Well, no- he hasn't moved or switched careers, but Mr Fanning (Dublin Dave???) has been commissioned to create and host 4 programmes highlighting Irish bands and classic Irish Albums on BBC Radio 6

The Irish Independent's Weekend review covers the series, stating the 'usual suspects' of Lizzy, Rory, Van and U2 will feature.... HOWEVER!!!! No mention of Horslips.

I'm listening on line now, and you can too on this link Music Celebrates Ireland with Dave Fanning ... quite a good show so far but I'm appalled among all these 'seminal bands and albums' that our heroes aren't (so far) getting a look in.

I've sent Dave a mail to his own programme address (it mightn't get to him, as it's an RTE address, concerning a BBC show) wondering and asking if Horslips will feature- you can too if you like.... davefanningshow@rte.ie

Here's hoping.... some good tunes so far (some turkeys too though!) but at least the Radiators were featured.

Every Sunday at 1:00pm from today 'til May 11th at the above link...

Is he covering one band per episode, or is it a kind of mix-up and match 'em job ?

Its a mixture Tatoo. A potted history of Irish music :

'In the first of 4 programs Dave takes us through his definitive Irish albums and explores why each album is important. It features albums from U2, Them, Stiff Little Fingers, Rory Gallagher, Phil Lynott, My Bloody Valentine, The Undertones and Villagers.

He starts by setting the scene in the 60s when the Irish rock scene began to emerge off the back of show bands, professional acts that performed the chart hits of the day in dancehalls and clubs. He describes how the scene developed with key players such as Van Morrison, Rory Gallagher and Phil Lynott. From these he goes on to talk about key albums that followed.

Dave Fanning is an Irish radio presenter, DJ and journalist. He's been at the centre of the Irish music scene for the last 35 years and is regarded as a key player in Irish music'.
Theres a rake of shows on 6music in the coming weeks with an Irish flavour. Cerys Matthews is recording her Sunday show in Dublin this Sunday.

Dave Fanning my rusty ring.

He lives about a mile from me. Rarely see him gadding about. If I do I will sow the boot into him, as I have wanted to do for manys the year.

Him and Bono. Oh yes.....him and Bono.

You'd think.... however, the last programme will showcase current bands, with emphasis on the 2010's...


Brendan... get off the fence there, will ya...

This is wrong on so many levels:

9 minutes and 10 seconds in.

Wrong!

Fanning.

Fanning.

Don't get me vexed and rized.

"U2 this, U2 that. I once did a radio show with them naked....Phil, Van and Rory......My Bloody Valentine.....yada yada yada"

(Almost as bad as Philip King and his 400 part documentary 'Bringing it all back up' on Irish music that never mentioned Horslips once.)

Fcuk sake!

Addendum

I think King apologised after for the insult, in fairness.

Ironic that Steve Lamaq played King Of The Fairies on his show the other week and Fanning doesn't even mention them.

To be fair theres nothing wrong with what he plays IMO but to ignore Horslips contribution in the history of Irish music is ludicrous.
U2,The Pogues and The Radiators among many,many others would all happily admit to being influenced by them.

Shortsighted.
