Marion Ryan

There are two generations of Ryan in the Song Tunnel – Marion Ryan “the Marilyn Monroe of popular song”, and her sons the songwriting and singing partnership Paul and Barry Ryan. Marion Ryan had a string of hit singles even recording the UK’s first stereo 45rpm in 1958 and became a household name through hosting the TV show ‘Spot the Tune’.
