Nialler9 Podcast: Cian O’Ciobhain on 25 years of doing a new music radio show

Cian O'Ciobhain

The West Kerry DJ and radio presenter Cian Ó Cíobháin marks 25 years of An Taobh Tuathail, his alternative new music show which has been running for five nights a week on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta since 1999.

Cian joins us to pick six tracks to represent his radio show over the years, and to discuss his process, DJing and how he has managed to present a world-renowned radio show for so long in a fickle short-career industry.

Tracks selected come from To Rococo Rot, St. Germain, Dead Can Dance, Fairmont, Loner Deluxe and Mike Smalle.

Cian is marking 25 years of ATT on his show from Monday 29th April to Friday 3rd May, where the shows will feature all exclusive new music, previously unreleased and unheard outside of the musicians’ studios, from artists he admires from home and abroad, including Peter Gordon, Works Of Intent, Dian Cécht, Blamhaus, Elliot Adamson, The Shen, Meljoann, Man Power, Junk Drawer and Ambient Babestation Meltdown and Borai.

Two Disco Dána parties in Galway (Cuba venue on Saturday 4th May) and Dublin (at Hen’s Teeth – Friday 31st May.) are also lined up.


ATT airs every Monday from 11pm to 1am and from Tuesday to Friday from 10pm to midnight.
