UCD College Radio…

Was asked today for the second time in the last couple of years today to go over and address the assembled staff of the student radio station in UCD. I went there at one point (!) and was on the first station they had waaaaay back in 1991 (and yes, that does make me feel more prehistoric than usual) along with a student newsreader who has become a full time blogger these days… šŸ™‚
Had a bit of time to kill before I went over to them in the lovely new student building by the playing fields so thus today’s picture diary…

The glass and concrete ex-security hut by the lake near the Arts Building that was our studio all those years ago. At least they have their own portakabin now šŸ™‚

Theatre L – spent lots of time dozing and writing poetry here…

A poster advertising Turn… As Ollie reads here: love the butterflies…. Very pretty šŸ™‚

And then there were this year’s staff – some more entheusiastic than others (note the guy down the back!)

Anyhew they’re all lovely and have a lovely website too:



PS Thanks to Eoin who I met there today and recommended this to me:


Loads of new US and Canadian music to check out…

And to Jane who was also present and mailed me her blog too:
