Host of special shows bring festive fun to beat this Christmas

The festive season is well and truly upon us!

Throughout Christmas, Beat will be doing its very best to put a positive spin on the rollercoaster year that was with numerous festive shows.

Here’s a taster of what’s to come:

On Christmas Eve, Niall and Sho will have a very special Beat Breakfast filled with festive fun. The show will see the grand finale of Beat’s Holiday Haul competition with City Square Shopping Centre. One lucky listener will walk away with all 24 prizes, and the Beat Fleet will be on hand to deliver the presents on Christmas Eve morning!

The Beat Breakfast Crew is also here on Christmas Day with a special show from 7am, including festive editions of Beat the Bomb and Dean’s Deck. Open your presents with Niall & Sho!

On St. Stephen’s Day, Orla Rapple will host a special Christmas edition of The Sunday Grill, including an interview with the Waterford man who starred in one of Netflix’s biggest 2021 hits and a look at this year’s hot trend of rollerskating!

Later on St. Stephen’s Day, the Beat Anthems Crew will be taking to the airwaves to bring the party to your house. Megan Phelan kicks it off at 6pm, followed by Dave Cronin at 8 and Darren Rice from 10pm.

Irish music connoisseur Rob O’Connor will be here from 8pm on Monday December 27th and doing his best to whittle down his favourite Irish albums of the year to a Top 10. He’ll also be playing some of the best Irish singles from the last twelve months.
