An Taobh Tuathail celebrates 15 years on air & wants your cover song requests


Cian Ó Cíobháin’s An Taobh Tuathail, the RTÉ RnaG alternative music show of note is celebrating 15 years on air on May 1st, an impressive feat indeed.

Ó Cíobháin will be marking the occasion with a special broadcast and like in 2011, the man is asking for your favourite covers of all-time for the 15th birthday show.

You can send your requests in to him at [email protected], Facebook or Twitter. The only stipulation is it can’t have been featured before (see below for a list).

Here’s one of my favourite all-time covers of a Big Star tune by a Swedish musician Kendal Johansson, who we’ve not heard from since. It gives me shivers every time.
