    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from around Europe. Buried Treasure: 'SK1' by Simple Kid, plus New Valley Wolves' Back & Forth.



    This is one of the unsung classic albums since the turn of the century. Cork born, London-based Kieran Mac Feely had a way of putting songs together like few others. 'SK1' is the first of two albums that he released before his announced that he was going to cease making music. Dan will be playing tracks from this truly outstanding album all week on The Alternative.
