You can never talk enough about New York or hear enough about it.
So, no surprise, there’s a new radio show broadcasting weekly from this week and it’s all about New York.
Ah, but through an Irish lens.
The new morning show on WBAI, 99.5 FM kicks off Wednesday, January 7 and is entitled “New York, Thee and We.”
The hosts will be familiar to many. They are John McDonagh, Malachy McCourt and Corey Kilgannon and they will be talking about all things New York and taking phone calls from listeners.
McDonagh, according to a release, has been driving a Yellow Cab in the city for over thirty years, and is well known for his activism and political satire.
Malachy McCourt is at times a professional actor, a saloon keeper, a political candidate, a radio show host who is at times labeled a wit, a published author, a political progressive who is passionate about democracy but all the times a New Yorker.
He is also a loving husband and a father of five, grandfather of eight.
They are joined by weekly guest Corey Kilgannon who has written about the city for The New York Times for twenty years, and pens a weekly column called “Character Study” about the people who make New York City distinctive.
“From bike lanes to horse and carriage from the street to the stables, no one knows the city better,” said the release.
“New York Thee and We” can be heard every Wednesday morning from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on WBAI, 99.5 F.M.
