Under Construction

Episode 1 - Lonely Hearts

Episode one was eaten by the station computer. This seems to be a recurring issue...I can tell you that it was a St Valentine's Day special with a little bit of "fuck the far right", and give you an approximate track listing.

I also must tell you that station manager Aoife stepped up and read the punk news for me in her best RTÉ voice - many thanks to her. Dobbo, watch out.




UK hardcore band Last Wishes are playing on Saturday in the Bello Bar with Bitter Pill, Goon Dhc and Lost To Life on support. Also on Saturday there's another hardcore gig. Worn Out, a hardcore band from Cork, are playing upstairs in Whelan's with Harbinger and Pain in Vain on support. Tickets are 13 euro. Sunday at 4pm, The Thrash Blues are playing in the Wild Duck. Tickets are 12 euro.

Not happening this weekend is the Relapse punk festival down in Cork, which has been cancelled for reasons unknown.

Other: This Saturday a major protest has been organized, a Solidarity March against racism and the far right. The march starts from Parnell Square at half one.

The 1815 football club are having a reintroduction to football and a walking football game on Thursday the 22nd, but it's on during my show so you shouldn't go to it. Phone them at 0871648100 if you're interested in their activities.
