The life, times and songs of Country Music star Margo and songwriter Johnny Duhan, currently feature on ‘Where the road takes me’, in a series entitled ‘The Singer & the Songwriter’

On this week’s programme, John Greene concludes the story of Margo….

This week we hear about her battle with alcohol, as she strives to come to terms with a cancelled wedding, a horrific car crash and the weight of a promise made to her father before he died. 

But the good times outweigh the bad as she sings with Johnny Cash and Glen Cambell, tours with Hank Locklin and in Dolly Parton discovers a friend when she needs one.

There’s also a few family facts to be set straight as well, including a supposed falling out with Daniel that never happened.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103″

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

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding his programme this Sunday, 28th June 2020 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.)

This Sunday evening on Where the road takes me, John Greene begins a four-part series entitled  ‘The Singer & The Songwriter’.

Featured in parts three and four, songwriter Johnny Duhan reflects on a difficult upbringing, his time as frontman with beat-band ‘Granny’s Intentions’, the importance of  his song ‘The Voyage’, and why he is often referred to as ‘the man in the shadows’. 

The series begins this Sunday evening with Country singing star Margo O’Donnell, who never wished or meant to be a singer.

In the programme Margo speaks about…………

How the promise made to her father on his deathbed, weighed her down for years……..

How her future husband backed out of their wedding, two weeks before it was due to take place…

How the final straw was a horrific car crash which kept her off the stage for months, leading to loneliness, depression and leaning on alcohol for support.

And………there’s a few myths about her family to be cleared up as well. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday on C103″

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday June 7th

Margaret Crowley

Not everybody gets a new cooker for their birthday, and even fewer get a new cooker for their birthday, when they reach 100 years.

Born in Lehina, Lislevane near Courtmacsherry on May-day 1920, Margaret Crowley arrived in this world as one pandemic ended.  One hundred years later, she is still around to witness another one begin. 

When her mother died at the young age of forty, there were nine children to be raised.  Her father rejected all calls to have his children separated and sent to Upton and Clonakilty.  During the following years, he proved himself to be a loving, caring and very capable parent.

On this week’s edition of Where the road takes me’, Margaret tells her story to John Greene

Her son Jim joins us to wax lyrical about his amazing mother.

And we track down Fr. Tom Sexton who was by cared for as a two year old  by Margaret, after his mother died in childbirth.

Inspiration from the Past  –  Programme 2

Tomi  (Tomey)  Reichental

Thirty five members of his family perished in Auschwitz.  So, how did nine year old Tomi Reichental survive almost a year at the Nazi Concentration Camp in Bergen Belsen.

Timing, and Lady Luck lent a hand, but it was mostly the watchful eyes of his courageous Mother, Aunt and Grandmother that helped him through it all.

The one memory that will never leave him, is that of the emaciated body of his Grandmother being thrown like a sack of potatoes on to a mound of corpses.

Now an Irish citizen, Tomi Reichental joins John Greene on this week’s edition of Where the road takes me.

Starvation, disease, unbearable weather conditions and the brutality of Camp Commander Kramer and his side-kick, 22 year old Irma Grece – ‘The Beautiful Beast’, must all be overcome before liberation finally arrives. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm Sunday 31st May on C103″

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

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information re this Sunday evening’s programme (24th May 2020) on C103 at 7.  (S.R.)

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to a Consultant Oncologist who specialises in Prostate Cancer and a singer-songwriter who quotes Bob Dylan and Bono as his influences.

Inspiration from the Past on WTRTM at 7pm on C103 Today

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding this Sunday (17th May 2020) evening’s programme at 7 on C103.  (S.R.)

In unprecedented times like these, inspiration from others is a helpful tool to see us through.  In national and world history there are ample examples.

On Where the road takes me this Sunday evening, John Greene brings you the first of three programmes entitled ‘Inspiration from the past’.

The theme on all three is incarceration and how the incarcerated dug deep to battle unbelievable odds and in one case turn the tables on their captors.

While lockdown or self isolation for Covid-19 is definitely not  incarceration, it is hoped that the mental resolve of the people in our three stories will help you to deal with any problems associated with the aforementioned.

Programme one tells of how a romance blossomed in one of the most evil places on Earth, not only blossomed, but lasted for fifty eight years afterwards. [read more …] “Inspiration from the Past on WTRTM at 7pm on C103 Today”

“Where the Road Takes Me” Emphasises Positivity This Sunday on C103 at 7pm

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

The theme of this week’s edition of Where the road takes is positivity – a vital component of getting through these difficult times brought upon us by Covid-19.

John Greene has invited past contributors to the programme to give their personal observations on the virus and how it has effected their area.  It is mandatory for all the contributors that their words are positive and of a helpful nature.

A politician, a nun, a publican, a poet, a farmer and a parish priest have their say on how we can emerge from this pandemic mentally intact and with a new and positive outlook on life.

Architecture critic with the Financial Times, Edwin Heathcote returns to tell us how he got into hot water with one of his suggestions on working from home. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” Emphasises Positivity This Sunday on C103 at 7pm”
