The battle against extreme humidity was resumed last night at Raidió Na Life for the weekly Standard Radio sesh. Cold beverages, electric fans and herbal medicine were the order of the day.
We're back next saturday at the same time, when I'll be joined on the wheels by Bob.

Last week's Standard Radio never happened due to some botched rewiring of the mixing desk, which left us with an outgoing signal that sounded like a transistor radio in a tin bucket. Presuming all gremlins have been removed from the studio, we're back on the air tonight at the usual time of 9PM (GMT).

After another little break, Standard Radio returns on Raidió Na Life, 106.4 FM, saturday night.
I'll be rolling out some old broken beat favourites alongside the more contemporary vinyl; bear with me as I'm currently operating on 50% - my good arm is in a sling after a 5 AM altercation with some aggressive furniture.
Tune in from 9PM (GMT) till 10.30 for mono-dextrous musical martyrdom.
If you're beyond the pale, you can listen on the livestream HERE.
