Here Comes the Night was a late night radio show hosted by Donal Dineen on Today FM. It commenced broadcasting on 17 March 1997, lasting for a seven-year period before being replaced by Dineen's current show Small Hours. [1] It was Dineen's first radio show on Today FM, airing from the station's opening day. Dineen is largely credited with breaking David Gray in Ireland during this show's tenure.[2] Other artists whose music featured on this show included Jape,[3][4] who went on to win the Choice Music Prize in 2009.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11]
