iTake Over with Sinead Burke

iTake Over is a radio show that airs every Sunday between 8:50 and 9:50 on i102-104. It gives guests a chance to play their favourite songs for an hour and talk about them. Bar the obscene (I got in trouble for allowing NWA's Gangsta Gansta for playing) anything goes! The guests are usually DJ's, promoters, band members, bloggers etc. from the west who have something to plug.

This week we had Sinead Burke, ents editor with Sin, the NUI Galway college paper and contributor to Subbacultcha, a Dutch music magazine who did a themed show on musicians who died in the past ten years to go along with an article she's writing for Sin

Here's the tracklist

R.L - Burnside
James Brown - Three Hearts In A Tangle
Ray Charles - Greenbacks
Bo Diddley - Who Do You Love?
Willie DeVille - Spanish Harlem
Warren Zevon - Werewolves Of London
John Martyn - May You Never
Nina Simone - I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
Chet Atkins - Vincent
The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go
Elliott Smith - Needle In The Hay
The Ramones - Baby, I Love You
Blossom Dearie - Rhode Island Is Famous For You

And listen to it here

If you'd like to get involved mail me with an idea or an example of what you'd play, as long as it's not a happy hardcore hour I'm sure it'll be fine!

Check out the radio station at, we're a commercial radio station based in Galway who've been servicing the radio needs of the young folk (15-35) of the west of Ireland for nearly two years. Rather successfully too, we're the most listened to regional station in the country! Sunday evenings are dedicated to stuff you wouldn't usually hear on a commercial station followed by an excellent and funny problem show brought to you by Mary McGill with Darragh Harkin, aka iTalk.
Tune in like!
Radio hugs and love, Josh.
