Memo to RTÉ radio queenpin (and country singer with recent Midlands act Cosmic Banditos) Ana Leddy: there is another way to cover arts on the radio.

Axing the dull Eleventh Hour is a start, but Leddy should also tune into Dublin’s Phantom FM, which airs The Kiosk on Saturday mornings.

Nadine O’Regan’s bright and sassy show, which marks its 40th week on air this weekend, takes in music, movies, poetry, theatre, books and everything in between, using just a pinch of the resources that RTÉ Radio One can call upon. Now, that’s what we call arty radio.
