On this week's OUT OF THE BAG
In the first hour I was joined by Peter A Rogers. He is a native of Multyfarnham, County Westmeath in the Irish midlands, A qualified journalist. Educated in St. Cremins National School, Multyfarnham and Mullingar Community College. He received a National Award in Political Studies in 1998 and went on to gain his full qualification in Journalism and Newswriting from the London School of Journalism in 2002. He has worked in the hospitality sector for the past seventeen years or so, having two public houses and a restaurant during this time. He still lives in the midlands close to the small village of Rathowen, near the county boundary between Westmeath and Longford. Peter returned to discuss his new book "Burke & Grealy - Mullingar's Two Forgotten Martyrs". A book putting the record straight on the story of these brave and loyal young men! Luke Burke and Michael Grealy who were executed in 1923 amid much confusion and misinformation. Peter explained the facts behind the lies and subterfuge and announced the upcoming book launches.
In the second hour I was joined by Kim McMenamin. It has been quite a while since Kim was on my show and he has even sat in as host for me on my old MIDDAY SHOW! Here is the blog for that show which gives much more details about Kim http://outofthebagradio.weebly.com/blog/blog-kim-mcmenamin-hosts-for-seantuesday-midday-08-12-2015
On this week's show we heard more about Kim's band Urban Conflict and how their recent reformation and gig went. I played two tracks from Urban Conflict and discussed their future plans! It was a great hour as we chatted about things that matter to us! I also played tracks by The Gakk and UK Subs and recited a couple of poems!
In the final hour I brought you music from bands who PLAYED this year's Rebellion Festival in Blackpool. I played some of the bands I was lucky enough to catch on my five days away at Rebellion! This week I played Cockwomble, Bamboo Vipers, The Outcasts, Paranoid Visions, Lee Harveys, United Bottles, The Inflatable Dolls, Spizz Energi, The Adicts, Public Image Limited and Stiff Little Fingers!
