As Summer drew to a close in July/August 2014 David O’Sullivan of www.VoiceOverArtist.ie travelled the Cork section of the Wild Atlantic Way. For one week each day he filed 5-10 minute audio-rich reports that aired on two Radio stations in Cork. The segments aired on their flagship morning shows. Each segment took many hours of esearch, travelling, recording, and editing. There was a great reaction to the pieces, with local residents, business people and politicians saying it was great to hear “the gems of their area” featured. Among the many people interviewed was a Cork man who makes being bald look cool; none other than singer Joseph O’Leary from Cork’s once famous Indie band ‘Fred the Band’. He now runs Levis Corner House in Ballydehob village.
