Vlad Smishkewych presents early music programme, Vox Nostra on RTÉ Lyric fm, on Sunday mornings from 7am to 10am. He was born in New Jersey to a Spanish mother and a Ukrainian father, and also performs and teaches in the early music sphere.

His most recent one is exceptional,

RTÉ Radio Player

A soft spoken, erudite and enthusiastic broadcaster.

As far as I am concerned he is most welcome and I hope he stays on to ripe old age.

Never heard of him, but as he is taking up a bed here while using a foreign name, can he not do whatever it is he does from where ever he came from and beam it in on longwave or via internet radio and allow us to solve the homelessness crisis? I'd recommend deporting him, but it is hard to know where he should be sent based on your bio.

Back to OP - Lyric is probably the star of Irish broadcast media. Great to see them nurture talent like this.
Honestly, deds, if you get a chance listen back to Sunday's show it is top drawer.

He is a fantastic radio presenter and a font of knowledge. The other week he was playing Danish religious madrigals from the 16th century, things I'd imagine about 4 people in the world have any knowledge of, and he's three of them.

He better stay away from the Limerick Soroptimists or he'll win an award. No way our Home Guard will Handel that.
Agreed - they'd send him Bach as soon as look at him. Poor chap may have to go into Haydn before and after each broadcast.
