Radio Nova is once again at the heartbeat of the Dublin music scene as Christy Dignam from ASLAN unveiled his brand new solo song “High” exclusively with a world premier play on ‘Morning Glory with PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe’ on Radio Nova this morning (Friday 27th August) morning just after the 7am news.
The Aslan frontman will release his album ‘The Man Who Stayed Alive’, on October 15th. The album was conceived during the Covid-19 pandemic with Dignam working with Aslan collaborator Don Mescall.
During his interview, Christy revealed how he has received no support from the Government throughout COVID restrictions, preventing him and Aslan from performing.
“The guy that sang at my dad’s funeral got 46 grand out of a grant and we got nothing. There is endemic corruption in this country. If Aslan weren’t entitled to any of the grants who are? We are 40 years working in this country paying taxes. It’s ridiculous”
Christy also gave his thoughts on the GAA having 40,000 people at the All Ireland last weekend.
“It’s great that the GAA is back but if it’s alright for that, the Artane Boys Band were in the middle of Croke Park before the game. The law is if there is music outside there’s only 500 maximum allowed there but there was 40 000 at their gig!”
And of his new song “High” Christy said
“I’m sure PJ knows this, sometimes when you write something you just know it’s good and I knew this was fairly decent”, to which Jim wryly replied “That doesn’t happen a lot with PJ”
As the banter continued, Christy referred to PJ’s recent RTE TV show “The Big DIY Challenge” by saying, “Yeah in fairness that’s why he’s fixing gafs now”.
‘Morning Glory’, the award-winning breakfast radio show with PJ Gallagher & Jim McCabe’, is broadcast on Radio Nova weekdays from 6am -10am.
