The London Ear on RTE 2XM: Show 1 Sep 18 2013


As you may or may not know, I’ve relocated to London for work but this has given me the opportunity to do a new music show. So I let my unveil ‘The London Ear’. I’m still working on a logo and stuff like that and I’ve been working on an intro for the show.. may still add a little more of it.

Here it is, what do you think?

On this first show, I’m delighted to say that I had the pleasure of chatting to Paul Savage of O Emperor and to Dundalk natives Bold Things, who play the Sebright Arms on Saturday 20th September.. Get down there if you’re in London. I also chose Placebo’s new album ‘Loud Like Love’ as album of the week and played a couple of tracks from that.
