Limerick City Community Radio (LCCR)
The Mid-West Humanists have broadcast their second radio program today Sunday 04 December 2016, at 15:00 in the afternoon – on Education.
You can listen to this again on LCCR at lccr.ie on Tuesday 06 December 2016 at 19:00.
If you view the LCCR Schedule for Sundays, our program is part of the Community Focus series at 15:00. If you view the schedule for Tuesdays, Community Focus at 19:00 is to be the program in that series already broadcast on the preceding weekend.
Limerick City Community Radio (LCCR) broadcasts on 99.9 megacycles per second on Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 24:00 (midnight) – reception is only within a short distance of Limerick City – and on its website. On weekdays LCCR is only available on its website, for various hours (less than the weekend).
On weekdays the 99.9 megacycles per second channel in the frequency modulation (FM) service on Very High Frequency (VHF) band 2 (87.5 to 108 Mc/s) broadcasts Wired FM, which is the radio station of Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. Thus the radio data signal, on a radio that shows this, will display “Wired FM”, even on Saturdays and Sundays.
How Mid-West Humanists came to be on the radio
Limerick City Community Radio ran 36 hours of sponsored programs by community groups on 31 October to 01 November 2016. LCCR accepted our live studio discussion program in that series.
Broadcast at 21:00 on 31 10 2016
On 01 11 2016 (the day after Program 1), LCCR asked us to make a program to be in the Community Focus series every month.
Broadcast at 15:00 on 04 12 2016
On education – recorded in advance in the LCCR studio.
We interviewed Maria Collins-Harper, who has been involved in securing the new secondary school to open in Limerick in 2018, followed by discussion with 2 Mid-West Humanist and Maria, on what Ireland needs in the education system so that people growing up can be truly educated and also integrated in the society in which people live.
Future programs will be at 15:00 on about every 4th Sunday. The precise Sunday for our next program is not settled yet.
Program 3 will be about the celebration and the celebrations of life.
