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.
