SHUSH! SOUNDS FROM UCC LIBRARY (09 JULY 2018)

Today was a solo show by Martin as Ronan was off for the week. To check out the solo flight you can listen to the full show in its entirety here…

We spoke to James Horton, curator of the Claude Pélieu: On all Frequencies exhibition, currently running in Boole Library. That interview can be listened to here.

If you want to listen to the show, without the interruption of Martin between the songs then here is the full playlist sans comment…

Martin’s Track of the Week is the haunting, beautiful Riverside by Agnes Obel. Click here to read a short post why…

Our recommended read of the week comes from the Science Museum blog and looks at what science says about how music can affect our moods

And finally, our UCC Library resource of the week is this Libguide on Academic Intregity – looking at things like Copyright, Ethics, Fake News, Plagiarism, Data Protection and Referencing. This is an excellent guide by our colleague Liaison Librarian for Business and Law, Virginia Conrick

Martin’s track(s) of this week comes from Teardrop Explodes. Click here to see why.

Our recommended read of the week is a wonderful tribute from Colm Callaghan to his mother available on The Blackpool Sentinel. This lovely post lovingly paints a lovely picture of his mother and the influence she had on his musical, and the rest of his, life. It touches on Microdisney as it tells the story.

Our recommended UCC Library resource of the week are our Libguides. Subject Guides for every subject. These are freely accessible to all.

 

MARTIN’S TRACK OF THE WEEK (02 JULY 2018)

One of my favourite bands when I was a young teenager was Teardrop Explodes. Seeing these Liverpool sons perform Reward on Top of the Pops (how many bands were kids introduced to via this show) for the first time blew my proverbial (musical) mind. There next two singles were as equally good. And these two tracks are my tracks of the week this week – Treason and Passionate Friend. I couldn’t decide which track to play so I got self indulgent and played both. I nearly added Reward to the list but felt it might be a bit much. But the positive reaction of our listeners to the two tracks played made me think it may not have been.

Well, enough talking. Now the music…
