This morning Brendan Shine joins John in studio. His song 'O'Brien has no place to go' was his first hit song in 1971. It was to be only the first of the Athlone man's many successful records, topping the charts with no fewer than 45 singles, 5 of which reached the number No 1 spot & he has at least 40 albums to his name to boot!
The late, great Joe Dolan once famously said, 'Brendan Shine has more tracks than Irish Rail'.
