Pop not porn on Channel 6
With Channel 4 axing Popworld and RTÉ’s new summer season blanking rock and pop again (two shows are scheduled on sculptors, but that’s a different kind of rock), there’s less and less new music on our screens.
While some feel traditional pop TV is dying in an age when pop music is available on digital and online channels, tonight’s return to BBC of Later With Jools for its 29th season shows there is still a demand for high quality music programming.
Over at Channel 6, meanwhile, a new live music series airs from Monday. Night Shift: The Airfield Sessions will feature David Kitt, Director, Delorentos, Jape, Si Schroeder, Republic Of Loose and others recorded live at Airfield House in Dundrum, Dublin 14.
Wonder if it will attract as many viewers as Channel 6’s mooted soft porn season would have?
