‘POETRY PLEASE': DAMIEN MOLONY RETURNS TO BBC RADIO 4 FOR BLOOMSDAY SPECIAL

Damien is returning to BBC Radio 4’s Poetry Please, in a special programme celebrating Bloomsday.

The broadcast marks the annual event in honour of Irish writer James Joyce and his book Ulysses, which is set during just one day (16 June) with a protagonist Leopold Bloom.

Damien will be reading poems by Joyce and contemporary Irish poet Paul Durcan.

The programme is hosted by radio veteran Roger McGough, produced by Sally Heaven and will also feature a varied selection of listeners’ requests for poets including Kenneth Slessor, Julia Darling and Fannie Stearns-Gifford.

Poetry Please shared a photo of Damien in the studio recording for the programme on their Twitter page.

 



This is Damien’s third time giving voice to the poems of literary greats on Poetry Please and his seventh appearance on BBC Radio 4.

He made his debut on the channel in 2013, reading short story Student Stories, followed by BBC NI Radio Drama’s production of William Trevor’s The Hill Bachelors and Jim Sheridan’s adaptation of The Commitments. In his previous two appearances on Poetry Please Damien gave readings of W.B. Yeats poetry. More recently he was the actor reader in a series showcasing new Irish writing, reading Eimear McBride’s short story Me and The Devil.

Damien’s Poetry Please programme will be available to listen to live and on catch-up worldwide via BBC iplayer radio, be sure to tune in!

 

Please Poetry | Bloomsday airs on BBC Radio 4, 4.30pm Sunday 14 June. To listen to Damien live and on catch up, click here (works internationally).

Not a great fan of poetry but thats the joy of 'appreciating' Damien, venturing to new experiances (if you know what I mean)

I'm not very familiar with poetry either Kallie but Damien's readings are just dreamy. I can't pretend to always understand the poetry but it sounds lovely when Damien is reading it! I think poetry is 'better' when read aloud

Definitely, especially with feeling. Hopefully will stay awake long enough to hear them all... I usually have trouble sleeping but Damien makes me so relaxed when reading Raven, I still have yet to get to CD2 without falling asleep...

I can't believe you still haven't heard all of Raven yet! Maybe you'll have to listen during the day with strong coffee!
