Our now-weekly check-in with Dublin Digital Radio brings with it another eclectic selection of on-demand auditory treats and a packed weekend schedule (see above), ahead of the station hitting the road this weekend.
Writes DDR member Brian:
Week 16 has been good and busy for us here at DDR, with plenty of new shows starting and preparations for our first festival appearance at Quarter Block Party well underway.
Some highlights of the past week (embedded above) include Underneath The Orange Tree with host James Rogers and Graham Dundon bringing soulful grooves and afrobeats to the DDR Studio. Check out their first record, dropping soon. ELLLL continues her fine form following the release of her Romance EP with an hour and a half of tough beats, atmospheric techno and bass while Brian Coney of The Thin Air delivered his weekly mixed bag of oddities for his show Death Culture Blues.
Looking ahead to the weekend we are broadcasting from Cork City on Saturday with interviews, live performances and a bit of messin’ in Plugd Records from 2-6pm (your writer included – Mike), before we take over Gulpd Café to play records from 9pm-12am. On Sunday, Shivers radio returns from 5-8pm and Aidan Hanratty brings the ambient and drone vibes from 8-10pm.
