This particular recording by The Fat Lady Sings was presumably made live in studio while the band were interviewing with Dave Fanning.

Feile93

On his Sunday show of the August bank holiday weekend Dave Couse got to reminiscing about Feile 1993. It struck me that this was of course 20 years ago and I got to wondering if I didnt have some recordings from RTE 2fm of the festival. The recordings I originally had in mind were actually from Cork Rocks in 1991 but I did uncover one recording from Feile in 1993..

Mark Eitzel – Here Comes The Night (1997)

Posted in interview, live, Music, radio with tags , , , , on February 19, 2013 by Fanning Sessions

Mark Eitzel needs no introduction. Singer with the American Music Club and a successful solo artist, he returns to these shores for an Irish tour this week. If you have yet to see him live don’t pass up this opportunity, if you already have you’ll know what is in store. This interview came on the occasion of a previous visit in 1997 when he played Whelan’s in Dublin. He dropped in to the Radio Ireland studios to talk to Donal Dineen on his ‘Here Comes The Night‘ show and yours truly captured at least some of it.

A House (1990 Interview)

Posted in Fanning, interview, live, radio with tags , , , on January 28, 2013 by Fanning Sessions


Prior to the release of their second album ‘I Want Too Much’ Dave Couse (vocals & guitar), Fergal Bunbury (guitar), Martin Healy (bass), Dermot Wylie (drums) aka A House had a chat with Dave Fanning from London where the band were performing as part of an Irish rock week in The Mean Fiddler. The performance of ‘Violent Love’ at the end is well worth the wait. Dave Couse can of course be heard every Sunday on TodayFM from 10pm until midnight.

Power Of Dreams (29th Dec 2012)

Posted in live with tags , on January 18, 2013 by Fanning Sessions

Our southern correspondent has apparently recovered sufficiently from the excesses of 2012 to file copy on the ‘Trains, Boats & Planes’ 20th anniversary show at the Savoy Theatre in Cork. A man of few words at the best of times the report consisted of a photo, a setlist and a few shaky videos..

Hothouse Flowers / Fanning’s Fab 50

Posted in Fanning, interview, live, Music, radio with tags , , , , on December 4, 2012 by Fanning Sessions

Today the Hothouse Flowers explain how to vote in the Fanning Fab 50 or at least how you should have done so back in 1987. As a bonus there is a studio busking version of B side ‘Mountains’. The Hothouse Flowers play Whelan’s on 30th December, their first Dublin date in two years. And by the way voting is open for this year’s Fab50 – more details on the RTE 2fm website. Fiachna Ó Braonáin has of course been busy hosting radio shows on RTE1 and the ‘Poetic Champions Compose‘ series on TodayFM.

Dolphin Discs to close

Posted in interview, live, radio with tags , , on September 25, 2012 by Fanning Sessions

We have a soft spot for record shops but seem to have ended up charting their demise. This morning Ian Dempsey chatted to the boss of Dolphin Discs, Talbot Street, Dublin who after 40 years in business are closing their doors. Ian spent 10 minutes reminiscing with Paul O’Reilly who had a few interesting tales to tell including a few of strokes pulled. The shop closes Sunday and as Ian says everything must go so head on down share a few memories and maybe pick up a few bargains.
