Paul O'Mahony's musical life in Limerick (1965 - 1968) Ireland included very little Irish music.

Part 1 To get the full value of this episode - you'll have to listen in a silent room (perhaps even a vacuum). Because Simon & Jana speak very softly (and my studio volume control dial wasn't able to amplify the sound). Bernard Stanley "Acker" Bilk, MBE (28 January 1929 – 2 November 2014) was an English clarinetist and vocalist ... "Stranger on the Shore" is the music I still listen to. Part 2 Feeling guilty while listening to music doesn't feel right - does it? Music you might not expect me to love: "I'm the king of the jungle" "The hills are alive with the sound of music" "South Pacific".

Insidious I was walking along a couple of roads, one turned to the sea, the wave, the water, the tide ... one sloped to the mountain, the scree, the rock, the peak ... I followed a breath like a hunter. There were distractions, high like eagles, busy like bees, imaginations like sugar, addictions, paradise, a sweet-shop shining scent of fish nectar, pollen, ice. I was walking along a couple of roads when the earth gave birth to twins, and twins to twins I followed a breath like a hunted fox. ______________ Read by the poet Paul O'Mahony Recorded in kitchen in Cork on 16 July 2018
