our 6pm. Considering visiting again next year but only to Dublin to visit the new Literature museum. X
Super relaxing Music, a class part from mainstream radio. Congratulations to all the Lyric FM team and continued success going forward.
Lyric fm is the best radio station in Ireland both marty wheelan morning show and Lorcan Murray's drive time show are superb along with aideen gormleys weekend musical and movies matinees.
Love Lyric from the day it started. Listened to Marty every morning. Sent in loads of birthday and special requests down the years which were always played. My special brother John’s face lights up when he hears his name mentioned. You make his day. Your presenters are so kind, informative and entertaining. We leave the radio in the kitchen on permanently. We can never thank you enough. You make our day. Carmel.
Why would RTE in its lack of wisdom want to close such a gem as lyric fm Such a shame.
What would do without Marty & Lyric fm No matter where we are in the world My husband & I listen to him Brilliant morning listening Keep it up
Loving your show, Marty here in Perth West Australia,..but at times you sound a bit like my old friend Sir. Terry Wogan RIP. Thank you for all the great music.
From Oakland, California -- I've been listening to RTE regularly since a year ago, when I took my first trip to your wonderful and lovely country. I really enjoyed Marty in the Morning during my visit there. Lyric is awesome! :-) Keep it up.
Congrats to all the team in Lyric fm Love you Marty...
Blue of the night - with Brendan Clarke is the best , at the moment I'm listening to Aedin Gormly's Sunday Matinee 1pm - 4pm , heavenly
