May 1st sees the 13th birthday of An Taobh Tuathail and presenter Cian Ó Cíobháin will be ringing in the show’s first year as a teenager with an ‘anti-party’ of sorts. Instead of spinning uplifting tunes that you might associate with a party, he will bring you a selection of tracks that bring tears to your and his eyes.
Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact him on the ATT Facebook page with your track suggestions and the reasons why. Sometimes tracks that brings you to the vale of tears might be associated with particular memories. On other occasions, a certain dolorous bassline or a combination of minor chords might be enough to set you sobbing. The record needs not be particularly depressing or downbeat – it might just be so intrinsically beautiful that it moves you like no other.
Tune in to An Taobh Tuathail on Raidió na Gaeltachta at 9pm on May 1st for tear-jerkers ahoy!
