These are our three finalists from over 550 entrants to the John Murray Show/Saturday Night Show emerging music competition. Chanele McGuinness, Gary Showbiz and The New Transmission will battle it out in our live Studio 8 final on the John Murray Show on Thursday, May 29th for that coveted slot on the Saturday Night Show on May 31st.
In the next hour we're going to be celebrating the life and music of one of the country's greatest folk singers of all time, Luke Kelly as today is the 30th anniversary of his death. We will also have some fantastic music from some of the country's finest musicians, John Sheehan, Damien Dempsey, Paddy Reilly & Finbar Furey. John is also joined a large crowd of listeners who have made their way here from all over the country for a special show this morning!
