Throughout my time playing you tracks from Derry I’ve had some time to reflect on everything I have learned and shared with you.
Before we leave Ireland, I have some very special music and words to leave you with. I’m going to break with our traditional format and let the award winning radio DJ Stephen McCauley take over. In the history of rock and roll radio there have been a few disc jockeys around which a music community has coalesced, Rodney Bingenheimer’s Rodney on the Roq, and Little Steven’s Underground Garage, to name two. These disc jockeys did more than just play records, they discovered and nurtured entire music scenes in their communities.
