Anton Savage, even a Santa hat can't shift that suit!

Anton Sav­age, even a Santa hat can’t shift that suit!

I had the great plea­sure of being invited to join Anton Sav­age for his review of the year ‘Sav­age Sun­day’ spe­cial on Today FM.

Broad­cast on Sun­day Decem­ber 21 I was on in the first half, join­ing a panel made up of two peo­ple whom I have always admired and who are far more intel­li­gent than I: Susan Daly of The Jour­nal and for­mer Gov­ern­ment advi­sor turned PR supremo and jour­nal­ist Ger­ard Howlin.


The top­ics dis­cussed were as wide, wild and var­ied as you can imag­ine given it was the year of the Water Charges, U2 invad­ing your iPhone, Garth Brooks not play­ing Cro­ker, Roy Keane, Local & Euro­pean Elec­tions, Benjy the gay Bull and, er, les­bian pen­guins and much, much more.

Anton was most kind to give my book, ‘Medium Sized Town, Fairly Big Story’ a decent plug through­out and I got to go through some of the year’s best local news­pa­per sto­ries as well. With Ray Darcy leav­ing Today FM for the comfy con­fines of RTE Radio 1 there’s a lot of spec­u­la­tion as to who’ll get his cov­eted 9am slot. My money is on Anton, he’s one of the best pre­sen­ters around and what a treat it was to be on his Sun­day show.

Have a lis­ten back to the show here.
