About the show... and beyondEditThe Marc and Owen Show has been going for a while now and, as with everything, it has been evolving and changing weekly.
Now it has found its feet and has become a fun, informative and very interactive show, that tends to not take itself TOO seriously.
Each show features a variety of music from Frank Sinatra and the Beatles, to Pantera and Guns N' Roses. Not too much is taboo, our main aim it to provide a wide range of enjoyable music... usually largely picked by our audience requests.
A new feature of the show is Laura's Lyrical Lessons, written each week by Laura Nagle, this segment is a brief run through the history of bands like Therapy and Depeche Mode. Charting their highs and lows and highlighting music from the start, middle and end of their career.
Also every week there is the chance to win a free pair of cinema passes to see a movie of your choice at Movie House Cinemas.There is always the chance that a guest will pop up too... keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates on special guests, competitions, etc.
Also, keep an eye on our Facebook page for Movie, Book and Film reviews... these will be fun and honest reviews of new and classic entertainment. We don't believe there's any point in lying about them :-)
As with any radio show our primary aim is to produce something that everyone feels they can get involved in.
This is primarily why we have set up so many ways to get in contact with us.
We always want to hear from the listener. Be it dedications or requests, news or birthdays. Hey, we even enjoy compliments and (the odd) scolding.
So we certainly encourage everyone to get in touch by email, Facebook, text, Twitter or phone during the show.
We build a better show when we know what exactly the listener wants.
Over the next while we hope to improve and increase the amount of prizes we give away on the show.As it is, our weekly cinema ticket giveaway is kindly provided by Teri Kelly and Moviehouse Cinemas; you can find them here: http://www.moviehouse.co.uk/
We are in talks with WH Smith at the minute too regarding book reviews and give-aways, so watch this space. Also we are proud to have our show in association with Newry Omniplex.
If anyone has anything they would like to flag on the show: businesses or talents, then get in touch with us and we'll see what we we can do.
As off yesterday (28th Sept, 2010) we have a new music correspondent on the show. Mark Casey will be publishing regular reports on gigs/venues all over the place and hopefully we'll be able to keep you up to date on what's hot and what's not on the music scene. Marc's first review of Tim Robbins' gig in the Limlight can be found on our Facebook page. Good times. Welcome aboard Mark: http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=659585921&ref=ts

Laura's Lyrical LessonsEdit
Laura Nagel has been kind enough to contribute to the show every week with her musical knowledge... and it is greatly appreciated and, although still in its infancy, it has become a surefire hit.
INVASION III featuring The Marc and Owen ShowEditW5 again welcomes the return of the Emerald Garrison (Knights of the Empire), the Ireland & UK Star Wars costuming club, to kick-start six weeks of a stunning display of fan-built props, with this special opening weekend of over 50 costumed characters. With a legion of Storm Troopers as well as Darth Vader, Tuscan Raiders, Jedi Knights, Bounty Hunters, Clonetroopers and even Wookies battling it out for your attention you will be spoilt for choice as to where to point your camera.
The club members have recreated amazing life size movie props and exhibition pieces, including a Scout Walker (AT-ST) and Y-Wing Fighter. As well as these large scale props we’ll be displaying other fan-built props including character busts, helmets, and weapons. This display is open for six weeks and is free with admission to W5.
Boba Fett actor, Jeremy Bulloch, is in attendance once again this year and will be available to sign autographs as well as answer your questions in a live Lecture Theatre Q&A session.
Also in attendence will be Richard LaParmentier, Admiral Motti in A New Hope.
We have been lucky enough to be invited to cover the event.. by interviewing guest, troopers AND the actors. Very exciting times and hopefully the start of something big for The Marc & Owen Show...
May the Force be with you. Always.
The Marc & Owen YouTube ChannelEditWe now have a great YouTube Channel where we plan on posting shows, guests' videos and pretty much anything that is relevant to the show or that we generally find funny/interesting. Stay tuned... you never know what may pop up on there.
We have now added a few short videos of us in the studio.. nothing too radical just yet, we're still shy, lol.
We have also added a couple of videos taken on a troop with The Emerald Garrison last September at the Ulster American Folk Park, which was very surreal indeed.
On there too is a couple of videos from last year's Star Wars in Concert at the O2 in Dublin. A stunning show that we can't wait to see again when they tour next.
We are always adding playlists too so you can see what we like and feel free to check out our suggestions and subscriptions. From music videos to Star Wars, video games to celebrity blunders.. there's something for everyone.
The page has started to kick off with video from Tim Robbins' gig on Monday 27th Sept 2010. We got some footage of the man onstage and signing sutographs after.
Next week there'll be footage on there fro Star Wars invasion too... so keep watching the Tube. Excitement, adventure... we crave these things!

Yes, indeedEditWith the acknowledgement that Marc tends to say 'yes indeed' quite a bit - an accusation that Marc denies quite a bit. Yes, indeed he does - a fanpage has been set up on Facebook here:
This has been embraced by the show and has become a kind of unofficial, official page... so feel free to join up, and join in.
Rumours that Yes, indeed has now become a drinking game are greatly exaggerated. We think...
