The return of the 8radio.com Music Blog


After a longer hiatus than planned the 8radio.com Music Blog returns!! I know you all really missed this treasure trove of musical gems but fear not normal service has resumed, and will be maintained on a regular basis.

For those of you not familiar with the 8radio.com Music Blog it is the place where we bring you some of the very best new Irish music, album reviews, career retrospectives, we will also look forward to some of the wonderful acts coming to Dolans and look back at some of the fantastic gigs that take place in our numerous venues.

In order to get us back on track we will simply start with the latest episode of Sounds from a Green World which is brought to you every week (Sat 8am/Wed 9pm) by John Loftus on 8radio.com and supported by Dolans.

On this week’s show we feature Let It Run the crackin’ new single from Fox Jaw who play the Kasbah Social Club on Saturday, October 5th. There is also a whole host of fresh new Irish tunes from Lilla Vargen, Moncrieff, The Late David Turpin, Elly D and Roisin Murphy. There is a selection of tracks from our Irish Album of the Month for September, which is ‘Primero’ from A Band Called Paul and we have a superb remix of Delorentos’ single from 10 years ago S.E.C.R.E.T. the anniversary of which is being celebrated by the band with an Irish tour later this year, including a date in the Warehouse on December 19th.

All that and a whole pile more, so sit back and enjoy 90 minutes of just great Irish music and we’ll be back with some more blogging and musical goodness very soon.
