    The John Murray Show Thursday 8 May 2014


    The John Murray Show

    A lively mix of entertainment, human interest and lifestyle, presented by John Murray.


    Philip Shepherd author & speaker

    Now if you were told that the brain in your skull is not the only brain you have, you might politely raise your eyebrows! On the other hand mentioning gut instinct, you might understand a little more. In studio with John this morning is author Philip Shepherd, to talk about our two brains.

    Philip Shepherd gives a talk tonight Thursday , May 8th, at 7.30pm in the Lantern Centre, Synge St, Dublin 8 and the workshop takes place in the Zephyr Room at the same venue from 10am to 5pm over that weekend.


    Music & Chat 'This is How We Fly'

    Have you head the one about a traditional Irish fiddler, an appalachian hard shoe dancer, a Dublin jazzman & a swedish percussionist? Well, they got together to make a beautiful sound & they perform for us in studio this morning from their debut self titled album 'This is How we Fly'.

    {Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on fiddle, Seán MacErlaine on bass clarinet, saxophones & electronics, Nic Gareiss  - former Chieftains/Dervish collaborator on percussive dance & Petter Berndalen - ground-breaking Swedish percussionist}
