The Indie Hour Says Goodbye…

Heathers – What’s Your Damage?

…to badly updated blogging.  And, yes, to the radio as well.  But only for a bit.

Tomorrow night I’m delighted to say we will be joined by Heathers. At 9pm on 103.2 Dublin City FM, we will be playing through their bleedin’ brilliant album Here, Not There, which will definitely be at my Best Of End of Year list thing.  It’s class.  I’m really looking forward to chatting to Heathers about the album as well as their US Tour with Ghost Mice, from which they returned today.

Tomorrow also hails the last indie hour for about a month.  I’m going to take a wee break to regroup and freshen up the show a bit.  The second Thursday in July was my fourth year broadcasting on Dublin City FM.  In those years, the format hasn’t changed too much so I think it’s time for a bit of a shake-up.  I’ve also only ever missed about 7 Thursdays in all those weeks so I’m looking forward to going out for a beer after work on a Thursday should I feel like it!

I’ll be back on Thursday nights from 9 to 10pm on 103.2 FM from September 4th onwards.  I’ll be popping by this blog anyway in the meantime with updates of gigs and all that.  I’ll have to do a bit of a Mantua post-festival thingy.  And I still have to post the last three weeks of the show as podcasts!

So in the meantime, do tune in tomorrow night.  Especially if you haven’t heard Heathers yet.  They’re completely amazing.  Gush!

    Hey Tim – I’ll probably see you on the 14th of August in the Project Arts Centre for their gig so! I’ve just arrived home from the show, it was really fun and they were lovely. I’ll get the mp3 after I return from Mantua. As well as the last three weeks of the show 🙂

    Una and Eddie – thanks a million! I love chocolate digestives. I might bring some jaffa cakes too to this tea in. Hope to see both of you soon outside of the blogosphere!
