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

We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this week’s programme at 7pm on C103 on Sunday, 21st June 2020.  (S.R.)

This week on ‘Where the road take me’, John Greene concludes the three part programme ‘Inspiration from the past’.   

The failure of the 1916 Rising, proved, that while the Irish were willing, they weren’t able or ready for the power of the enemy.    Those who were rounded up in its aftermath were shipped off to Frongoch prison camp in a remote part of Wales, and left basically to their own devices.  The camp now became known as a ‘University of Revolution’.  As a result, when the ‘War of Independence’ came about, the Irish were still willing, but as a result of the secret training they received at Frongoch, they were now also ready and able.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” This Sunday at 7pm on C103″

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

We thank Presenter John Greene for advance information regarding his Sunday (14th June 2020) Radio Programme.  (S.R.)

It’s a Where the Road Takes Me ‘Special’ this week, as John Greene brings you the story of a Lockdown with a difference.

In a working-class district of West London, a mother calls her son, who has Asperger’s Syndrome’, downstairs for dinner.

Both she and her husband are unaware that their youngest has amassed 73 million dollars while trading in the financial markets on his home computer in his bedroom.

Neither are they aware that their son will become the focus of a global manhunt for allegedly causing the most mysterious financial crash in history.

Multi agencies, including the FBI will seek his extradition to the US where he faces a total of 378 years jail term.  

This is a ‘David and Goliath’ story at it’s very best.  But why is a home lockdown involved and still is, as we speak.  [read more …] ““Where the Road Takes Me” on C103 This Sunday at 7pm”
