The Rolling Wave

Sunday, 9 -10 pm

The Rolling Wave Sunday 5 January 2014

The Rolling Wave is 10 years on the air in September this year and for the final programme of this month - Sun 25th September - we're asking you to select the music and song.

It can be anything from the traditional or folk world - perhaps a commercial recording or an archive piece or a recording made by the Rolling Wave that you've heard and liked.

You can email suggestions to therollingwave@rte.ie   or post to The Rolling Wave, RTÉ Radio One, Dublin 4 or Twitter @TheRollingWave.

Also, congratulations to Siobhan Ní Mhurchú of Dún Garbhán, Mary Doyle of Co. Longford and Ciarán Ferrie of Dublin 6 - all winners of The Gloaming 2. The correct answer was Harry Lauder - the author of "Roamin' in the Gloaming".  And thanks to all of you who entered.

The Rolling Wave

Songs from Iain Mackintosh and Eric Bogle to mark the centenary year of the start of World War One, music from a new disc by the Friel sisters of Glasgow, tunes from a 2005 album called “Tunes”, a song The January Man from Christy Moore and a new quiz to kick off 2014.

About The Show

Named after a famous traditional Irish tune, The Rolling Wave is a sharp ear and a close eye on the world of traditional and folk music in Ireland.

Sunday, 10.00pm on RTÉ Radio 1

Competition

Congratulations to Declan Conneely, Moycullen and Geraldine Greene, Ennis - winners of copies of Charlie Piggott and Gerry Harrington’s  CD “The New Road”.

The answer is: Dé Dannan.

Thanks for all the entries and the next quiz is for copies of the new CD “Our Dear Dark Mountain with the Sky over it" which we discussed with Seán McErlaine on the Rolling Wave of 26th/27th July last. 

The question: From what Ulster counties does the music on the “Dear Dark Mountain” CD come? Plenty of clues in the programme with Seán and you can listen back to it all on this page.
