Shane McGowan is the sometimes punky, sometimes genius, often disgusting lead singer and the soul of the alternative trad/rock band, the Pogues. In spite of - some have said because of - his alcoholism and hard living, he has written some the iconic songs of this sub-genre of Irish music which combines reels, jigs, sadness, exuberance, and poignancy. On this edition of a Celtic Sojourn, Brian O'Donovan explores the songs of Shane McGowan as performed by himself and many other contemporary singers.
