    Season 518 - Eire

    I thought someone would have covered this one, "Dublin In The Rare Old Times" by Pete St John (born Peter Mooney), he is best known for "Fields of Atherny" Written in the 70's, its quite a long song

    Season 517: Wind

    There was a bit of discussion early on about "The Wind They Call Mariah" I thought someone may have had a go by now. Anyway here is my take. I was pleased I managed to do it without looking at chords or words, although I will admit it took a few takes.

I wanted to play this through without looking at words, after about 30 goes almost! I stuffed the outro, anyway no more time to get right:-( The...

    Season 511 It's Essential!

    I found it hard to think of a song, eventually remembered this one, "My Old Mans a Dustman" Lonny Donnegan In case you don't know a "dustman" is a garbage/rubbish/ collector employed to collect your weekly household waste.

    Hi Griff? You did real well with your water theme last week, and I indicated I would also support you. So today I have donated AU$100 to WaterAid in the name of my daughter Antonia. Its great when we can put our love of ukulele to support worthwhile causes, all the best cheers Paul

    SEASON 504- Music as an empathetic friend

    Ha! I misread the theme and thought it was about songs that were about or led to domestic violence :unsure: No as I went to upload I see it is maybe more about hope and positive stuff.
