Adam Ant - Back and Forth, Dan Hegarty The Alternative, 10.00pm, RTÉ 2fm
Dan looks at the various stages of Mr Ant’s musical output. His latest album, released in January, had the rather charming title of Adam Ant is The Blue Black Hussar In Marrying The Gunner's Daughter. While the single, Cool Zombie, may have wowed the dedicated Ant fans out there, it certainly did not make waves in the mainstream.
Adam Ant was born Stuart Leslie Goddard in London in 1954 and made his name in the Eighties with Adam and the Ants, scoring 10 UK top ten hits from 1980 to 1983, including three number ones. His best-known hits are Stand and Deliver and Prince Charming. Since 2010, Adam has been actively touring in England, the USA and Australia www.adam-ant.com
