When Brendan Balfe presented the first series of his acclaimed The Irish Voice, no-one could have foreseen the public reaction. Balfe’s extraordinary compendium of sound – the history of the last 50 years as heard on the wireless – captured the imagination of thousands of listeners. The second series was just as rewarding, as clip after clip reeled in the passing years. Now RTÉ Radio 1 is proud to present The Irish Voice, a beautiful new CD set compiled from the original radio programmes.
