Today is St. Patrick’s Day, Lá le Phádraig as Gaeilge, and although the day of celebration has little religious relevance these days anywhere in the world, it has become a good excuse for a celebration. Not least because we are a small nation and it allows us to take the world stage for a while. My family and I went to the City today to see the parade. It was very cold but we enjoyed it nonetheless. I felt for the participants though, some very very obviously feeling the cold.
Anyway, on today’s show, I wanted to talk a little bit about success. I was listening to Ray Hefferenan’s Irish Songwriter’s Podcast on iTunes. In particular an episode with singer-songwriter Harry Hoban. Harry had a view on success and I thought I’d share it. He claimed he didn’t write for the listener, he instead wrote for himself.
