Ahead of his series of 'On The Road Again' gigs, Something Happens lead vocalist and radio presenter Tom Dunne sat down with Rob in their respective virtual studios (aka attic spaces). They talked about how Tom hooked up with Fiachna Γ“ BraonΓ‘in (of the Hothouse Flowers) and Alan Connor for the tour and what audiences can expect from the shows. They then discussed the dark art of songwriting and attempted to identify what makes a good song. The conversation also included some chat about Tom's love of vinyl records and how that love is reflected in the next generation. Finally, Tom revealed a few humorous tidbits about Something Happens, including how he once got left behind by the band on tour in California.

An edited version of this podcast was broadcast on Beat 102-103 on Sunday 4th September on Irish Beats with Rob O'Connor.
