More about the "O'Connor Radio Show":  On November 5, 1971, the Mike O'Connor Show made its debut. Time raced around the clock every week.  Mike became so involved in visiting with the folks in the studio, the music, sports, and news from home that most of the time he forgot to mention the fact the he sold insurance.  Much to the surprise of Mike and his wife, he LOVED hosting the radio show. Soon he became known around town as Mike O'Connor, radio show host.  And,  oh yes.  He sold insurance too.
 
Breege Looney (owner of The Abbey Pub) joined the program around 1986, and Mike's daughter Siobhainn came on board in 1991.  Mike retired from the show in 2005.  The Mike O'Connor Show, now The O'Connor Show, continues today run by Siobhainn O'Connor with Breege Looney and Margaret O'Connor manning the other mikes.
