God bless Henry McCullough July 21st 1943 – June 14th 2016

We present this special edition of Wang Dang Doodle that was first broadcast on Nov 9th 2012, days after Henry suffered a massive heart attack. Since then he has been nursed by his incredible wife Josie. And today, while she held his hand and they listened to a song he’d written about their love, the song Foolish Heart, Henry slipped away.
