Midnight Prelude

Mondays 11PM

Presented by Fin McGuire

The Midnight Prelude will settle you down at the end of a busy Monday.
Each week we introduce a Theme and play classic tunes to match it.
Let me paint you a picture, how many gems out there have Cities in the lyrics? Of course “New York” by Frank, how about “New York State of Mind by Billy, “Sweet Home Chicago” by the Blues Brothers or “Loving April in Paris” by Ellie.
What about Politics? I’m thinking “Mississippi Goddam” by Ms. Simone, “Black and Proud” by James or “London Calling” by the Clash.  What are you thinking? Hopefully we may get you thinking here at Midnight Prelude
Your host Fin McGuire will provide a bit of history, background and opinion on the choices…but nothing gets in the way of the Music Emoji
