The Indie Hour Crash Course #1

April 2, 2008 at 10:37 pm (The Show) ()

We’ve decided to shake things up a bit round at the indie hour towers by bringing you a monthly crash course.  Said crash course will concentrate on a certain aspect of music, be it a scene, a genre of music, behind the scenes work that goes into producing a record, writing about music or dancing about architecture.

We’re delighted to announce our first series is concentrating on Garage and Surf Rock.  To tell us everything there is to know about everything garage, we’ll be joined in the studios by The Revellions, The Urges and The Things.  We’ll be listening to their music as well as the music that influenced them.  It’s going to be educational.  And fun.

So tune in on Thursday at 9pm to 103.2 Dublin City Fm and prepare to be modified.  Or surfed at least.
