Fanning’s Fab 50 (1989)


It’s that time of the year folks – voting is now open for Fanning’s Fab 50. I do wish Dave would restrict voting to music released in the last 12 months, next best thing would be for bands to put the word out to their fanbase that they cast a vote for a particular track, isn’t it time that the Fab50 got some social media pimping?

Today we have two sections of the 1989 Fab 50 for your listening pleasure. Part one alone is worth checking out for Golden Horde frontman Simon Carmody’s guest appearance fresh from a Van Morrison gig to give an impromptu review!

  1. Sean Coleman Says:

    Lot of really good music there that I haven’t heard in ages. I would love to hear the entire program from the night that Brush Shields was a guest on the show. Some of the storys were so funny. Also the entire show where Phil Lynnot was the guest I think he had just released Solo in Soho. I really enjoyed listening to the rock show during the late seventies from twelve till ten to two. Brilliant.
