19/12/2017 - 'Somebody's Stewed the Tea, Ma!'

There's a smell that has disappeared from homes here. If you had to go to Cullyhanna to deliver a turkey how would you get there?

There's a smell that has disappeared from homes here. It's the smell of stewed tea. Iris's granny used to keep the teapot on the cooker all day, and the smell was terrible. Can you stew tea with teabags? There was also a terrible smell in hairdressers too. If you had to go to Cullyhanna to deliver a turkey how would you get there? Janet would head to Omagh, Sean would head to Ballymena. A listener has had the line 'There's A Tear In Your Eye' running round her head all day. But is it from 'When Irish Eyes Are Smiling' or 'You Seldom Come To See Me Any More'? Music from Chuck Berry, Beach Boys, Jim Reeves, Walter Brennan and more.
