This week’s show was a bit of a personal throwback. The last time I spoke to either of this week’s guests was about 2005/2006. It was great to catch up with DJ and Producer Arveene to chat about What is Ireland? From 1916 to 2016 and Beyond Arveene’s on the bill with Le Galaxie, Kormac and CiCi at the Red Gallery in Shoreditch on April 22nd.
It was also really good to see Kiernan McMullan. Kiernan is the last person I ever thought that I would meet in London as he is now based in Nashville. It was great to catch up with him and see how the Irish in Nashville are getting on.
Here’s what happened:
1. The London Ear Intro
2. Land Lovers: Springtime for the Mystics
3. Chat with Arveene re: What is Ireland?
4. Le Galaxie: Carmen (Arveene and Misk remix)
5. Kiernan McMullan: Speak Your Mind
6. Chat with Kiernan McMullan (Part 1)
7. Kiernan McMullan: Just Another Line
8. Chat with Kiernan McMullan (Part 2)
9. Kiernan McMullan: Everything is Medicine
10. Chat with Kiernan McMullan (Part 3)
