Mornings With Dave Fanning

    Monday - Friday, 9 - 10am

    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

    Pat McCabe

    Pat Mc Cabe has a new play touring the country. It’s called The Bridge Below the Town and it’s set in 1950s Ireland. It has everything – love, life, nuns and Butlins... and the music has been chosen just as carefully as the words...  Pat describes the play as "like a Sixties Rosemary’s Baby meets Doris Day. Joan Crawford marries Patrick Kavanagh. It’s intriguing"

    Pat McCabe joins John in studio for his MyPod.

    Do Germans Have a Sense of Humour?

    We've often heard the generalisation that German's don't have a sense of humour!  But Petra Kindler is on a mission to shatter that illusion.  She wants to tackle the yawning stereotype that Germans don't have a sense of humour.

    Meeting the Queen

    Last week we spoke to Pat O’Connell, the fishmonger from the English Market in Cork, about his invitation to Buckingham Palace.

    Waterford scientist Emma Verling also told us that she has been invited to meet the Queen. A ‘day dress’ is required for the event.. and again lots of very kind listeners were in touch with us. And the woman who will be dressing Emma to meet the Queen is Martina Collins. Martina runs a boutique called Satina, located at Queen Street (appropriately enough), in Tramore, Co Waterford.
