Is the 6 year winter finally over? Let's celebrate!

Dare we dream? We've been burned before but maybe, just maybe, we will be burned in the right way as the weather wizards are predicting that Ireland is set to sizzle in 18 degrees of pure sunshine this week.

With this in mind Dec asked listeners to suggest their Welcome Summer Songs and they came in with some scorchers...


'Gala FREE FROM DESIRE for Garret in sunny BarBRAYdos '


'Dec/ed, it was august 2004, me and the wife were on honeymoon in Miami and every hour Fat Joe 'Lean Back' was on the radio in the car! Still love that song cause of the memories it brings back, Fergal'
