“Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday’s programme (13th Jan. 2019).  (S.R.)

‘ Mary’s Boy Child’ – probably the most played song during the festive season.  Although recorded in a hurry, it became a Christmas number one, and topped the UK charts for four weeks in 1978. 

For Boney M, it would be one of many number one hit songs during their ten years together, resulting in almost 150 million record sales. 

In a ‘Where the road takes me New Year special’, and in a two part programme, John Greene speaks to lead singers Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett, two of the original members of Boney M.

Having come from poor Jamaican backgrounds, both girls went on to become pop stars with a band, guided by German record producer Frank Farian. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103″
