The lunchtime show kicks off with the ‘Number 1’s @ Noon’ followed by ‘Half a Grand To Beat The Band’ feature, where you can win 500 euro cash if you can name the song snippet live on air. Are your ears sharp enough?…….


Another feature of the show is the Secret Sound of Galway, Ronan plays a sound for listeners to identify and to win our cash prize of €400!! It’s a bit of a head wrecker really!  Check out the list of guesses so far HERE.

To bring the show to a conclusion, Ronan gives a riddle clue. The question is, can you ‘riddle it… just a little bit’?

And then you can listen to it all again!!
