    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.




    The Cork band scored big success with their debut album 'Trains Boats & Planes', and the series of EPs that preceeded it. They appeared on Top Of The Pops, and headlined the second stage at the Glastonbury festival. Their 1997 album 'Grand Parade' was set to be another album for them, but due to a number of complications and delays, it didn't have the impact that it should have. Dan features tracks from the album on The Alternative all this week.
