Hey guys, just heard the Dublin gig being advertised on Ireland's major radio national station RTE 2FM, making a real big deal of it, they played excerpts from Rock this Town, Stray Cat Strut and Runaway Boys, Jesus, its great to hear the Cats on the radio again! Has anyone heard thegigs promoted anywhere else?

Hey Dexter I haven't heard a freekin thing up her in Belfast, but that guy Gerry Lang on Downtown Radio plays lots of music from 60s right thru and lately has played Stray Cats as a feature band one Sunday, but only played a 3-4 songs all the early hits. I'm gonna tune in now to RTE on the old computer here at work see what I can get. I haven't seen a poster anywhere in Ireland yet either. Stay in touch for when you're going down to Dublin and we'll meet up for a pint.

Liam

Big time Liam, that'd be great, Im planning to get up to Belfast for one of the last fridays, met Marti and Roberta during the Derry jazz fest, might get a pint then but its hard to get the time with the kids. Aye same as youself, Ive seen or heard nothing of the Cats until last night, nearly crashed the car!! Id say it'll be a regular slot now for a while.

Not heard any promo yet, but there was a question on Ken Bruces Popmaster the other day on Radio 2. Which of the Stray Cats' 80's releases made the top 10. the contestant answerd (incorrectly) Stray Cat Strut. Ken Bruce retorted, 'bad luck, you could have had, either Rock This Town or Runaway Boys'... At 42 years old, it still gives me goose bumps to hear them mentioned on the radio. Someone also had Rock this Town on Steve Wrignts oldies.

I know i'm sad... i have seeked professional help, but nobody will take mycase.

Love Brian Setzer (or a dilluded Mikey Strafford) xx

Hey Dexter I'm hoping to get down to the club this Friday nite, the wife and kids are going to stay with relatives in Monaghan, so hope to have a good rockin nite. The club will be closed in August for one month so the club won't be on then, apparently there's some renovations taking place.

Still haven't heard the promo on RTE and I listed all yesterday.

hi'ya dexter you could be right there about 2fm you know us irish we like to start of slow and finish with a bang(had to say that the hubby is evesdropping) Laughing
anyways as i mentioned in a previous thread i've been a long time out of the dublin scene since i moved to the sticks however the other half knows someone who's still v v involved so hes going to give him a ring in a few weeks and see whats happening, dublins changed sooo much since i hung out there, the in place used to be around grafton st but lately temple bar has taking over, as you know doubt know theres a lot of pubs in good oul dublin so it'll be nice to find out where's a good place to go, i shall keep thee informed....
ps as for the post gig pub i think naturally that will be back in the cats hotel room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
