Pet Sounds with George Byrne (1999)


There have been many great tributes made to George Byrne who recently passed away all too young. The current issue of Hot Press is a good starting point. We thought we would pay tribute in the only way we know how – by posting a radio show. This one features George sitting in for Tom Dunne on his ‘Pet Sounds’ show on TodayFM back on a bank holiday in 1999. If you would like to read a nice tribute to George we particularly enjoyed this piece on Dublin Review of Books.

    Matthew Sweet song is If Time Permits. That band are called the Rubinoos for what it’s worth.

  2. pimpmyipod Says:

    The instrumental is Is This Music by Teenage Fanclub from Bandwagonesque.
