Catholic Radio Roadshow Coming to Brighton

"Starry, starry night...", or not in this case...

I was terribly excited when I was was told a Catholic Radio Roadshow coming to Brighton. When I learned more about it, I realised that Don Mclean was performing...but alas not in Brighton. It looks like Don's involvement with the roadshow will end in Coventry or somewhere. [Update: It is not THE Don Mclean, it is a comedian who goes by the same name - not the musical legend, Don Mclean!]

Unfortunately, at Coventry and elsewhere on the Catholic Radio Roadshow it's not Don McLean the singer/songwriter, but Don MacLean who's evidently a comedian. I hope there won't be Don McLean fans asking for their money back when they realise they've got a comedian instead of a legend!

BTW Don McLean will be at Glastonbury this year evidently.
