    They're the biggest boy band on the planet, playing sold-out concerts all over the world............ and this weekend they're in Dublin.

    Fair City

    Fair City was pretty tense last night as the storyline involving Dr Judith Dillon and her ex-husband Tommy came to an explosive finale and we were all left wondering....will Bob make it?  Is Tommy going off to jail for a long long time?

    This morning in studio are two of the actors Catherine Byrne and Geoff Minogue in studio and they are joined by phone from America by Bryan Murray.

    Hot Press magazine described Ultan Conlon's first album as "the most impressive Irish debut since Damien Rice's O".

    He is in studio to sing 2 songs, one from his new album Songs of Love So Cruel, called "In the Mad..........."  and a cover version of Dancing in the Moonlight.
