    Mornings With Dave Fanning

    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle.


    Bereaved but Divorced

    The death of a spouse is a traumatic event for anyone but when you & your partner have divorced, moved on, maybe remarried & had children with other people, the death of an ex-husband/wife, while upsetting, can present you with a lot of questions.

    In studio with Dave is author Laurie Graham who recently wrote a newspaper article about her own experience.


    Millionaire Traveller - Johnny Ward

    Many of us might dream of chucking in our nine-to-five jobs to travel the world but very few of us actually do it. Johnny Ward is a young Irishman who's done just that & Dave spoke to him from Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo last week .

    Johnny's website is / Twitter at @onestep4ward.


    Tour Managing - behind the scenes

    When people attend music shows & festivals, they just concentrate on the gigs & not the work that goes into putting them on, the pre-post productions teams, people who make it all happen behind the scenes.  Some travel the world, producing shows & managing tours.

    In studio this morning are Tour Managers, Paddy McPoland & Suzie Shorten.
