    Music & chat with a band from Seattle

    It is hard to believe that it is now 20 years since one of America's most iconic rock stars, Kurt Cobain, was found dead in his Seattle home.  Kurt fronted Nirvana - arguably the most influential band of a generation, with their album Nevermind being one of the best selling records of all time.

    Nirvana's original drummer was Chad Channing, who now fronts a band called 'Before Cars' who are on a European tour this month. They join John here in studio for a chat & performance.

    {Before Cars are playing Sat July 5th Monroe's Galway, Sunday July 6th in the Sugar Club, Dublin}

    for more information on Before Cars go to www.beforecars.com
