In this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene invites you to spend an hour with singer-songwriter John Spillane. John is a native of Cork, a place he rightfully describes as the centre of the universe, and a place that has had a huge creative influence on him.
His father died at a young age, leaving his mother to raise five young boys. A lot of time afterwards was spent on their Uncle’s farm near Bantry tending to livestock, and listening to songs around the fireside.
Over his thirty three year career, John has written 200 songs, some of which have been covered by the likes of Christy Moore, Sharon Shannon and Pauline Scanlon.
From his time with the Stargazers and Nomos, to following a successful solo career, there are many songs and stories to hear from John Spillane on Where the road takes me, this Sunday evening at 7pm on C103.
If you missed the previous week’s programme on any occasion, you can hear it from mid-day the following Monday on our website. C103.ie
We thank John Greene for the Programme Information. (S.R.)
