Glorious !!!!

If you were ever tempted to read someone else's diary, then this is the podcast for you. Laugh out loud funny, whimsical and with the odd salacious nugget thrown in, Nicholas Quirke is a fabulous story teller ably assisted by Penny his friend. Please give it a listen.

Touches something deep inside

Hard to explain why these recollections are so charming .
I guess it’s partly the lyrical voice of Quirke combined with the simple snap shots of his stories. His memories are obviously details of his own life narrative but in listening to them somehow they bring are own to mind .
The music adds to the ambiance perfectly
A real treat and highly recommended.

He makes me laugh every week

I’m not sure what it is about this podcast, but I’m giggling 5 minutes in, gurgling with laughter halfway through and laughing like a drain by the end. Nicholas Quirke is a GREAT storyteller and the stories he tells plunge the listener into the weird world of the 70s and 80s. Please have a listen, it’s well worth your time!!
