Dublin Digital Radio keep pumping out the good stuff, the perfect antidote to boredom and the prescribed spontaneity of daytime radio.
This week is absolutely no different, with new shows announced by the week at this point. DDR’s Cormac writes:
It’s been busy here at DDR towers with new shows coming left, right and centre. Last weekend we were chuffed to host production, CDJ and turntable workshops along with our good pals at Gash Collective.
Some new shows we are now lucky to announce include “Vital Signs” hosted by Neil O’Connor of Somadrone & Cian Murphy of I Am the Cosmos. Irish music hero New Jackson started his monthly show last Tuesday, catch his new record coming out on All City Records April 30th too!
As for something a bit different, last week we had the start of The Recommendation Game, a weekly show where two film lovers take turns to recommend a film the other has not seen, they watch and then meet to discuss it. Spoilers are a given.
The Repeater crew had a great guest mix of all original material from upcoming label Patrúin, keep an eye out as it’s hot!
This weekend we have a new show from Dublin based D, who probably most know as DJ Deece, with Deece Is the Word, and then on Sunday, Greg & Russell from This Greedy Pig are back with their show “Move Slow.”
Get to know. Get listening.
Coming in relatively late are some of the highlights of recent on Dublin alternative radio station Dublin Digital Radio. Since kicking off late last year, the station has attempted to bring different voices and sounds to the Irish radio landscape, with shows recorded live in Jigsaw in Dublin, and pre-taped around the country.
Writes collective member Brian Hyland:
The Dublin Digital Radio roster expanded again this week as we launched some new shows including Off Target and Soft Landing Radio, making their debuts on the digital airwaves.
Among our top selections this week were, The Co-Present where host Dwayne Woods caught up with Steven Sharpe and Maija Sofia. Next was One-CP which had SUED label head, SVN in the house before his Dublin gig, well worth a listen. Last but not least, Beneath the Bricks with Breen gave us another stellar mix last Sunday.
Listen live or on-demand here.
Dublin Digital Radio keeps on slowly breathing fresh air onto the Irish (digital) airwaves, with an eclectic selection of live shows from their studio at the Jigsaw arts space and pre-tapes pulled in from around the country.
Streaming above: a selection of the station’s finest few hours this week. Also above: the schedule for the weekend. Get in.

A new week of shows here at DDR. Some highlights included Denise & Leg’s Dublin Punk Radio, last Saturday Staxx Lyrical had Ballymun hip-hop group 5th Element in studio, and Emma Cawley’s show “XXX” looks at Gqom, electronic music from South Africa, with an interview with label manager Craig Pugnetti.
For the weekend ahead some show highlights to keep an eye out for include the Wino Boys’ show “Wah Wah Wadio” on Saturday. While on Sunday we have a new show called “Mullin’ it Over: Obama: A Retrospective” which takes a look back at the highs and lows of his presidency. At 8pm Major Problems boss Barry Redsetta is back on the airwaves, which is not to be missed!
Listen in live, or on-demand.
Following up on our recent guide to Irish artists being supported on the airwaves (itself due an update soon – stay tuned, pardon the pun), comes this, from former You May Like This featuree Caoilian Sherlock.
small town disco – episode 2 features Meltybrains? Sísý Ey GANGLY and a mix of artists that I saw at the Bedroom Community 10th Anniversary in Harpa, only last weekend.
Voices, Interviews and Recordings are of Seamus Heaney, Patti Smith and David Sedaris who kept me company on my travels.
An hour of worthwhile tuneage and poetry. Broadcasting monthly on Dublin Digital Radio.
