Two Door Cinema Club live :The Alternative, 10.00pm, RTÉ 2fm Two Door Cinema Club are without doubt one of the biggest success stories that the island of Ireland has produced in many years. The band’s debut album ‘Tourist History’ was released in 2010, and went on to win the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year (2010).
Their second album ‘Beacon’ was released in September 2012 and debuted at number one on the Irish Albums Chart. John Walshe is standing in for Dan Hegarty this week, and he’ll have the highlights from this set.
The set was recorded at the Haldern festival by Recorded and offered by Westdeutscher Rundfunk Köln - Rockpalast. http://twodoorcinemaclub.com/ http://www.eurosonic.net/
New Movies and David Sedaris: Arena, 7.00pm, RTÉ Radio1
New films reviewed tonight include We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks and Pacific Rim.
The programme also meets American essayist and New York Times writer David Sedaris who talks about his new book of essays, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, Sedaris takes the reader on a an eye-opening journey.
He rails against the habits of litterers in the English countryside (hwo woudl he get on here?) and marvels over a disembodied human arm in a taxidermist's shop.
