Word is Balatty managed to stumble and stutter his way through his first interview for Rock Radio Northern Ireland!

Yes, Canadian band Cherry Suede had the "honour" to be his first victims!!

Last week contact was made, via Skype, with Randy Scott and Randy Young of Cherry Suede.

We had a very pleasant conversation about all things Cherry Suede, the band history, playing live, the music industry today all interspersed with some of their songs and some songs from bands they like.

Check out their website http://www.cherrysuede.com/ where you can download their first album, and on facebook http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?ref=profile&id=694228400#!/thesuede also on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/CherrySuedeUpClose for some live videos.

Balattys Podcast will be available "On Demand" from early next week, and will go out on RRNI as usual, Thursday 7.00pm.
