Welcome to Yarns from the Ards, where gone but not forgotten characters of the '50s go about their business around the Ards by foot, bicycle and loose approximations of motor cars.

Award winning author Hugh Robinson's keen eye for humour, nostalgia and intrigue takes you to a world where the previous owners of your first car might be a flock of chickens, where the intensity of romance could be measured in bars of chocolate, where a bunch of day trippers from Belfast were able to cause a culture clash in Donaghadee and where a single unsolved murder at Flush Hall could rock an entire town.

Whether as an ardent football supporter cheering on Ards at a packed Castlereagh Park, an embarrassed apprentice joiner driving nails through east Belfast water pipes, a shy youth on a date at the Ritz picture house or a mature man reflecting on bygone events, Hugh's marvellous turn of phrase will transport you right into the story in the same way that has captivated and delighted both readers and radio audiences over the years.
