Moloney Sticks to The Script.....At Last!

Sunday 17th August 2008


I started with thanks to Kat Rudge who filled in on the 10th August whilst I was swanning about in France. Thanks again Kat. The first record this week was The Feeling and Turn It Up.


The featured band this week was Irish. They’re called the Script and I played the following tracks variously between 7am and 10
