Saturday morning on Grafton Street with music from Kila and a three headed Diceman who remains tight lipped.
Mary Kingston and Kevin O'Connell are in Grafton Street where there is the promise of a chat with The Diceman and music from traditional band Kíla.
Currently starring in the short film 'Metal Man', directed by Geraldine Creed and Brendan McCarthy, The Diceman makes an appearance on ‘Scratch Saturday’ as an incarnation of a three headed man.
Unfortunately for viewers, the pledge of an in-depth interview by reporter Kevin O’Connell does not materialise, which leads presenter Andy Ruane in the studio to ask
Are you sure he can talk?
Buskers Kíla provide a different form of entertainment with a traditional tune. They are brothers Rossa O’Snodaigh (percussion), Colm Ó Snodaigh (flute), Rónán Ó Snodaigh (bodhrán) and Colm Mac Con Iomaire (fiddle).
This episode of ‘Scratch Saturday’ was broadcast on 7 April 1990. The presenters are Mary Kingston and Andy Ruane, and the reporter is Kevin O'Connell.
'Scratch Saturday' was a children's programme which was first broadcast on 23 September 1989 and ran into the nineties.
