TOM PRENDERGAST: ON THE RADIO

TOM PRENDERGAST - BAR/NONE FOUNDER


Tom Prendergast deserves his own plaque somewhere in Hoboken.  As one of the founders of both Pier Platters (the town's pre-eminent record store in the Eighties and Nineties)  and Bar/None Records, he's one of the unsung heroes of the Mile Square City's music scene.  These days, Tom lives in his native Ireland but he's keeping his hand in music with a weekly radio show called "Last Bus Home" on Limerick City Community Radio, 99.9 FM. The program offers an eclectic mix that ranges from jazz and American standards to indie rock. Last Bus Homes airs on 99.9FM at 10:30 pm on Sunday nights on but you can listen any time online at www.mixcloud.com/LCCR.

Tom:  This isn't the first time I've done a radio show. I worked at a pirate radio station in the 1970's, but not since then.Limerick City Community Radio is three years old and I've been with it for two and a half years. I got on there by simply asking!  Thank you for listening and please do tell your friends.
