Thoughts For The Day

Welcome to the Church of Goggins. Today we bring you a couple of sermons from Ireland.

The first guest speaker is Tom McBride of Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan - better known as Big Tom, the King of Irish Country music. Mr Big Tom speaks out against the hypocrisy of the "Sunday Morning Christian" who make a great show of their beliefs yet behave in a most Un-Christian manner the rest of the week.

The second guest speaker is the Reverend William McCrea, Democratic Unionist Party MP for South Antrim and purveyor of religious country music. His target is the so-called Christians who find endless "Excuses" not to attend church at all.

If you are a Sunday Morning Christian or an excuse-maker, I hope this will give you pause for thought.

NEWS FLASH: In completely unrelated news, I will be taking down the links for June next weekend. So if you are a fan of Mexican psych, old folkies or African rock, jazz, reggae and country, this is your last chance to have a listen. To save wading through everything, all the links are here:

As a final treat, here's Big Tom with "If It's Lonesome At Your Table". Top organ work by John Beattie ("the man who made the sound his own") and MCing by Henry McMahon.
