Howard Myers

Howard's Country Way

Howard was born in the late 1950's in an industrial part of the North-West of England. From an early age he was exposed to music, his father being a talented musician, playing the accordion on a semi-professional basis and having a fine singing voice. He learned to play a variety of instruments growing up and, at the age of 17 joined a touring band as lead guitar player where he remained for the next 5 years. His involvement with music continued over the years and he developed a love and appreciation for all genres of music.

It was of no surprise then, when he moved to live in Dublin some 25 years ago his love of music led him to discover the unique sounds of music created in our talented country. He became involved on a technical level, developing skills as a sound engineer and spent many years touring Ireland with one of Ireland's leading Elvis Tribute Artists. He met his now wife Kathy and her love of Irish Country Music quickly enthused Howard and he became involved as a dance promoter in Dublin and as a DJ specialising in Irish Country music with residential gigs in many of the Capital's leading Dance Venues. He also continued with his stage management career, becoming Production Manager to one of Ireland's Favourites, Mary Byrne.

Howard joined Irish Country Music Radio a year after it's inception in 2010 presenting a regular Sunday afternoon show, going on to present shows every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, including the very popular ''Mooch Around Midnight'' filled with the best of romantic Country Music. He also became involved in production with several commercial radio stations including East Coast FM and Sunshine 106. It was a Sunshine that he promised himself that he would get Irish Country Music to the people of Dublin and succeeded with that promise when for over 3 years he presented the only commercial radio show broadcast in the Capital. This ended when the station narrowed it's range of music broadcast.

Sadly in the Spring of 2017 Howard was diagnosed with an incurable terminal illness which forced him to abandon all of his work commitments later that year. Now retired due to his fragile health Howard has recently returned to Irish Country Music Radio where he delights in bringing his style of presentation to our listeners and playing music that he hopes will appeal to all.
