sodshow header

I was delighted travelling through Dublin city this week when as always, tuned to The Sodshow I heard Peter and Brian playing Cottage in the Country as their chosen Song of the Week.

For those who are not aware, The Sodshow is Irelands only garden radio show and is Irelands Best Podcast. An award it has won for the last two years.

Listen to The SodShow:

And though the song did air live on todays Sodshow, it’s not available in Podcast version.

Fantastic support as always from Brian and Peter. Thanks boys
