Podcast 06: Oxegen 2008 special

While camped out at Oxegen over the weekend, The State team grabbed a couple of radio presenters and a journalist/blogger to join them in taking stock of the festival thus far. Our discussion took in: Oxegen as the new European festival, the line-up’s good and bad points, someone defending the Counting Crows, why nobody turned up for Richard Hawley, Paul Heaton and Cat Power, Aphex Twin’s mental set on Friday, a look at how the new and Irish bands got on and the inevitable, Amy Winehouse.

Around the Oxegen bench on Sunday @ 6pm we had:

Alison Curtis Today FM radio presenter every Monday to Thursday from 10.00pm to midnight and Sunday for The Last Splash.

Sinéad Ni MhordaPhantom FM Access All Areas presenter.

Una MullallySunday Tribune journalist and blogger UnaRocks.

John WalsheState editor makes his first appearance on the podcast. Harbours secret Counting Crows obsession.

Phil UdellState editor and hater of all things Winehouse.

Niall Byrne – Assistant editor and lover of all things obscure. Apparently. Also known as nialler9. Lower-case “n” please.

  • Jesus, they look fairly shocking in that photo – nailler has really let himself go since he joined State

  • Sorry – i meant nialler, not his limerick doppleganger

  • LOLZ.

  • Good to see James Allan (the mainman from Glasvegas) got into the picture too. Wonder does he carry a comb and a packet of cigarettes rolled up in his t-shirt sleeves.
