I wasn’t going to put up a show this week in order to mark the untimely and very sad passing of Colin McQuillan of Runnin Riot. But it was pointed out to me that silence is probably not the way that Colin would want to be remembered. So Tommy , Donal and I picked a few tunes we thought Colin would like. Here they are, all tunes, no talking.
