Recorded before social distancing came to place, we revert to the Michael McCarthy story, part one of which was broadcast two weeks ago.  This Sunday evening on Where the road takes me,  John Greene concludes this two part programme. 

Michael was co-founder of the Ritz Showband who were based in Bandon during the 1950s and ’60s.

Michael talks about his time in the motor industry, and  his concern for the environment and it’s wildlife inhabitants.
