Remember that radio show I used to do on Dublin’s Phantom FM? Well, this isn’t quite the return of a two hour extravaganza of new and old music on your wireless, but it will do for now. Thanks to OTR work experience lad Joey Cullen-Tinley kicking my ass last week about why I wasn’t using Garageband to make shows and podcasts, I’ve decided it’s time to finally do something about it. Don’t fret, the Radio OTR service will continue to provide 400 tracks of listening pleasure 24/7, but a lot of the music I want to play is new music which is not yet available on Deezer. So, here we go with the first Far Side on OTR, selecting a bunch of tunes which have been getting a lot of play round these parts in recent times (playlist below). Stay tuned for more broadcasts in the coming weeks and months.
