Cian Ó Cíobháin Goes Gack to 1972

On Monday 1 May Cian Ó Cíobháin will be marking 18 years on air for An Taobh Tuathail with a special broadcast on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta bringing us back to 1972.

RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta came on air in 1972, and Cian Ó Cíobháin has long been fascinated by the idea of what type of music he would have been playing had ATT been on air at that time. So this year, for the programme’s birthday special, he is going to get into a time machine and travel back 45 years.

The playlist is likely to include early Bowie, Lou Reed, Can, Cymande, The Stooges, Judee Sill, Tangerine Dream, David Axelrod, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, The Sonics, Funkadelic, Shuggie Otis, Love, The 13th Floor Elevators …

If you’ve music you’d like to hear on #AnTT18 you can let Cian know via Twitter @AnTaobhTuathail, Facebook, Spotify or email ei.etr@ganrtta

The An Taobh Tuathail birthday special will be broadcast on 1 May 2017 22:00 – 00:00 on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, and you can listen back on the Radio Player or see
