This first series of ‘Megamix’ was recorded in the Cathedral Club – once the old Synod Hall of Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin. The programme was recorded in front of a live audience and combined live performances with music videos. The featured music was dance-oriented – shots of audience members dancing also appeared in the programme. It was produced by RTÉ in association with Frontier Films; Declan Lowney produced and directed.
