"POGUE MAHONEY" means kiss my ass in Irish. I am amazed at how many own this, and have it in their want list...maybe the highest numbers I've seen while entering my collection (it's #401, so far). I promise you that in 1985 if you were listening to this, you were very very unusual. In my memory, they just weren't that well-known in the US (west coast, anyway)
