NO ENCORE #086 | LIVE In Galway~!
The show goes on the road as Dave Hanratty and Colm O’Regan take NO ENCORE to Galway for the first time to close out this year’s National Student Radio Conference. In the absence of Craig Fitzpatrick, local heroes Daithi and Gugai step up and make their voices known…
ACT ONE: Dave immediately loses the room with his take on Stranger Things season two, before the legal struggles of the brothers Jedward dominates the news agenda.
ACT TWO: It’s a busy Songs of the Week as N.E.R.D., Rihanna, Hookworms, Sia, Ho99o9, Noel Gallagher, and a particular bemusing effort from U2 make the cut.
ACT THREE: Gugai is blindsided with the toughest test of his managerial career.
ACT FOUR: Fever Ray returns with a surprise album in the form of Plunge. Already a critical darling, does it pass the NO ENCORE grilling intact?
EXIT MUSIC: Proper Micro NV – ‘OBLIVIOUS’
