NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE!
BP Fallon’s Wang Dang Wipeout Into Twenty-Twelve
Live from the Dublin studios of TodayFM
Four hours of mainline boogaloo
Dec 31st 2011 9pm (21.00 GMT) to Jan 1st 2012 1am (01.00 GMT)
Tomorrow (Saturday) BP Fallon yet again brings Ireland and beyond into the New Year by DJing his New Year’s Eve radio show, live on the web from the studios of TodayFM in Dublin.
Mr Fallon’s New Year shows are an institution – while BP’s critics say he should be in one.
BP Fallon’s Wang Dang Doodle is proud to have been doing this in Ireland on TodayFM for the last twelve years – the programme that starts in one year and finishes in the next – fly me to the tune.
You’ll be able to listen to BP and his tunes coming live from Ireland wherever you are on this planet. Just remember that we’re here on TodayFM
It’s this kind of music show: celebratory, a bit anarchic, lots of rock’n’roll and a few unreleased treasures, BP live in the TodayFM studio in Ireland reacting to txts and tweets and emails from across the globe. Wang Dang Wipeout Into 2012 – it’s your show too.
“If it’s the last thing you do this year…”
An extract from Standing On A Plateau – A Plateau For The Arts
– writing about the BP Fallon & The Hot Sprockeys show in Dublin last Tuesday:
“The next part of the night was not what I was expecting though! BP taking to the stage with none other than The Hot Sprockets as his band and what a band they made!! BP with his words of poetry portrayed through song provided by the great musicianship of the fantastic Sprockets… swaying to the music BP was, you could see it in his eyes and also when he closed them!!
“He just feels music around him and appreciates it for the beauty that it is!! And although he may look old and frail he can certainly can move!! Jumping out into the audience at one point and giving a dance to the lucky few that were situated around him.
“He blew me away!! I was gobsmacked! He sang a song of his friend and musical hero Van Morrison, it was called ‘Van And Gloria’… the man certainly knows how to tell a story I tell ya!! Captivating is the word!!
“Thank you BP Fallon for the great gig and the wonderful memory!!”
