Broadcaster Joe Duffy will join Ryan on Friday night to chat about taking the pulse of the nation on Liveline.
The popular broadcaster will revisit some of the standout stories that had the entire country roaring at their radios, and viewers will find out what happened next.
The Late Late Show will also crown its very own Karaoke King or Queen this weekend as the show looks for its own entrant to battle for a chance to represent Ireland at the Karaoke World Championships.
Thirty years ago, The Late Late Show introduced the Irish to karaoke and we fell hook, line and singer! On Friday night, DJ Electric Eddie is launching a national search for Ireland’s best karaoke singer and The Late Late Show is going to find its very own contestant to compete for the honour to sing for Ireland.

As well as that – eight weeks ago, four hardy souls took on the annual Late Late Show Antiques challenge, and on Friday night they’ll be presenting the fruits of their labour to the nation.
Viewers will be finding out how successful they have been in taking their banjaxed furniture – a pram, a portable writing desk, a mobile sharpening machine and cinema seats – into desirable gems and how much value their efforts have added.
Paul Costelloe will also be on to chat about going from working as a door-to-door bible salesman to becoming one of Ireland’s most famous fashion designers, and he’ll chat about surviving the recession and crafting some of the world’s most famous dresses as personal designer for Princes Diana.
As Guns N’ Roses prepare to rock Slane again, The Late Late Show will be looking back at some of the huge gigs that defined a generation with Lord Henry Mountcharles. From The Rolling Stones and U2 to a gig that Bruce Springsteen will never forget, he’ll be giving viewers the inside track on staging some of the biggest concerts Ireland has ever seen.
Artist Rasher will also be in studio to chat about the inspiration behind his latest exhibition, and there will be performances from Lords of Strut, I Draw Slow and Callum Beattie.
