If you were listening a couple of weeks ago, you would have heard the great news that MOONEY TUNES is back!
This will be the ninth in our highly successful series of concerts, in association with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
The concert will take place at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on December 16th 2013.
And before you start calling, can we tell you that tickets for the show WILL NOT be on sale until October, most likely.
But right now, we're putting the word out to YOU, our listeners, to get your letters in as soon as possible!
Remember, MOONEY TUNES is all about you, the dedicated MOONEY listeners. And we want you to nominate a piece of music that has a special resonance in YOUR life.
You can nominate absolutely ANY piece of music, whether it's pop music, a chart hit from the last 60 years ... A jazz standard, and operatic tune, a piece of film music... Even traditional music.
The important thing is that your musical suggestion must be accompanied by a letter, detailing why the piece of music is so special to you.
At the moment, our producer Olan McGowan is busy working with the orchestra, looking for some top class talent to perform whatever selections you send into us.
So, get your thinking caps on, and e-mail [email protected], or you can post a letter to Mooney, RTÉ Radio 1, Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
The cut-off date for entries is September 30th 2013. And the concert takes place on December 16th next.
And remember, if your entry is selected, you will get two free tickets to the concert! So there’s an incentive!
