    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING IN THE RTE 2FM SESSION The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across


    In their own words, Public Service Broadcasting “sample old public information films and archive material and set them to new music. Live, the films are screened simultaneously as laptops are fiddled with, drums are pounded, Theremins are wafted at, guitars are bashed and banjos furiously plucked. Teaching the lessons of the past through the music of the future.”

    The London-based act toured Ireland in May, and stopped by to record this session, and interview with Dan.





    It’s album number three from Julia Holter. So, has she embraced glam, and created a Rock Opera? No, certainly not; ‘Loud City Song’ continues Holter’s exploration of of the ethereal, and drawing inspiration from Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Frank O’Hara. It wouldn’t be outrageous to say that Julia Holter is one of the individual artists making music these days.
