IN THE BEGINNING….I started on radio sometime around 1997 (I think) on a small radio station called Solar FM. The station was a dance music station run by the infamous Tracey Lee in an attic room beside a bunch of shops on St Peters Rd in Walkinstown, Dublin. They ran an ad on the radio that went something along the lines of “if you see yourself broadcasting to hundreds of listeners, then get in touch”, so…. I did.
“So here I am, back where it all started on radio for me about 23 years ago with the Freedom crew. Things were very different back then. It was around 1998, I was playing in clubs around Dublin at the time but couldn’t pass the opportunity to join Simon and Andy and the rest of the freedom family on this fantastic station. I stayed at Freedom for around 2 years and moved on to Hot Radio and eventually Nova Dance but as time went on and djing became more popular the scene became saturated and I moved away from it. Older (yes) and wiser (no) have I become since then? Move forward almost 20 years and the team is back bigger and better and no cold shed to sit in either :)
Origionaly from Clonmel in Tipperary Eamonn can be heard on Radio Stations across Ireland and the UK and also DJ's across the country. Eamonn always had a huge love of music with Armin Van Buuren and Tiesto as his influences Eamonn brings his personality and passion to Freedom FM where he presents The Friday Night Mix from 8-10pm
I Joined the freedom FM crew when I was only about 17 years old. I sent in a letter ( yes, a letter, with like an actual pen) into the mark Brennan show asking him to play ” olive – you’re not alone”. Just so happens, my geography teacher at the time heard my request on the radio and told me she knew mark. Long story short, Mark Brennan and DJ power arranged for me to come down to the freedom FM studio to sit in on one of the shows. I was so quiet and shy at the time, but Louise Jordan took me under her wing.
