FROM SWEENEYS BAR ON DAME STREET
PRESENTED BY JOANNA NELSON
Oisín McCole divides his time between working in Cup café and playing music at Dublin's open mic nights. He spends the remainder of his time looking at tv shows. However, McCole is quick to warn us that some tv shows are "not very good", while others are "quite good", and a few are "worth watching". Unlike many songwriters McCole doesn't have his own voice, instead he has the voice of a small jazz-handed Puerto Rican that he met once in a canoe. "I stole his voice" the young poet explains, "there was a tussle". Soon to record some "decent quality" versions of his songs McCole will then put together some sort of an extended play. The song 'Not For Your Heart' was written after a night in Susie's house when loads of uninvited people invited themselves to her party. It has nothing to do with that event.
