However, the show was cancelled in 2003, in a move that caused much controversy among its viewers — at the time it was the only RTÉ show showcasing alternative music and there was no replacement show lined up to take its place. In recent years The Last Broadcast, Other Voices, and (When) Under Ether have acted as some form of replacements for the gap that has emerged but none with the same success. (en)
