'A new policy for High Noon. We will start the show with the National Anthem!'

George loves the national anthem, and discussed the plans for a public consultation on what to do with it with Senator Mark Daly.

High Noon began today with a playing of Amhran na BhFiann, as George set down a marker, saying that the show would now start with a playing of the anthem each day.

He even stood in respect for 'The Soldiers' Song'.

Why?

Well, it was in response to the news that the public will be asked for submissions on how the national anthem should be treated in the future.  It's after the copyright ran out in 2012.

Senator Mark Daly, who will be chairing the process, joined George on the show, to discuss what would be happening.

A couple of High Noon listeners even got involved in the conversation.
