The Songaminute Man

How Music Brought My Father Home Again

Simon McDermott

As Simon McDermott’s father Ted succumbed to Alzheimer’s, the one thing that could bring him back was music; a video of the pair belting out Ted’s favourite song, ‘Volare’, became a worldwide hit. In this tribute, Simon tells his dad’s story: of growing up, the eldest of 14, in postwar Lancashire, of rationing, sleeping top-to-toe, adventuring in the woods, and the birth of a lifelong passion for music.
