Last Night 12/03/2011

After a few weeks away from the radio show, It felt good to be back last night.
The working week, the steady drag of life in Dublin these days, and the lack of decent regular nights on the weekends make the show something I look forward to each week - by sunday I'm already thinking of what to play on the next one - and in a city where commercial and watered down versions of the music we love now dominate the ever-dwindling clubs, it's felt like a lifeline lately.

To be honest, if it wasn't for Raidio Na Life we'd be pissing in the wind; the Internet may offer opportunities I could only have dreamed of back in the 80's when I first took to the turntables, but many great shows can get lost in all the marketing hype and downright overpopulation of the ether. FM is still important, and I would hate to be growing up in Dublin now with the serious dearth of choice on the radio, so big up 106.4 for the last few years.

We'll keep it rolling as long as the listeners keep listening, and as long as the state continues to fund what has become the only place left in Dublin for underground music on yer radio. So a special thanks to Muiris, Mark, Fearghal and of course Karla for the opportunity.

Back to the music, just short of an hour of this and that from myself, followed by Bob on the final 40. We're back next week for the Paddy's weekend, which is essentially the usual standard runnings, but dyed green for the tourists.

Standard Radio Saturday

Okayyy..(Badness Voice)..let's try this again.

We had to abandon the show last week. We got in the door of the radio station to find the old crusty Stanton warrior replaced by a shiny new Rane mixer; great news, but unfortunately only the turntables were hard-wired into the desk, so no mixer meant no mix. Let's hope things have been fixed for this week.

Another weekend then, so it's time for me to snap out of it and start thinking radio again, and pull a few plates from the crates. As ever, kick off is at 9 PM, with the final whistle being blown by 10.30. 90 minute TDK styles.

If you're in Dublin, tune in to 106.4 FM on your radio - otherwise lock in via the Livestream.

Slimzee - Rinse FM 01/03/2011

March already? Hard to believe; the blue skies and sunshine are doing their best to convince us that spring has sprung - but as soon as she sets the fog and frost are telling a different story. Still, here's a nice surprise to kick off the month - none other than Slimzee stepped up and filled in for BBK this week on Rinse, reminding us why he is the don. If you missed it, you're in luck. Thanks to DJ Shandy for the link.
