LAST NIGHT’S RAY D’Arcy Show featured some well known guests like singer Sean Keane, Liveline’s very own Joe Duffy and that guy from Embarrassing Bodies.

But it was an Irish ukulele band that stole the show with a couple of joyful performances of classic tunes.

The Dublin Ukulele Collective closed the show with Bad Moon Rising

Earlier in the show, they had played A Little Respect and the crowd were loving it


The audience watching gave the ukuleles two big thumbs up

And the fact that they belted out the word “shit” in the song only endeared them further
