Homespun is the main weekend platform programme that showcases local talent. Noel Grogan features regular in-studio and/or phone interviews with emerging Irish talent and features music predominantly in the folk, traditional and country music genres.
Homespun also promotes venues where local talent is promoted to ensure that we give the hundreds of talented musicians across the region the airspace they deserve. At Midwest Radio we’re VOCAL about all things LOCAL!Noel was born in a small town about three miles from Ballyhaunis. He attended Bekan National School and went on to study at St. Nathys College in Ballaghadereen.
Noel says that since 1967 he has been studying in the "School of Hard Knocks" or the big bad world, as he also likes to call it. He worked for thirty-three years in a local firm called WBC before retiring this position in 2001.
Noel joined the Midwest Radio team in August 2006 when he became a presenter on their online radio station Midwest Irish Radio. Here he anchored a daily show called "On The One Road". Noel now spreads his talents and love for radio between presenting programmes on Midwest’s local radio and their online service. According to Noel, it's been a wonderful experience and he has still managed not to give his age away– and nor will he! “You’ll just have to keep guessing!” he adds.
