This Christmas Eve on Radio 1, Colm Flynn will be bringing you songs, sounds and stories from one of the most magical cities in the world at this time of the year, New York. Broadcasting from studios next to the Empire State Building, fashion designer Don O’Neill will be joining Colm to talk about producing a dress for the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, and how he had to keep her pregnancy top-secret for weeks! World-renowned guitarist Gerry Leonard will be telling Colm how a chance move from Ireland to New York lead to an incredible 15-years performing on the road with David Bowie. The Banner county’s Caoimhe Green will be popping into studio to lift the curtain on life in the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Hotel where she picked up her first job straight out of college, and now rents apartments to the rich and famous in Manhattan. Colm will be taking a stroll down 5th Avenue with the head buyer for Diane von Furstenberg and Dublin native, Jemma Cassidy. There will also be music performed in Central Park, sounds of the Irish bars across the city and a few surprises! Be sure to join Colm Flynn from New York this Christmas Eve!
