I first saw this special when Showtime aired it back in 1986. Why did I miss this when it was featured on NBC? Tom and his family moved from Tampa to New York City so that Pancho (Dad) could work. Unfortunately, he's a proud man that didn't like his brother Jack, give his son a guitar.
Tom meets up with a fellow shoe shiner named Patrick. When he saw Patrick's basement full of band instruments, Tom made up his mind that he wanted music for a career. They finally get an act together when they went to Delaney's Irish Restaurant, touching the heart of the owner and customers, performing "Danny Boy" (aka Londonderry Aire).
