10 one-hour radio shows have been commissioned to mark 10 years of Hard Working Class Heroes, including one from your favourite Irish music siteTHIS ONE YOU JERKS.

To celebrate 10 years of Hard Working Class Heroes Festival there will be 10 1-hour long radio shows produced by special guest broadcasters to highlight their favourite contemporary Irish musicians and recordings.

The 10 shows are created, produced and recorded by various music journalists, musicians, promotors, label owners, etc. from several counties and genres of the Irish music spectrum. Each show was produced for Curious Broadcast.
