My radio show, Sweet Oblivion, has been broadcast on RTÉ 2XM for more than two years now (it goes out at 5pm on Thursdays), but up until recently the only way you could listen back to an old show was if I uploaded the show to Soundcloud.com.
That was fine and all – but I can’t afford a costly subscription to the site so I could only fit 12 episodes on there at any given time.
So I’m over the moon to say that RTÉ’s recently launched Radio Player features 2XM shows, all broadcast on a high-quality stream.
If you want to listen to older shows (they’re archived for the past month and a half, no earlier than that unfortunately) to the left of my toothy face is a link that says ‘Listen back further’.
I’ll be putting my set lists up here as there’s currently no facility to do that on the player.
If you have any feedback, requests or otherwise, please tweet me or comment here.
I really appreciate when anyone takes the time to listen to my show, so thanks to my longstanding and new listeners. And thanks to the bands who send in their music – you all rock.
The show’s on tonight at 5pm and features Minnie Riperton, Marvin Gaye, PJ Harvey, THEESatisfaction and lots more… but in the meantime:
