RTE’s The John Murray Show, like its predecessor The Tubridy Show, has been a fantastic champion of books and reading, regularly featuring author interviews and critical discussions of new books in its massively popular morning show. The JMS team generally select their own Listeners Choice shortlist from titles which have featured on the show but they are willing to consider submissions from publishers. JMS titles need not necessarily be written by an Irish writer but they must be cracking good reads whatever the genre.
