The Irish Independent reports today that Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler are together putting up 10% of the funds for a new radio company in Limerick.

The new company, called Heart Media, hopes to win a bid for the city’s radio station. The license is currently held by Live 95FM, but according to Irish law, radio licenses go up for renewal every 10 years. Heart Media wants to create a station with a more alternative mix, including at least a third of its content being news and current affairs.

Their investment will give the Cranberry lads a combined 10% sharehold in the company. Other investors include TV show “Killinaskully” star Pat Shortt, radio presenter Will Leahy, and former Live 95FM staff members.

“Zombie” on “Rock Star: Supernova”

On Tuesday night, singer Dilana Robichaux let loose a violent rendition of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” on CBS’s “Rock Star: Supernova.” It was a hit with the superstar judges too. You can watch her performance here.

Robichaux is a native of South Africa, but moved to Houston in 2001.

“Hi, Dilana. I wanna,” said Mötley CrÃ1⁄4e drummer Tommy Lee immediately after her performance. (”Sorry, I’m taken,” she said in reply.)

Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro, on the other hand, was a little more sensible in his comments. “Every week I look for that one performance thatâ€TMs the one that gives you chills. That youâ€TMre like, oh my God, I canâ€TMt believe that I just saw that on television. That was it,” he said.

The winner of the show will go on a world tour as the frontperson for a new rock band. (The previous incarnation of the show, “Rock Star: INXS,” filled the singer position for that band.)
