NO ENCORE #220 | TOP 5 SIBLING SONGS / AILBHE REDDY INTERVIEW / JESSIE WARE REVIEW

“I’ll try and get next week’s episode down to an hour-and-a-half,” Dave said.

So much for that as NO ENCORE returns with another epic voyage. Craig sits this one out to celebrate his birthday and so the dulcet tones of Zara Hedderman return with the co-host assist. Together, she and Dave detail their best (Zara) and worst (Dave) songs by siblings in this week’s Top 5 smackdown.

Before that, Ailbhe Reddy is present for that rarest of pandemic events; an actual in-person interview. She talks new single ‘Time Difference’, touring plans falling into disarray, her forthcoming album, starting her own label, her participation as one of the Irish Women in Harmony and last week’s Irish Radio Gender Disparity Report.



All that and the bop-heavy Jessie Ware album in review…

ACT ONE: Zara has a new job.

ACT TWO [9:07]: News! Phoebe Bridgers makes a huge 1975-themed statement, Dustin the Turkey runs afowl of Niall Horan stans, the American entertainment scene battles Covid-19, and a great music publication could use your help.

ACT THREE [33:08]: The great Ailbhe Reddy in conversation.

ACT FOUR [1:09:27]: What’s Your Pleasure? asks Jessie Ware. Dave and Zara contemplate accordingly.

ACT FIVE [1:25;09]: The very best and worst songs made by siblings. Quite the contrast this week.
