Ballydehob and Mayo Themes on “Where the Road Takes Me” This Evening at 7 on C103

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s feature on C103 at 7pm.  (S.R.)

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene looks into the life and times of one of Ireland’s last street singers.
