Some great radio so it was- ja remember the slot where he'd call out requests for assistance from people who we're looking for a washing machine, or a 2nd hand b&w TV or a for people to donate money for a good cause- think it was called the GB fund
Interesting list of RTÉ recordings here. I don't see Harbour Hotel on it anywhere.
My google searches led me to that too.
Right , As it's Christmas soon, I'll give 10 euro to charity-Focus Ireland- if anyone posts a link to Harbour Hotel theme tune- anyone feel like doing the same- we could raise a few bob and get a bit of publicity going- maybe RTE will release the tune onto their website when we reach a certain amount or by a certain date- Ronan Collins, are ya listening?
Yeah but you had to keep your head otherwise you get dropped in at lunchtime.
I'd second that
Harbour Hotel ran from about 1978 to 1990. If you had an old RTE Guide from those years then you might get a clue as to who the theme composer is.
yea, I emailed ronan collins on friday about it but he ignored the request
He may have intentionally ignored in case RTÉ bring Harbour Hotel back and dump Ronan
I've emailed RTÉ archives so lets see if they can help.
He just played it a few mins ago so he didn't ignore your request, It's by someone called Trevor Duncan (?) but I didn't get the name of the tune.
haha did u record it? I missed it
Im not trevor duncan btw.
I'd imagine the show will be on the website on the listen back feature?
will keep an ear/eye out
It's called Harvest Supper by Trevor Duncan.
He mentioned it about 12.30, so roughly halfway through if you want to listen back on the RTE Player.
He played about a 30 second snippet.
Harbour Hotel brings me right back - coming home for school for lunch, ham sangers on the table and a nice mug of tea. Ah them were the days.
I won't be able to get it out of my head now!!
It's on iTunes also, what a blast from the past. Thanks!!
