Speaking about putting the compilation together, Pamela Blake, from Today FM, who worked with Tony as producer for many years says:
“This album is inspired by and dedicated to our dear friend and colleague Tony Fenton. Irish radio lost a shining light in 2015 and he is greatly missed. Tony was a genuine, soulful lover of music. He supported all of the artists on this record and relished having bands and singers live in studio for a chat and a song or two. You could hear the excitement in his voice over the radio when he was about to witness a live performance – and we’ll never forget that grin and sparkle in his eye of pure enjoyment and love for his work”.
