Description

UTV presenter Leslie Dawes drops in on a recording session with the Royal Showband.

The band's Tom Dunphy is interviewed. 

Notes

Forming in the late-1950s, and enduring until the mid-1970s, the Royal Showband enjoyed considerable success both at home in Ireland - they hailed from Waterford - and across the UK.

Notably, they performed for the Queen, on the Royal Variety Show in 1960.

When they played The Pavilion, in Liverpool, in 1962, they were supported by a fresh-faced local band, The Beatles!
