    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

    John's next guest had emailed the programme looking for some advice. Jean Hartnett, in her thirties, feels she has hit a brick wall in recent times. Jean, from Sligo, sings, plays guitar & writes her own music. Jean's gigs have recently dried up, along with her confidence. Jean wishes to ask our listeners whether to give up music or not.

    Near Death Visions, author Colm Keane

    The question whether someone can experience a deathbed vision is a divisive one, dismissed as hallucinations or wishful thinking. John's next guest is Colm Keane, who has spent the last few years dwelling on this contentious subject. His new book 'We'll Meet Again - Irish Deathbed visions' is due out at the end of this week.
