It’s great having a four-day weekend! I’m fully of the opinion that if we had longer weekends or a four-day week, that it would cut down on unemployment and everyone would have a little bit more time to do what they really wanted to. Using every Saturday as a rest day for the previous week leaves you with one day to have fun. Who’s with me?
Interview with writer/playwright Sue Healy
Today on The London Ear, I chat to Irish playwright, Sue Healy. Sue’s play ‘Cow’ is on tonight (April 15) in the Etcetera Theatre, over the Oxford Arms pub in Camden at 945pm.
Cow is ‘An entertaining light comedy that also mulls contemporary issues including immigration, perceptions of women and infertility’. It’s also got a bit of a DJ Carey obsession going on.
Sue has a fantastic CV of achievements, you can read all about her work on her website and you can follow Sue on Twitter.
Keep an eye out for more ‘Cow’ dates this summer!
Interview with Moses from Bokito
Get two lads from Kildare, three from lads from the UK, a touch of hip hop and afrobeat vibes, put it altogether and you end up with Bokito.
I played their track ‘Better at getting Worse’ on the show and you know what? I absolutely love it. It’s a fantastic debut release so I had to get chatting to the guys behind the sound and find out what is going on.
You can find out more about the band on Facebook, Twitter and on Instagram.
They play The Tram in Tooting on April 22nd and Whelan’s in Dublin on April 28th.
