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

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. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 14th March 2021 at 7pm on C103.  (S.R.) 

Where The Road Takes Me

On this week’s edition of ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene speaks to Dr. Alan Desmond who was born and raised in Blarney.

Trained in CUH and Bantry General Hospital, Alan is now one of the leading young Consultant Gastro-Enterologists in the UK and leading Clinician at the Devon Gut Clinic. 

During his time at the frontline of the hospital’s Covid-19 wards he encountered many patients who were also suffering from Chronic diseases and thus limiting their chances of recovery. 

It’s time he says that people should know the facts about our Western diet and think seriously of adopting a plant-based food diet.

Easier said than done, as we Irish love our cow. 

However, Skibbereen based Nutritionist Majella o’Neill also joins in and offers a happy medium. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″
