    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

    Brit Pop - 20 Years on

    It's quite hard to believe that it is has been 20 years since the release of Blur's song Girl & Boys & that album was called Parklife. It was at the very beginning of Britpop - a musical and cultural phenomenon prominent in the 1990s. Kathryn is joined in studio by Matthew Devereux from The Pale, to take a trip down memory lane with us.

    Matthew is releasing a new single with The Pale called “What Would The Smiths Do?”  visit www.thepale.ie
