Podcast & Playlist HWCH Special 3/10/14

For 2 1/2 years we presented Needle Hits The Groove on RTE 2xm and last week’s show was our last. It was our love of music that brought us together on the show and along the way we got to discover and share so much newfound musical treasure. Without doubt the highlight was having some of the best new music makers in Ireland join us in studio for live sessions and chat. To everyone who listened to the show we say thank you and especially to the musicians who shared the trip with us. Until we meet again.

Big love from Ann Marie & Níall.
