what a great presenter you are Marthy. I find your selection of music and your wit very relaxing especially when I am driving in heavy traffic. It is soothing. Keep it going. Well done

@ John Ford - You can listen to thousands of radio stations at your bedside if you can afford an internet radio like this one -

I love Marty in the morning. Martys music choices makes for very easy listening.His affable good humour and interaction with his listeners are the hallmark of a very good presenter indeed

I wish that RTE Lyric FM was broadcast on the main UK range of channels. i.e. along with the BBC range, Classic FM etc. I want to listen to it on my bedside radio when I am away from my PC. It really is a fantastic station, Classical but not too Classical. I live near the south coast of England.
