We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 11th April 2021 at 7pm on C103. (S.R.)
Where The Road Takes Me
After singer Sandie Jones passed away in September of 2019, it was necessary to organise a ‘GoFundMe’ account in order to fulfil her wishes to be brought back to Dublin, to be buried beside her parents.
It was a sad end for an extremely talented and beautiful woman who rose to fame in 1972.
When Joe Mac and Brendan O’Brien left the Dixies Showband to form Stage 2 in 1972, it was Sandie Jones who took over as lead singer with the Cork band.
She won the National Song Contest staged in the Cork Opera House the same year and then went forward to the UK to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest, coming 15th with ‘Ceol an Grá’.
On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene is joined by her brother Tony Jones who emotionally tells the story of his beloved older sister.
The Sandie Jones story this Sunday evening on C103 at 7.
