RIP Gay Byrne. If you followed U2 in the 80s, you probably saw one of his interviews with the band for The Late Late Show on RTE.  https://www.breakingnews.ie/discover/a-nation-that-adored-him-

Two deaths today that hit hard. 

Firstly, Carlos Ruiz Zafon. One of my favourite authors, best known for "The Shadow of the Wind". He was only 55 and had been receiving treatment for cancer:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-53107010

Desert Island Discs....

Very sad, indeed. Many many hours spent reading those too, Always keeping me up to date on the good music coming out across the ocean, and didn’t hurt that they were always quite keen on U2.

Oh yes, there is an interview with Bono I still have to read in the very last Q. That's why I bought it.
