In Show Notes on October 19, 2006 by alanswan

Hi, here’s today’s show notes from another edition of the Take a Break show. Firstly music wise ARTIST/SONG: A-HA with The sun Always Shines On TV, Aretha Franklin-Respect, Rod Stewart-Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Natalie Imbruglia-Wishing I Was There, Luan Parle-Corporate Culture, U2-With Or Without You, The Feeling-Love It When You Call, Madonna-La Isla Bonita, Pat Benatar-Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Paul Brady-Long Goodbye, Bee Gees-Secret Love, Michael Jackson-The Way You Make Me Feel, CLASSIC NO1 @ QUARTER TO ONE: LOs Lobos with La Bamba.

Shownotes wise we talked about how we as a nation spend nearly 3 and a half grand on cigarettes every day, International Credit Union day and how a betrayed wife sold all her husbands possessions on ebay. Jim Gibbons was also on hand and answered all your gardening questions.

Finally Hector Ó hEochagáin joined us on the show to talk about his brand new book’ HECTOR’S WORLD’. Great fella and the perfect guest to chat away! Here is the full details in case you need more info: “Hector’s World is a hilarious compilation of stories from Hector’s travels and includes all the tales that make his TV series unmissable viewing such as running with the bulls in Pamplona, stripping with the Chippendales in Las Vegas, rodeo riding in Tennessee, soliciting in Amsterdam and breaking into jail in La Paz.  It also tells the stories they couldn’t show: the saga of the tattooed arse, getting married in Rio, Yuri Geller’s lunacy in Reading and how half the Cuba show was shot in Galway”

According to Penguin, the books publishers “The book is fully illustrated with photographs and memorabilia from Hector’s travels and includes lots of anecdotes, observations and painfully hilarious “cautionary tales”!  His ordinariness, sense of mischief and uninhibited approach makes him popular with every generation”. Published by Penguin Ireland at €19.99

That’s all for today, The Take a Break show live tomorrow from 11am. AS
