Déaglán O'Callaghan with Country Folk playing Irish, country, folk and Australian When Declan O’Callaghan was attending school at St. Laurence O’Tool in Dublin’s Sheriff Street in his early years, the music tastes of all the students was invariably the all pervasive pop/rock of English and American artists. Irish music of any sort rarely got a look in. For Declan, and for the youth of Ireland, all’s changed utterly. Now Irish music is no longer considered old-fashioned and out off date. The Irish youth now appreciate their culture, music and openly embrace and enjoy all Irish music. Declan stresses he likes to play all types of music on his program, however his own personal favourites are such as Bill Whelan, Frances and Mary Black, Christy Moore, Kieran Goss, Jim Mc Cann, Dubliners, Paddy Reilly and many more. Declan also loves giving new artists air play. Declan has spent many years on Australian radio, producing and presenting the longest running Irish three hour show. During this time, Declan introduced many Irish artists to his large Australian listeners. Now living back in Ireland. Declan is reconnecting with his love of music and radio

Mustang Mitch and his cousin Floyd F-150 are a couple country boys from the middle of nowhere, Tennessee. Before getting into radio, Mitch worked every job under the sun from shining shoes, to driving a truck. Through his many jobs he's had a couple brushes with superstardom. He once shined Keith Whitley's boots at an airport in New Mexico, he plowed a garden for George Jones, worked as a roadie for the Oak Ridge Boys, and was even punched in the face by Burt Reynolds.
Floyd on the other hand has never held a job, and many wonder how Floyd has been able to support himself over the years.
Mitch has been homeless, and has slept several nights in rest stop bathrooms all across the United States. He draws from these experiences to deliver stories to his audience that no one else can. Mitch prides himself on being a world class entertainer. When he isn't on the radio hosting the Mustang Mitch Show, he enjoys working on his car Trigger, fishin', writing love letters to Shania Twain, going to flea markets, watching game shows, and touring with his band.
