David Hanrahan is back for his third appearance. David is a former Boston trial attorney and now the author of three novels. He just released his latest novel, Sanctuary: A Catalyst for Murder. David talks about his new book, a book club in Florida he visited, when he was on the NYC television show “So You Want to be a Star,” and a few near-death experiences.
1st song: “Tired” and 2nd song: “You’re in Heaven When You’re in Love.” Both songs sung by David Hanrahan and written by fellow students at Brooklyn Technical High School, William Goldenberg and Robert Hanning.
3rd song: “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord,” sung by “The Choirmen” at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church in Abington, MA performed for a special celebration of Cardinal Cushing’s 75th birthday (David is the soloist).

David Hanrahan, a seasoned Boston trial attorney, and author of Downsized with Extreme Prejudice, talks about his book and the incredible journey he has been on from his early life in Brooklyn, NY to his time in Panama as a lieutenant in the army where he built a school that was named after him. David sings for us live on air and shares music that shaped his life.
Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of his life: 1st song: Peter J. Wilhousky’s choral arrangement of the “Battle Hymn of The Republic”; 2nd song: “Drinking Song” from Verdi’s La Traviata; 3rd song: the Italian street song, “Wey Marie” by Dean Martin and then David’s version of the same song.
