‘In the Mood With Lilly’

A Two-hour Weekly Music
Program on Radio Sofia

‘In the Mood With Lilly’ is a renowned music program presented by Lilly Drumeva-O’Reilly on Bulgarian National Radio. It started back in 2003 on Retro Radio (one of the first Bulgarian private radio stations). In 2007 it moved to Radio Sofia (part of the State National Radio). The title of the show is inspired by Glenn Miller’s famous melody, ‘In the Mood’. The concept was to provide high-quality, tasteful music and entertainment. Once a week, within 120 minutes Lilly selects songs from different genres (rock’n’roll, blues, country, soul, gospel, disco, folk, pop, R’n’B) and combines them to match a particular theme. Among her best programs were such as ‘Sad songs say so much’, ‘Songs for a rainy day’, ‘Country and rock legends in Heaven’, ‘On the road again’, ‘Family bands’, ‘Colour songs’, ‘Food and drink songs’ and many others. The main focus is on retro music from the last century, hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The program features also live interviews, guest appearances and fresh new music, as well as information about interesting cultural events. Many of the top Bulgarian musicians and celebrities outside the music industry have been special guests on Lilly’s show. Often, she reports about interesting book releases, workshops, seminars and celebrations. The presenter invites also foreign diplomats who share interesting things about their countries and present unique, authentic music. The ambassadors of Ireland, Germany, Romania, Serbia, Hungary, United States, Austria have already been featured on her show. Lilly keeps up-to-date with new trends and informs the audience about upcoming events and interesting news.
