Inishowen Live

Moville man Caoimhinn Barr will appear on Marianne Ashcroft’s show tonight on Inishown Live at 7pm (Thursday)

He will be naming his Top Ten Albums of all time and tracks will be played from them.

He is only allowed to select one album from any artists so there will be 10 different artists.

If it is a success, Marianne is hoping to make it a regular feature.

Maybe you could apply to be on the show to talk about your favourite albums.

So, what artists will Caoimhinn name and play?

I would say that Bob Dylan would be a certainty.

The Beatles, The Smiths and Radiohead would stand a good chance of getting on.

Check in at 7pm and find out.

Live Update

He has started with:-

10. Stone Roses

9. Sonic Nation

8. The Strokes

7. Super Furry Animals

(so far they all start with S)

6. Smashing Pumpkins

5. The Beatles (White Album) – Sexy Sadie

4. REM (Monster)

No Dylan yet – but it is sure to come. No Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Smiths or Radiohead so far either.

3.  Flaming Lips (The Soft Bulletin) – Waiting for Superman

Is Dylan going to be No. 1 or 2? I would say No 1

2. Nirvana (In Utero)

There’s no way that Dylan will be outside the Top 10. It’s just a question of which album and which song.

1.  Dylan – we might as well put him as No. 1 now even though he hasn’t announced it yet. We’ll add the album and song when we know.

1.  Dylan (Blonde on Blonde) – One of us must know sooner or later.

The Smiths and Radiohead were given honourable mentions as did Bruce Springstein and Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Counting Crows, Miles Davis, White Stripes, Oasis and Ryan Adams as well as a few others.

The show overran by more than a quarter of an hour. They are now playing some of the near misses starting with the White Stripes.

If others want to go on the show with their top 10 albums let Inishowen Live know on their Facebook page.
