    Mornings with Dave Fanning Search for Ireland’s Most Musical Family

    Brothers, sisters, cousins, in-laws, step fathers, grannies – the show is looking for families that play together to enter the competition. Non family members are permitted – as long as family is at the heart of it – as with The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and The Fureys and Davey Arthur.

    Send us a 4’00 maximum clip performing the song or music of your choice – it does not need to be an original piece of music.

    Upload it to Youtube and email us the link to davefanning@rte.ie.

    You also need to send us a 100 word supporting paragraph telling us your story and why you should be chosen.

    The closing date for entries is 5pm on Wednesday  26th August.

    Our final will be held the first week in September and finalists need to be available then to perform before our judges.

    The judges’ decision is final.

    The prize courtesy of Waltons music is a Kurzweil CUP-2 Upright Digital Piano. For more information visit  www.waltons.ie

    Eminem Rapper Comp

    One immient gig is conspicuous by its general advert absence & that is the Eminem gig at Slane this weekend,  because the don't have to - it is a sure sell out. Here is a reminder of some of his music & we would like to hear from some of our listeners who would like to give a little shot at rapping a verse of an Eminem song for a prize!  In studio with Kathryn is Matthew Devereux of The Pale rock band & Dublin's own rapper, Collie Collins.

    Our three rappers are Ellen, Conor & Bob.

    Pen pals with James 'Whitey' Bulger

    Joining Kathryn from our Limerick studio is John Deeley, with an amazing story of receiving correspondence from a man in prison in Boston, no ordinary person but mobster James 'Whitey' Bulger on whether they would be related! The story made front page news of the Boston Herald & a BBC documentary has been made of this fascinating story.
