The Panto Podcast

Ep 22 - John Linehan MBE

February 21, 2019

Celebrating his 30th year at the Grand Opera House in Belfast in 2019/20, my guest this week is best known in Northern Ireland as May McFetteridge. John tells me how he stumbled his way to become the larger than life character. We talk about how he came up with the characters name and about what it was like performing shows during the troubles.

And also try and spot which key character from pantomime we both forgot about when we were against the clock choosing his Dream Panto (whoops).
