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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for the advance information on this Sunday (8th March 2020) evening’s programme on C103 at 7.  (S.R.)

On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me’, John Greene concludes the two part programme which pays tribute to Terry McCarthy, the former Dixies lead singer who died suddenly last year.

Family, friends and fellow singers will  again remember tales of a man who was comfortable singing any type of song, be it pop, ballads or opera. 

Joe Mac remembers the initiation ceremony they prepared for the newest member of the Dixies in Abu Dhabi.

Eddie Fuller tells us why Terry was an ideal candidate to join Brian Callanan and the late Hugh Moynihan when his plans for the ‘Cork Tenors’ were gaining momentum.

And although he was a ‘divil’ for losing his lyrics, singer Lorraine Manley says that Terry always found them at the right moment and was a pleasure to work with.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
