A few weeks ago I caught up with Philippa Hanna on tour supporting Anastacia. We found out more about Philippa Hanna, her life, her music, family life. What inspires her to write music. Monday morning I shared my time with Philippa Hanna with Wendy Grace on the Morning Show on Spirit Radio. Here the interview in full via the Spirit Radio mixcloud account:
I have now been with Spirit Radio and in Ireland for just over 6 years. And Spirit Radio has been broadcasting on FM and MW around the country for 5 years. Spirit Radio has a national licence to broadcast Christian Radio across Ireland, yet we need finance to extend our reach beyond the 8 transmission sites we currently have.
Spirit Radio have just launched #RollOutChallenge with listeners estimated at over 200,000 across the country, if every listener took part donating just €5 we could increase our reach across the country!
After 5 years we are We have some good news. After a two year battle, the licences for Kilkenny, Carlow and Athlone have just been released. Agreements for use of masts are in place. We need to urgently raise €20K for some of the equipment still needed.
We have always believed that Christian Radio should be funded by a lot of people all doing a little. The “Spirit Radio Roll Out Challenge” is a simple fundraising tool that we have created. We hope it will mobilise thousands and help us launch broadcasting in Kilkenny, Carlow and Athlone.
Act now, at the rollout challenge website, I have done it, will you? http://goo.gl/IqL36b
What did you enjoy most about the summer months? Have to say that this year in Ireland we’ve had a super summer and definitely the best one I can remember since arriving on this beautiful Island of Ireland 4 years ago. Yes, I’m now entering my 5th year here from last month.
