We awoke to the very sad news on Tuesday the 17th of April, that the great Tom McBride, or Big Tom as he was known to his legions of fans and admirers across Ireland, the United Kingdom, Europe, and indeed the whole world.
On the #MidMorningShow with Paul and Gerry this morning they looked back on the life and times of the man himself with contributions from one of his oldest friends, Margo, Ryan Tubridy and our own Michael Commins who had known the McBrides for over thirty years. You can listen back to the show, laced throughout with memories from his many fans across the region and of course Big Tom's amazing catalogue of hits which kept the country dancing since the 1960's now on our listen back facility here (http://www.midwestradio.ie/index.php/listen-back Hour two starts at 12pm)
Below is our interview with Michael Commins who recorded the last ever interview with Tom just a couple of weeks ago for his Midwest Radio show. Watch back now. #RIPTom
