In praise of men whose goal in life is to give us The Truth

NO matter how often it happens, it still surprises me. I am listening to the third hour of Off the Ball on Newstalk, with Eoin McDevitt and Ken Early talking about football, when I hear the music.

It's been playing in the background all the time, but because I am concentrating deeply on the fine talk, it hasn't registered with me. Now I realise it's there, this strange rambling jazz-rock music playing in the background as Ken makes some urbane observation about the state of the game.
