He might be breaking records with his contribution to music but Daniel O’Donnell is cross that he can’t listen to other people’s music.
The Donegal crooner has an axe to grind with car manufacturers when it comes to modern technology.
In act, he recently wanted to listen to another Donegal artist’s new album on a long journey but couldn’t.
He revealed “The biggest damn thing of it all is that the cars they are making now have no CD player. I couldn’t believe that.
“I hired a car one day — I was in England — and I had taken Moya Brennan’s new album to play it. Well, I got into the car, and I was looking everywhere to see where I would put in the CD and there was none in it.
“Then I realised that is the future. If you want a CD player in a car now, you have to request it.”
O’Donnell’s latest album Walkin’ In the Moonlight has just charted at No 23 in the British charts, continuing his 31-year streak of charting a new album every year.
“There’s a lot anyway. People are telling me I’m breaking records — I never set out to make a record, never mind break one,” he laughs.
