I had not realised that I was also captured in this historic image by John Reidy as I continued to video the historic occasion in Ballydesmond in 2000.  I later photographed Marian by the graveside also and presented it to her some years later at a Book Launch in Dublin kindly coordinated by Marie O’Connor of Duarigle who is related to the late Marian.  May Marian rest in peace – Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

“Where the Road Take Me” – Bay City Rollers – C103 7pm Sunday

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information on this Sunday evening’s programme – 5th Jan. 2020.  (S.R.)

It was certainly debatable, but they were heralded as the greatest group since the Beatles.

A bunch of scruffy youngsters from Edinburgh called ‘The Bay City Rollers’ became a tartan teen sensation in the 1970s.

By the late 70s, Rollermania followed and Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir, Derek Longmuir, Stuart ‘Woody’ Wood and Eric Faulkner were known worldwide.  

Songs like ‘Remember’, ‘Shang-a-Lang’ and ‘All of me loves all of you’ were top ten hits, while ‘Bye Bye baby’ remained at No 1 in the UK charts for six weeks in 1975. [read more …] ““Where the Road Take Me” – Bay City Rollers – C103 7pm Sunday”
