About Northern Sound

Listen to the online radio of Northern Sound Radio live, which started its radio service in 1989 alongside with its twin-station Shannonside FM. The two stations have partly simulcasted programmes in their schedule besides their own programmes, Northern Sound is the territorial responsible local radio station for counties Cavan and Monaghan, and is in the ownership of Radio Kerry Holdings.
The radio’s target audience is the adult age-group, so its broadcast is built from more speech related programmes, and as operating as a local radio, the discussed topics are mainly about the locally relevant current affairs. The playlist is a low key selection of pop music from the last 40 years, quilted with plenty country and folk music.
The broadcaster's news bulletins bring local news, sports, travel and weather mainly about its editorial area, and also national and international news are aired.
The station wakes the life-appetite of the North on weekdays from 7am to 9am with "The Breakfast Roll" morning show led by Sean McCaffrey. The weekend mornings are ignited on Saturday from 8am to 10am and on Sunday from 8am to 9am with "The Weekend Breakfast Show".

Northern Sound slogan: "The Spirit of Cavan & Monaghan"
