Click on the link to listen back to this week’s show podcast – In Colour with Darren Cleary 25/04/16
This week, Andrew seized control of the playlist yet still managed to bring you your usual cocktail of indie, rock and alternative music along with some of the best of new Irish music.
2XM, along with every other major radio division, joined in celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Ireland’s first every radio broadcast by replaying the famous morse code message that was sent out on 25th April 1916 at 5:30pm from 10-11 Sackville Place, what is now known as the Grand Central Pub on O’Connell Street. The message, written by James Connolly and transmitted by David Burke under heavy sniper fire, announced “Irish Republic declared in Dublin today. Irish troops have captured city and are in full possession. Enemy cannot move in city. The whole country rising.”
In Colour @ the Movies featured Andrew talking the latest madcap Marvel film Captain America: Civil War, his review of which can be found here, while Darren and Andrew speculated about Monday evening’s triumphant return to television of Game of Thrones season six.
Details of the playlist’s and links to the featured artists are included below. If you’re in a band, or making music on your own and you’d like your track played on the show, you can submit it now.
