    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

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


    Theatrical and sometimes controversial, Amanda Palmer is in every sense of the word a performer. She’s one half of The Dresdon Dolls, and more recently touring as part of Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra. The catalogue of music that she’s released speaks for itself. Dan brings you her Five-Track Shuffle, which may give you an idea of where some of her influences originate.
