Listeners to Sunday’s Dave Couse Show on TodayFM this week got a little more than they bargained for. Dave was hosting a special all Irish ‘An Teach Solas‘ edition to commemorate our national holiday when with 15 minutes to go he announced that his show was to be axed. Dave had apparently known for some time but as he himself says, naively thought a reprieve might come. Alas that was not the case and the Sunday evening 10pm – midnight show which has been running for almost 6 years has but two final installments remaining. Check out the show on the TodayFM player.

The Would-Be's circa 1990's

The Would Be’s are no strangers round these parts but this track was a welcome surprise. It’s a demo version of ‘Must It Be’ featuring a male vocal and it’s impressive how good it sounds. The Would Be’s are undergoing something of a renaissance reforning and releasing an excellent album ‘Beautiful Mess‘ in 2013. They play The Dock Arts Centre, Carrick On Shannon on March 21st.

We are proud to belatedly confirm our first official CD release. At the end of 2013 Martin Burns announced that a CD of Donnelly Brothers demos was to be released and a list of 14 tracks was assembled. Unfortunately fans noticed that one track was missing – ‘The Handicap Bus’. Fortunately The Fanning Sessions Archive had posted that very track, so contact was duly made and we were happy to assist. Said CD has now been released and can be purchased from Flaming June Records for €6.
