Tales of the Dublin Castle

Tuesday 12-2pm

All aspects of music are his very lifeblood, and possibly find their way into other bodily secretions too. Thus Bugbear Promotions was formed in the 1990s in order to enable the better pursuit of the fabled Rock and Roll lifestyle whilst earning a bit of a living.

So that pop life took hold, from Bowie thru punk, the fifties, sixties, psych, reggae, jazz, soul, exotica and electronica. It’s either good or bad, right? Right. Hopefully, that’s reflected in the immaculate playlists presented on Tony’s Boogaloo Radio show, ‘Tales Of The Dublin Castle’, named after the infamous Camden boozer, where Tony and his Bugbear compadre James Matisson have been plying their jaundiced trade for 25 years, overseeing numerous awards for their work in the venue. A quarter-century of managing the venue, keeping the diary and booking around about a million bands, from The Libertines to Madness, Gob Sausage to 8-Year-Old Mum… the glamour is palpable.

In these dodgy days of lockdown and no live music, Tales Of The Dublin Castle has morphed into Tales Of The New Normal, as Tony is regularly joined on the show by co-presenter Mark Whiteley from legendary London post-punk malcontents Folk Devils. Together we shall salute the recently departed, the gone before, the various ex parrots of rock’n’roll, film, TV, literature, and all other cultural hullabaloos in our regular Obit Orbit, ‘Dead On Noon’.  An irreverent but hopefully respectful fond adieu to now permanently resting notables and worthies, illustrated with fabulous music of a dead dead good, eclectic derivation.
