Γιώργος Κατσαρός

That I learned Saturday night in «Stin Igia Mas»
on ΣΚΑΪ TV, there was «O Georgos o Katzaros»,
a lovely musician and person.

Listen to it on YouTube, just search for Kokkino Garifalo Nana Mouskouri & Yannis Parios —- I have problem to copy the link!

Saw this grafitti out at the mole of town, and Google tells me it is written: «SHOULD BEGIN TO BREAKS … BUT MAKEDONIA WHO WILL GET THERE WILL BE GREEK!» I would say it is written: «You work till you die … But Makedonia who will put you in the grave is Greek !» Sorry if I made bad translation …
