    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

    Unwanted Gifts

    Now… it’s quite possible this has happened to you… you wake up on Christmas morning, tear the wrapping paper off the presents and then… the excitement turns to despair… It’s not what you’d asked Santa for… SO what do you do? You can re-gift or you can try and sell it off… Fred Larsson is the co-founder of Donedeal – a web site you can use to sell all your unwanted stuff. He gives us an idea of people's least liked or unwanted presents............

    Mitch Albom

    Mitch Albom is no stranger to a radio studio... he presents his own weekday show on WJR radio in Michigan, but to international audiences he’s better known as an author... he wrote the phenomenally successful ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ and his new novel delves again into the subject of the afterlife...

    In his new novel, "The First Phone Call From Heaven" Albom follows the residents of the small town of Coldwater, Michigan, several of whom begin to receive phone calls that seem to be from the dead, generally (though not always) close loved ones. The calls soon become a sensational media story, culminating in an international television and Internet broadcast that believers hope will prove the existence of heaven — and that at least one resident of Coldwater hopes will show that the calls are a hoax. Along the way, Albom continues his fictional investigation of faith, human connection and the desire for miracles when we need them most.

    The Overtones

    Now it’s really hard to believe that it’s been more than three years since The Overtones were last in this studio! Back then, they were only starting out and look at them now! Platinum sales, hit albums, singing for the Queen… And they’re back with a new album Saturday Night at the Movies and soon you’ll be able to see them live in Ireland.

    You can catch them live on Monday February 17th at the Cork Opera House and on Tuesday February 18th at Dublin’s Olympia…
