    The John Murray Show Friday 5 July 2013


    The John Murray Show with Miriam

    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle features with Miriam O'Callaghan.


    Tribute to Bernie Nolan

    Singer & actress Bernie Nolan died yesterday aged 52 after a long fight against breast cancer. We had spoke to her sister Colleen on our programme recently & here we have a reminder of that interview, followed by the Nolan Sisters hit 'I'm in the Mood for Dancing'.


    Sex Lives of people with intellectual disabilities

    The sex lives of people with intellectual disability is a topic rarely discussed & almost never depicted on screen or on stage. Society seems to prefer to imagine that they simply dont exist. A play currently in the Galway Festival aims to change all that. Petal Pilley is the Director of the play 'The Sanctuary' & joins Miriam in studio along with lead female actor Charlene Kelly& lead male actor Kieran Coppinger, who has Down's Syndrome.

    The Corporate Gig

    Rolling Stones, Madonna, along with public concerts, big names can make big bucks from private performances. Recently Van Morrison was flown from Ireland to provide entertainment at George Lucas's wedding, Jennifer Lopez sang at the President of Turkmenistans's birthday party! Joining Miriam in studio is Cait O'Riordan, formerly of the Pogues for a short history of the lucrative private & corporate gig.


    Dropping of Brian O'Driscoll

    As the shock & disappointment about the dropping of Brian O'Driscoll from the final Lions test match tomorrow rumbles on. Journalist & author, Paul Kimmage is currently writing Brian's biography with the rugby star & he joins Miriam on the line from the Tour de France to give his reaction.


    Whale Pilot

    For five years now the Discovery Channel has had a surprise ratings hit with its series 'Whale Wars'. The tv programme follows the activities of a controversial & combative campaign against Japanese whalers. On the line to Miriam, is Patrick O'Donoghue, a young helicopter pilot from Kerry who is one of the stars of the new series.
