The breaking news of the Pandora Papers leak was the top story focus for a discussion between Delano’s Duncan Roberts and Ara City Radio’s Lisa McLean on the air on Monday morning.

The pair were launching a new feature, Delano’s Top of the Week, on Ara City Radio. The Pandora Papers story broke on Sunday and will dominate the headlines for the coming week and beyond, said Duncan. The full-scale of the implication of Luxembourg entities in the data trawl that has led to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists gathering some 11.9 million files worldwide has yet to be revealed – though Reporter.lu, which is part of the ICIJ, says that some 100,000 files pertain to the grand duchy.

Duncan then chose three upcoming events for the week that Delano thinks readers and listeners should keep an eye on – the visit to Luxembourg of MSF international president Christos Christou, who will deliver a talk for the  Paperjam & Delano Club event on Wednesday evening at Degroof Petercam in Kirchberg on Wednesday, the Cineast festival of central and Eastern European film and culture that kicks off on Thursday 7 October, and the Out of the Crowd indie festival taking place at Kulturfabrik on Saturday.

Finally, Delano’s music track of the week is Under The Rolling Moon from the freshly released album Modern Fiction by Canadian indie trio Duck Ltd.

Listen to Delano’s Top of the Week here.

Tune in to Ara City Radio on 102.9 and 105.2 FM every Monday morning between 8.30 and 9am to hear the Delano feature.
