    The John Murray Show Wednesday 12 June 2013


    The John Murray Show

    A lively mix of topical stories, human interest and lifestyle features with Miriam O'Callaghan


    25 Years Ago Today - Ray Houghton

    Time for a bit of nostalgia, it was 25 years ago today June 12th - on this day in 1962 three prisoners escaped from Alcatraz - 1964 Nelson Mandela was jailed for life & in 1965 we first heard of the Rolling Stones. Of coure there were many other events, but in particular in 1988 Ray Houghton scored that significant goal against England in Stuttgart! & the man behind that winning goal for Ireland was Ray Houghton, who is on the line to Miriam this morning.


    Anne Gildea

    Miriam's next guest is comedienne, Anne Gildea, who is speaking to us from St. James's Hospital, having had an operation last Wednesday to reconstruct her breast.  Many of our listeners will remember Anne's story of having cancer & it is nearly two years since Anne spoke to John Murray after getting the news she had breast cancer.

    A Fantastic Fundraising concert 'A Musician & her Surgeon' takes place on June 18th  in the Royal College of Surgeons @ 7.15pm. For further details & tickets go to



    Cerys Matthews

    When was the last time you sang out loud, was it this morning in the shower? Or, maybe, you’re too shy to sing, you think you’re not good enough but all is not lost. Help is at hand as Miriam's next guest Cerys Matthews, former lead singer of Catatonia, solo artist, broadcaster & author, tells us about her her latest book ' Hook, Line & Singer'.
