Stephen Kennedy on the Radio

This Sunday evening will see Stephen Kennedy take to the airwaves, with his full to brimming show on the theme of Male:Female relationships - complete with mystery guest phone ins, and real acting and everything.

Stephen studied English, Philosophy, Drama and Library studies, before working as a clog maker in Holland, and then finding his way into IT on his return to Ireland. He's written and directed several plays, at college, at Dublin Fringe Festival, as well as in Temple Bar's New Theatre - where he has a few more plays coming up soon. He's also a film maker - with a short film currently in production, and if that wasn't enough runs monthly arts clubs in the city centre and has done for the last few years - (one of which - Nighthawks, I'll be appearing at tomorrow night, live and in person, and oh my god the nerves). He's also a poet - and has had some poems published in the Stinging fly and was short listed for last years Hennessey Award with his poem "Do You Know What Really Annoys The Arse Off Me?’

I haven't worked out what you're doing tomorrow night but you'll be great and good luck. Remember, however, to never follow TFE's advice on alcohol.

You're always brilliant, so no need to worry. Lots of deep breaths, imagining everyone naked. And by god girl, didn't we play the main stage at Castlepalooza! This will be a doddle. Sorry i won't be there :( Boo, hoo.

Titus - you and me both! but getting there, hope the washing machine gets well soon.
Thanks Oub, do you think I should still wear the wings? the sparkly goldy dress? the tiara? would it be too much?
