Silly Scully

In this orphan scrap from the RTE Archives, presenter, Gay Byrne, takes a call spoof call from a 'Mr. Scully'.

He explains to Gay the value of staying at home for your holidays and how Pele and the other Brazilian team of the 1970s wouldn't survive a game of football in Dublin.

We think this maybe from a 1973 edition of the Prescott's sponsored programme.

May 2012

The Curious Ear is produced by Ronan Kelly
