    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.



    Public Service Broadcast are one of the most inventive acts to come out of the UK for many years. Their debut album ‘Inform, Educate, Entertain’ came our way in 2013, and they followed that a couple of months ago with ‘The Race For Space’. They’re back in Ireland for a couple of live dates, and they’ll be dropping in to chat to Dan on The Alternative.





    The songs from Radiohead's 'OK Computer' re-imagined in reggae/dub may cause alarm, but fear not Easy Star All-Stars did a splendid job! So much so that they received Radiohead's endorsement. Together with an all-star cast, the Easy Star crew's 'Radiodread' album would put a smile on just about anyone's face. Dan put this to the test as he features it as this week's Buried Treasure.
