YouTube Channel & Playlists

Posted in Music, TV with tags , , , , , , on October 25, 2016 by Fanning Sessions

Along with twitter, facebook, soundcloud, mixcloud accounts we also have a YouTube channel. In addition to a few videos rescued from VHS tapes generously sent by readers (there are some ‘No Disco’ tapes outstanding – on the TODO list!) we use playlists to track musical performances we come across from shows close to our hearts e.g. Anything Goes, Visual Eyes, Borderline, Megamix, On The Waterfront and No Disco. If you want to take a trip down memory lane these playlists might be a good starting off point and if you come across clips we missed then drop a line. Whilst on the subject a big thank you to all who have donated and uploaded priceless clips and a major tip of the hat to KillianM2 who continues to do sterling work. Now excuse us – we’re off to add an #MTUSA playlist..

Forget Me Nots (On The Waterfront)

Posted in Music, TV with tags , , , , on January 5, 2012 by Fanning Sessions

Formed in 1990 in Dublin Forget Me Nots were Michelle Burrows (vocals, guitar), Eithne Flynn (vocals, guitar), Maurice McGrath (guitar), Mark Walsh (bass) and Justin Healy (drums). Justin was previously with The Golden Horde and The Glee Club. The band released singles ‘2 Fay Ray’ (1991), ‘Trouble’ (1992), ‘Soap Singer’s Beat’ (1992) and album ‘Hullabaloo’ (1992). While well received, the album didn’t achieve the level of success expected and following one further single ‘So Good’ (1993) parted company with Sony/Colombia Records. The quartet went on to release ‘Five O’Clock’ train in 1994 before calling it a day. This footage was recorded for the RTE programme ‘On The Waterfront‘ in 1992.

33rd Hurricane (On The Waterfront)

Posted in Music with tags , , , on May 14, 2011 by Fanning Sessions

This Carndonagh Co. Donegal band based around Finbarr Doherty have featured here twice already but I’d never seen any footage of them performing. Until now that is. Watch them here on RTE’s live music show ‘On The Waterfront‘. I have quite a bit more where this came from so if you have any requests lets hear them. Thank you to the reader who sent me the DVD from whence this came.
