    The John Murray Show

    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle, presented by Neil Delamere.


    Music & Chat with The High Kings

    Neil's first guests this morning are The High Kings, tomorrow the Ireland Rugby Team are playing England at Twickenham & luckily for the team they will have the assistance of a 16th man or indeed a group of 16th men - as The High Kings have been enlised to lead the spectators & the nation in singing Ireland's Call.


    Consultant Nutritionist, Gaye Godkin

    Do you always find yourself craving sugar in the middle of the afternoon & find you can't resist eating chocolate and sweets? Well, it sounds like you could be suffering from what's called the 'four o'clock'  afternoon slump. Consultant Nutritionist, Gaye Godkin joins Neil in studio this morning.


    What's App in Dublin

    Yesterday we heard the news that Facebook bought Smartphone app 'what's app' for an amazing 19 billion dollars! Colm Flynn decided to check out our Digital Hub in Dublin to find out what new apps are being created here.


    Book - Sonic Wonderland A Scientific Odyssey of Sound

    Neil's next guest travels all over the world, but he's more interested in how a place sounds rather that how it looks. His view is that if you don't think about the sound of where you are, you are missing out on a lot. Neil is joined this morning by Professor Trevor Cox, professor of Acoustic Engineering at Salford University.

    His book is titled 'Sonic Wonderland A Scientific Odyssey of Sound.
