Re: reel deal

It was on RTE. For anyone outside Ireland who wants to watch the programme online:

Go to http://www.xroxy.com/proxylist.php?country=IE to get an IP address.

Launch Firefox
Click Tools - Options (or Preferences on Mac)
Click ‘Advanced’ on the top menu
Choose the ‘Network’ tab and click on ‘Settings…’
Choose ‘Manual Proxy Configuration:’
Insert the ip address and port number for the proxy server.
e.g. 79.125.7.60, port 80

Go to http://www.rte.ie/player/#v=1050068

Re: reel deal

I tell you what if it wasn’t for the internet (this site mainly) i wouldn’t know a hell of a lot of tunes especially the names of them. God bless the internet.

Re: reel deal

I particularly liked the piece with Mick O’Brien - a thoughtful contribution.

Re: reel deal

thanks Jeremy for the IP thing. I’ve missed many a program because I’m trying to view from Australia.

Re: reel deal

Mick O’ Brien provided a moment of sanity in a half hour of chaos. It reminded me of another program some years back called river of sound a similar attempt to turn traditional music on it’s head, we renamed it river of s***. long live siar an bothar last wednesday’s show was one of the best.

Re: reel deal

Actually, Jeremy, as an Irish resident who pays the TV licence fee, I think its rather irresponsible of you to provide a back door to RTÉ!

Re: reel deal

was fairly boring to be honest. how many times have we seen the same musicians profiled or performed on tv before, ie. tara breen, tim edey, etc. Yawnfest!
