*******www.balconytv.ie BALCONYTV DUBLIN 24/01/2009 PRESENTED BY PAULINE FREEMAN I'm a song and dance man - I bring in a good lyric and a good vibe or beat, a song or tune that can sway and touch and stir whatever part of you it hits. I like to think that I can write a song that carries a story because I'm a great believer in storytelling. It's an ancient art and I grew up with storytelling and surrounded by great storytellers. I've travelled a bit in my day - not the holiday kind of travel but more on the road in your face kind of travelling and I like to include my experiences in my song writing. Most of my rambling was done by hitchhiking - I come from a nation of ramblers and rovers namely The Irish. Once upon a time I ran a folk club with my friend Nicky Leahy called "The Rakes Of Kildare" and any and everyone whose famous today in Irish Trad/Folk/Rock 'n' Roll played in that club - Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Luka Bloom, Mary Black, Paul Brady, Freddie White, Andy Irvine, Na Fili, Liam O'Flynn, Sean Keane, Jimmy Crowley, Paddy Glacken, Tony McMahon, the list goes on and on. The club ran for about three years in the mid seventies in Newbridge. I've written about two and a half thousand songs or maybe more, it's an addiction, I write one and throw it in the corner and re discover it about a year or so later and think "did i write that?!"... But it's all fun - better go now cos i feel a song comin on and the first line goes - "See you in the spring when the sun kicks in" *******www.myspace****/paulmccormacknewbridge Tune in again tomorrow!!!
