It's the most wonderful time of the year – NO ENCORE reviews the RTÉ Choice Music Prize~! Not a lot of ceremony this year for obvious reasons but a great story to celebrate in the form of Denise Chaila's victory. Dave Hanratty and Craig Fitzpatrick are joined by Nialler9 Podcast co-host Andrea Cleary to discuss the event.
There's also a controversy-themed Top 5 to run down, the return of Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, and Dave once again finding himself duking it out with Picture This. The more things change...

ACT TWO (29:15): The rest of the news from a busy week including Van Morrison's eyebrow-raising song titles, Taylor Swift's Netflix remorse, Soulja Boy's wrestling beef, Craig's summer lament, and the sad demise of bands.

ACT FOUR (1:01:19): From radio silence to televisual terror, we go through our shouts for Top 5 Banned Songs as Dave finds himself struck down by technological censorship along the way.
