And We’re Back…

Yup, we did well in the audience ratings yesterday.

Fair play to yiz for ticking the appropriate box where necessary… Or thinking you were ticking Foley‘s box and ticking mine accidentally. Whatever. It’s all good…

New stuff here tonight – don’t say I never warn yiz.




New look evening schedule at weekends brings more live music, more new music and more live festival action

From tonight (Friday, 16 May) RTÉ 2fm DJs Jenny Greene, Jenny Huston, Dan Hegarty, Cormac Battle, Mr Spring and Dave Fanning will bring music fans nationwide more live music, more new music and more live festival action than ever with a new look evening schedule at weekends.

The new look evening schedule features different, dedicated music strands each Friday, Saturday & Sunday evening as the DJs give fans their personal guides to the music maze and their music passions.  The music strands featured include the best of new rock and rock anthems, progressive dance and dance classics, indie and alternative music.

The weekend includes a brand new dance programme, Electric Disco, at 6pm on Saturday evenings with RTÉ 2fm’s newest DJ Jenny Greene;

“It’s the new soundtrack to Saturday nights.  We’ve got you covered with the biggest tunes, mash-ups, indie-pop remixes, dance classics. We’ll also be taking a look at some of the big gigs of the night and upcoming dance events, chatting to listeners on air and finding out what’s going on in their town for the night, not to mention rewarding the odd gem with the all important ‘free stuff’! It’ll be 3 hours of pre-club tune-age every Saturday night from 6pm to 9pm!”, says Jenny.

There’s also a new slot for Jenny Huston’s The Annex, Ireland’s biggest rock programme.  Now, at the new time of 7pm on Sundays evenings Jenny continues to play her favourite rock anthems from The Clash and The Who to Oasis and Blur.  Jenny H remarks; “Summer’s here and the weather’s looking good so why not get the barbeque going, invite your friends around and blast up the volume for The Annex.  I’ll be playing the best rock sounds for your back yard party.  Just what you need on a Sunday evening after a heavy weekend”

RTÉ 2fm will broadcast more live studio sessions and festival recordings from across Europe from 9.30pm on Friday with Jenny Huston and 9.30pm on Sunday with Cormac Battle.  Over the summer RTÉ 2fm and the trial digital radio stations will also be bringing fans the best of the festivals, including Oxegen, Planet Love and Electric Picnic throughout the summer.

Dan Hegarty broadcasts as usual at midnight tonight and Mr Spring continues to bring his dedicated fans progressive dance and live dance sessions from 9pm on Saturday.  Dave Fanning returns to midnight, where he started, on Sunday and continues to do what he does like nobody else, playing quality music and paying no attention to fashion, fads, trends or this week’s big thing!

The weekend music continues until 5am in the morning (Saturday and Sunday) with the exclusive Late Night Sessions; the best in dance, hip hop, reggae and electronic.

Tune into RTÉ 2fm’s new look weekend schedule for more live music, more new music and more live festival action this summer!
