Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 15th August

On ‘Where the road takes me’ this week, John Greene concludes the story of Joe Mac.  The former drummer, singer and comedian is the only surviving member of the Dixies Showband following the death of Seán Lucey on July 28th last.

Now eighty five years of age and sixty seven years in show business, it hasn’t been all laughs.

In 1981, tragedy strikes the family when Joe and Anne’s son Aidan and his wife Linda are killed in a road collision. 

And……

       Why Brendan O’Brien’s electrocution in the Stardust Ballroom in Cork, was not the beginning of the lead-singer’s demise. [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Where The Road Takes Me – Sunday 8th August

On July 28th last, with obvious sadness, we learned of the death of Seán Lucey, a former member of the Dixies Showband.

That leaves Joe Mac as the only surviving member of one of Ireland’s most popular bands.

This week on ‘Where the road takes me’ and in the first of a two part programme, John Greene brings you the Joe Mac Story.

We hear how Joe took the drums to his first gig on the Number 11 bus to Tivoli.

We hear how the Dixielanders became the Dixies and later Stage 2.

We hear how tragedy devastated his family in 1981 and his views on adoption.

And with Joe Mac, there’s always laughs and we bring you plenty of those too.0 [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” at 7pm this Sunday on C103″

Four Nights debut EP ‘Bed’

Congrats to Tommy Buckley going by name ‘Four Nights‘ who last week release his debut EP ‘Bed’. BreakingTunes says: “It  has all of the hallmarks of 80’s pop, and takes influence from the likes of The 1975, LANY, and Nightly. Big soundscapes, splashy snares and clean vocals are masterfully produced by Diffusion Lab’s Marcin Ciszczon, AKA Emiji.
In February 2020 Tommy set off to travel South East Asia for a year, but was forced to come home only after a month due to the pandemic. Suddenly with a lot of spare time in lockdown, he threw himself completely into music, writing more than 30 songs in a focused two month period.
He released his debut singles (‘Want You Always / Nothing to Say’) in November and quickly gained 100k+ Spotify streams and heavy rotation on national radio. He followed this up with ‘Grow So Cold’ and ‘Not This Time’ which gained placements on the ‘New Pop UK’ and ‘Chilled Pop Hits’ editorial playlists on Spotify. His debut EP ‘Bed’ followed in July.”

Give a listen to the five tracks on the EP at the bottom of this post:

Tommy was also interviewed for the Bellissimo Files on Spin 103. Listen here:
