Athlone Community Radio proudly presents the broadcasting of the documentary The Golden Voice of Athlone, about Count McCormack, the greatest Irish tenor in the world.
Tune in on 88.4 on February 23 from 6pm to7pm or on Saturday February 26 from 2.30pm. This valuable musical programme was produced by Athlone Community Radio with the support of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
The majority of the programme was recorded in the home of McCormack devotee Noel Henry, who played McCormack’s operatic, musical, and traditional songs on the gramophone and supplied his own commentary highlighting his voice qualities. The script was written by the local historian Gearoid O’Brien and read by Fionnuala O’Connell. Sound and co-production was done by Terry Donovan and Mary Lennon, produced and edited by Irena Cvetkovic.
