A pop-up radio station which was launched to promote mental health awareness will have an entire show dedicated to the late Tony Fenton (inset).

RTE producer Sinead Lynch, who was Fenton's girlfriend, is dedicating a show on Upbeat on Air to the late Today FM DJ.

She will be presenting the Night Show from 7pm to 9pm with Trevor Keegan, and the majority of the programme will centre on her former colleague in thanks to what she learned from Tony.

The Upbeat On Air initiative was launched yesterday and will run until Friday. It can be heard online and in Dublin city and county on 94.3MHz.

Run by the St Patrick's Mental Health Service, it aims to promote awareness about the issue of mental health with plenty of volunteers lining up to broadcast on the nation's airwaves.

Among those listed as taking part are presenters Aidan Power and Ruth Scott. Radio presenter Rebecca Horan will also be on the station, and highlighted the importance in discussing the issue.

"Support and promotion of mental health recovery and well-being is important, and talking about mental health is important, whether it is on the airwaves, or conversations in schools, offices and pubs," she said.
