A great man has died & needless to say Nelson Mandela looms large on our programme over the next hour. His cause capitivated so many of us & we will hear some of the music & talk to people about his special qualities. Extracts from Nelson Madela's speeches have been set to music many times, but only on one occasion did he agree to recording for music & that was for Irish musician, John Hughes who joins John on the line this morning.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/the-john-murray-show/programmes/2013/1206/491240-the-john-murray-show-friday-6-december-2013/?clipid=1372182
