a witty look at the world of wordsmiths

John Shortis’s quirky take on some of the world’s great songs and songwriters, but from the point of view of the lyrics. You’ll hear Shortis waxing lyrical about something he’s
passionate about, Moya singing, and the extra bonus of a couple of spots
created by Peter J. Casey. And their favourite hot band of Ian Blake, Jon Jones and Dave O’Neill.

This time the topic is lyrics and lyricists, and includes songs by the
likes of Dylan, Cohen, Guthrie, Shortis, Lennon, Mercer, Berlin, Hammerstein,
Paul Kelly, Joni Mitchell etc. There’ll be fun segments like Mondegreens,
banned lyrics and much much more.

Imaginative, informative, funny and moving. Don’t miss it.
