David Heffernan (6th Feb 2011)

Another enjoyable ‘Guaranteed Irish‘ show on 4FM courtesy Dave Heffernan and producer Brendan Russell last Sunday. I particularly enjoyed tunes by Deadly Engines, Cypress, Mine!, The Would Be’s, Revelino, Brian, Engine Alley, The Brilliant Trees and The Radio but that’s not to say I didn’t like the other tracks. I’m impressed that Dave doesn’t always go for the obvious choice of band or track and I’m always sure to come across a few songs I’ve never heard before. He also throws in the occasional faux pas to generate regular email traffic. In case you missed the show check it out here. If you’d like to receive notification of further shows then subscribe to comments on this post (if you comment on this post you will be asked if you want notification of further replies) and I’ll do my best to see you don’t miss out.

    will be sadly missed , a great set of shows , i doubt CLASSIC HITS will replace it with anything of the same caliber

    but it sure was fun while it lasted

    Hard to get used to the shorter shows, even harder to get used to the fact that they are about to stop completely. Wish 4FM would get a clue before it’s too late. Some slight FM interference in evidence and some missing songtitles.. enjoy

  36. Its like a playlist from my tape collection in the 80s. My brother is Dave Moloney of Vipers fame, and Rhythm Kings, and Teen Commandments and a couple of others I see on this web page! Brilliant playlists.

  37. I forgot about Private World. I think that was co written by Pete Holidai, who currently has an album on release, Devil’s Guitar. B side, Italian girl or was it “I heard it on the Radio”
