Pop not porn on Chan­nel 6

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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?
