Kelly Darcy – Hot Hits

Kelly Darcy is a music and media enthusiast. Having grown up on stage, she decided to explore behind the scenes in college and graduated from DKIT’s BA (Hons) in Production of Music and Audio.

She has always had an interest in radio so towards the end of college, Kelly began going to Liffey Sound 96.4fm every Friday to see how things operate and to sit in on talk show, Lucan Live. Within a couple of weeks, Kelly was hosting one interview per week and getting involved in the full run of the show.

In June 2018 Kelly began her own show Hot Hits which is now dedicated to playing the best of Irish Hip Hop and Urban music. Some weeks you will hear a snip of an interview she has done with an artist and may even be treated to a little live performance!

I am so grateful to Liffey Sound 96.4fm for giving me the chance to explore my dream job and the platform to expand my creativity and bring my vision to life. I hope you enjoy the show!

Stay up to date with Hot Hits and all things Irish Hip Hop on social media @HotHitsKD


Maria Murphy – Lucan Live

My name is Maria Murphy and I present Lucan Live on Liffey Sound FM. Through the medium of conversational interview I discover what is happening in Lucan. Issues that need to be highlighted and stories that need to be told, all form a part of Lucan Live. Adoption, Fostering, Neurological & Psychological Services, Budding Artists, Film Makers, Politicians are among those who have told their story or expressed their opinion on Lucan Live. If you too have a story to tell email: lucanlive@liffeysoundfm.ie

My involvement began when we were seeking a Community Radio licence to broadcast. Once our licence was granted in July 2006, I became a Broadcaster working in the field of current affairs, bringing the stories that matter to Lucan. As Liffey Sound’s Trainer I deliver a QQI Level Three Course in Media Expression to interested groups.



Gary Gibson – Ultrasounds

From the time I wake up in the morning to the moment I go to sleep I am either listening to music, thinking about music or talking about music.

For years I have been compiling mix tapes and now mix CD’s for family, friends and work colleagues.

I love introducing people to different music and hearing back from them as to how they now listen to artists they would never have heard of or listened to before.

Now thanks to Liffey Sound I am living my dream of playing music on the radio to a bigger audience. I hope that everyone enjoys the show and hopefully they will discover some new music and get as much enjoyment out of listening as I do presenting.


Tommy Travers – Tommy’s Top Tunes

I’m delighted that liffey sound gave me the chance to host a show as I’ve always wanted to be on the radio. I started out as a contributor on a sports program before I got a chance to present my own music show.

I still enjoy doing the sport on the weekend but love the chance to come in every Monday evening to play my choice of music and the odd request which I hope the listeners enjoy. So tune in at 6pm on Monday for an hour of great music, lots of variety and even the odd chat.


Terry Callaghan – Blast From The Past

I’m Terry Callaghan and I`ve Been a volunteer with Liffey Sound FM since it began in 2006. I have been a presenter and producer of Blast From The Past since 2007. It’s an oldies music programme featuring the music of the 50s,60s, and 70s.and is broadcast weekly on Saturday mornings at 10am for two hours.


Sarah C – Electro House Sessions

What joy it is to be given the opportunity to be able to play music that has always lifted my Soul!

To captivate and engage listeners to uplifting, melodic, funky house beats, that are not
mainstream, with some underground house classics thrown in, is a pleasure to share and
hopefully, my aim is to make listeners tap their toes or dance it out because music is what it’s all about!

Tune in to Sarah C every Saturday from 7pm to 10pm here on Liffey Sound 96.4FM.
