Ulster Punk is usually thought of as just The Undertones or Stiff Little Fingers but there was a much larger scene, full of exciting, highly political bands.Beyond The Wire gives voice to these bands, what they stood for, and the obstacles they faced and met head on. By letting the protagonists speak for themselves, the documentary also challenges listeners preconceptions of Ulster Protestant identity.

Well folks, I know its been a while, but the radio station is still not back live, and we've been transmitting pre-recorded shows ... this is all the fault of the builders and the inspectors and all that shite , but we are promised that everything will be ready to go for our official opening on Monday October 19. As part of those celebrations Beyond The Wire NightVision's documentary debut will receive its official world premiere at 19:00 Irish time on Monday October 19th. The show will be preceded by interview with the production team on the making of the documentary.

Flirt FM is still off the air while we move to a new building, and of course the builders are taking longer than planned. Just why people don't plan for builders to take longer than planned is beyond me, but that's academia for ya. Anyway, the station should be back up on Monday, which means my show with its legendary mix of hip-hop, funk, soul, world and reggae will be back on NEXT Friday 18 Sept @ 22:00. Talk to y'all then.
Tune in Tonight, Friday 14 Aug @ 18:00 on Flirt FM 101.3 or FlirtFM.ie for a sneak preview of the soon to be award-winning documentary .. BEYOND THE WIRE ... the story of Belfast's world renowned punk scene.
Well folks, finally the documentary is finished. We have to master it, and clean up a few bits, but yeah, its done! ...
We're working now on its premiere date, which has been complicated slightly by Flirt FM's move to new premises at the end of next week. But stay tuned, we'll be sure to give u a heads up on when/where u can hear it first.
Interesting new biz model from the new Pirate Bay .. viva los piratas ...
The Pirate Bay 2.0: Subsidized Downloads, Crowd-Sourced Cloud Rosso describes the new Pirate Bay as a "resource-supported" model where royalty fees and other costs related to file sharing are subsidized by tying your PC's computing power into The Pirate Bay's network. "In short, the more computer resources the user contributes to The Pirate Bay, the more his content consumption is subsidized," Rosso wrote. The Pirate Bay will also charge a small mothly fee to its users; however, that fee can be reduced depending on how much of your own computing resources you contribute to The Pirate Bay.
The Pirate Bay would then use all that user-contributed computing power to develop a cloud network to compete directly with cloud services like Akamai and Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), according to a CNET report.
