    Mornings With Dave Fanning

    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle.

    Break-up Guide

    "Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go.." - so says the lyrics of a well-known pop song & who could disagree? Most of us have been the victim of a difficult break up, or are perhaps planning one for the near future. Whatever the case, Rena Maycock of Intro Matchmaking joins Dave with her guide to the five phases of breaking up.

    Warring Bands

    Of course Blur & Oasis aren't the only music acts to have squabbled so bitterly in the full glare of the record buying public and Roisin O' Dwyer, Commissioning Editor of Hot Press joins Dave in studio to tell us about some of the less savoury ones.

    Cycling History

    The dispute over flying the Union flag at council buildings has rumbled on in NI & there its no surprise to hear that the flag debate has been ongoing for decades. In 1934, it was the catalyst for a row in cycling with Ireland's best athletes being prevented from competing internationally. Historian Ryle Dwyer joins Dave this morning.
