We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information on this Sunday’s “Where the Road Takes Me” – 9th Feb. 2020. (S.R.)
Travelling to a Formula One Grand Prix in Silverstone, Brazil or the US, or how about meeting many of your favourite world famous Country Music or sporting stars, or taking a motorbike ride across Alaska.
Anyone of these may be on your bucket list. However, on Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, John Greene meets a man who has managed to tick them all off, one by one. And he’s not finished yet, having every intention of adding more to his long list of ‘have dones’.
Stephen Nolan was born in the village of Ballinspittle, once famous for its moving statue. His job which provided him with the time and the finance to fulfill an amazing bucket list, is deserving of a programme on its own.
For forty years, Stephen has worked for the Catterpillar Company on the Oil Sands of Fort McMurray in Canada.
In his spare time, he has met Mohammed Ali, Marvin Haggler, Sugar Ray Robinson, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings.
Hear his amazing story on ‘Where the road takes me – this Sunday evening at 7 – on C103.
