Why do they call it House-Hunting?

I mean, it's not like it's going anywhere...

SunMay29 Revenge of the Tit

Wahey Bosco! It's good to be back on the green isle.

Had a good week of quiet reflection in Lanzarote... Yeah, right! There was a Karaoke Bar in our apartment complex that served cheap booze. I'll say no more other than I really should know the way to Amarillo at this stage. Had a BBQ planned for last night but windy weather killed that idea, so we went on the beer for JP's birthday (26 now) with
Davey, Stevie, Shaz and the woman we're backing for the Rose of Dublin competiton. More on that to come.

Derek's on the show for one more night and then me&JP hit the air again for more of the fun and laughter you've come to endure. Just when you thought it was safe to turn on the wireless...

One week off and a stack of music's been waiting for me. What, do these artists all wait for me to get on the plane and then rush into the studio? Here's what I've got, if you have any opinions on what you'd like, then do email as always. We'll sort out the list tomorrow.

The Choonz:

  • 2 Pac ft Elton John – Ghetto Gospel
  • 213 – Groupie Luv
  • Armand Van Helden – Into Your Eyes
  • Backstreet Boys – Incomplete
  • Basement Jaxx – U Don’t Know Me
  • Bon Garcon – Freek U
  • Brooke Valentine – Girl Fight
  • Chantal Chamandy – You’ll Want Me
  • Charlotte Church – Crazy Chick
  • Chesney Hawkes – Another Fine Mess
  • Fat Joe ft Nelly – Get it Poppin’
  • Fatboy Slim – Don’t Let the Man Get…
  • Feeder – Pushing the Senses
  • Fightstar – Paint Your Target
  • Foo Fighters – Best of You
  • Inaya Day – Nasty Girl
  • James Blunt – You’re Beautiful
  • Mario – Here I Go Again
  • Nizlopi – JCB Song
  • Papa Roach – Scars
  • Rooster – Deep and Meaningless
  • Rosin Murphy – If We’re in Love
  • Shakira – La Tortura
We'll be giving the show a bit of a facelift from this week. No, nothing too drastic, just a couple new bits'n'pieces. After much contractual discussion with the real presenting talent on the show, we're also proud to announce that Tricky will be staying on. Thank God.

If you're doing exams over the next few weeks, our show will be the one to listen to - because we're the one show who WON'T BE TALKING ABOUT THEM. It should make a nice change from the exams advice and study tip bulls**t you'll get everywhere else. Let's face it, if you're listening to the radio for inspiration you must really be screwed, so relax and repeat next year.

It's good to be back - talk tomorrow night from 10.

ThuMay20 What a Shtinka!

What a stinker, indeed. Let' s just say the radio awards people weren't banging down the studio doors tonight.

Due to a technical fault (ie I'm a dumbass) Tricky was unable to appear on the air tonight, and his question tonight was crap. I'm quite emotional too: The Big Game is no more. Not a good show overall, but hey, didn't Shakespeare have a bad sonnet from time to time? Didn't Christ himself have questionable judgement in best mates? Wasn't Jean Luc Picard a better Star Trek Captain than Kirk?

Anyway, I don't give a
crap, I'm off on holidays. So long, suckaz!



Shite?

I hate to do this (not) but I TOLD YOU SO!

Email: Ray do you not think Donna looked like the character 'Audrey Griswold' from 'National Lampoon's European Vacation' last night? Stephen, Dublin

Is this Dana Hill as a young girl, who plays Audrey Griswold in National Lampoon's European Vacation?



Or is it Donna McCaul? She looks more like her in older photos, but I can't find any big enough. After a bit of research I've learned she's actually dead. 15 July 1996 - Burbank, California, USA. stroke after diabetes.

Blast! Extra!

  • Old boss Liam on the blower saying I never call him anymore. But I never called him before...
  • My Ma on the blower saying she's locked out of my house. She's staying tonight. This is while I'm on the radio and can do absolutely nothing about it.
  • Reassurances from JP that going on holidays with yer Ma at 24 is not sad.
  • My Ma on the blower asking how to use the digital telly remote in our house.
  • Radio nemesis Nikki Hayes texting us again. Said she got an email sent to her organisation's secret underground lair for the attention of Tricky Dick. Duh! Send them to this address.
  • My Ma on the blower asking how to use the DVD player in our house.
  • New boss Tom, and how much we love him - especially while we're talking about contracts. Ooh, and that shirt looks so good on you. Have you been working out?

Au resevoir

WedMay18 Lanza-Rotty

Sorry for not updating. Let's make a deal: I'll skip one day a week. That's not much of a deal, I know, just an excuse to doss for me, but hey - that's all that's on the table.

I'm pissing off on holidays!!!!!

That was our theme tonight - and a bloody good theme too. Although I was somewhat taken aback by the number of people who texted in to say I'm a jammy get who doesn't deserve a holiday because I have a cushy little number in Today FM. That hurts. The amount of work that goes on behind the scenes here in the office is stupendous - what you hear on the air is only the tip of the iceberg, folks! Seriously! Stop that laughing you at the back!

Severe Floody Warning: Derek (the leg-end) will be doing the filling-in duties from Sunday night and I'll be back Monday night the 30th. You could at least pretend you care.

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE!
  1. Lynsday Lohan is doing some music for Mission: Impossible 3. And Ricky Gervais'll be in it too. Did you ever see him in Alias?
  2. Kelly Osbourne says Britney and Kevo Spears will split up. Well, duh! That's obvious - like saying Kelly needs to go on a diet.
  3. Celebrity Love Island is crap.

Blast! Extra!

  • I'm addicted to crisps. Dorito Chilli Heatwaves. 2 packs a day for a week now. Sex in a crinkly bag.
  • Getting rid of The Big Game. And the return of an old friend after my holidays.
  • How people have gone right off Tricky Dick - probably because he's nasty.
  • I must find my passport. Lanza - rotty here I come!

Peas out.

MonMay16 Lucky There's a Me

We got up early to go and see the film, so spirits were low at the start of the show after a long day out of the bed. But we soldiered on - you needed us to.

Opened the show with:

It seems today... that all you see... is violence in movies and sex on TV... but where are those good old-fashioned values... On which we used to rely? Lucky there's a family guy... lucky there's a man who... positively can do... all the things that make us laugh and cry…
HE'S! A! FAMILY! GUYYYYYYYY!

Got loads of requests to play it again, which we did.

The echo voice got a lot of use tonight. People texting in for weird phrases to be read out in the echo-y style. My favourite was (in Darth Vader voice):
“Luke (breath) what do you want for your dinner (breath)“.

My mate Edwin from Galway was sending me on texts from a girl who I met once when I visited Galway. He said she has a nice arse, but I can’t remember her. She said she doesn’t like Akon - Lonely. Reminds me of the old Irish saying: a nice arse can get you a lot of things but not your own radio show.

Rival radio DJ Nikki Hayes from across the way texted us again. She said we "sounded fab as always". Keep taking them pills, Hayes.

Is our ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE! music from Donna & Joe's Eurovision entry? Yes it is!

Kanye West - Diamonds was most requested tune. Please don’t get too used to it, because it’s awfully bloody early to be playing it – it’s not out til July or something. Although we do want you to remember we were playing it first… Big Game winner was Derek in Westport.

Blast! Extra What we talked about off the air.

  • Tomorrow night’s gossip. Can’t tell but it’s not that juicy.
  • Nice arse girl in Galway – I have no memory of her whatsoever. JP, stop shaking me – I can’t describe for you what I do not remember!
  • How Phil Cawley is sound.

Review: SWEIII: ROTS

This is not the review you’re looking for:

Stop reading now if you're a SW lover who wants to wait til they see it themselves. There won't be whole spoliers in this, but there will be hints. Still reading? Good - anyway, we all know what happens in this one.

If you don’t, quick recap: Since SWII The Clone Wars rage between the Republic (protected by the Jedi and run by the dodgy Chancellor Palpatine) and the Separatists (Japanese lizard dudes – don’t know why they’re from Japan) who are being organized by Count Dooku and his robot sidekick, General Grievous. Dooku’s getting his orders from some evil dude in a cape called Darth Sidious – we don’t know who he is, but no prizes for guessing.

Jedi’s can’t get married but Anakin (nickname Annie – no wonder he’s got issues) Skywalker and Padme (formerly Queen) Amidala secretly are, and she’s got a bun in the oven. But he’s been having these bad dreams that she’s going to die in childbirth – the same dreams he had shortly before his mam popped her clogs.

He must find a way to stop her from dying… cue Chancellor Palpatine, who lets him know that the dark side of the force can give the power to save people from death. What will Annie do?

The Good:
  • Natalie Portman - va va voom!
  • General Grievous - nasty robot with asthma. Rumour had it he was to be played by a kid, but he’s not. He’s all CGI.
  • Yoda tossing those floating senate boxes at Palpatine like they were digestives.
  • Yoda shrugging as two guards approach him and they fly back into the wall, knocked out. Cool!
  • Yoda lobbing the heads off two stormtroopers/clones.
  • Any other bits with Yoda.
  • Mace Windu kicking Palpatine’s ass.
  • Palpatine kicking Mace Windu’s ass back.
  • Grievous – when he finally starts fighting.
  • Loads of fighting.
  • Order 66 – the end of the Jedi. Won’t give too much away, but it’s the best bit of the film. A genuine “oh, fuck” moment.

The Bad:

  • The Phantom Menace and some of Attack of the Clones. I had to watch this crap first.
  • Jar Jar Binks appears. But doesn’t speak, thank God.
  • Greasy hair. Anakin could’ve done with a wash’n’blowdry. Is he going bald by the way?
  • Spots. Loads of spots. Even Natalie Portman had a few.
  • Too many soppy love bits. I love you more. No, I love you more.
  • God-awful script in places. Just filling time til the next action scene.
  • Hayden Christensen’s bad acting. although we’ve seen him in indie hit, Shattered Glass and he does act well in that, so dunno what happened here. Come to think of it, Nat Portman wasn’t too good at the acting lark and even Ewan was dodgy: maybe it was all the blue-screen stuff McGregor was bitching about during production. Good actors, bad direction? After all, Lucas has gone and computer-generated the whole thing, but didn’t have that luxury when he made his orginals, which were class. Did he forget he needs proper actors too?
  • The Darth Vader suit is only in the film for like, a minute. And when it is, it looks like an old Frankenstein b-movie scene.
  • The way Lucas just adds in characters and creatures so he can sell more toys – like the bird/lizard/horse thing Obi-Wan rides to fight General Grievous. Pointless.
  • How does R2D2 do it? He’s a pretty crap robot, and the robots he’s up against in this one are cool as. Take the ninja-like dudes who guard chicken-shit Grievous. But this little roller-bot still gets loads of action. Daft. What’s really funny is that they have all these amazing robots and technology in this episode and we’re supposed to believe that this is before A New Hope, where all the technology is crap.

Overall:

I was expecting to write a really bad review, but was pleasantly surprised. Bearing in mind this is a kids movie, which is something many fans fail to do, the thing is really far more watchable than the first pair, and the last hour does a great job of showing us all of the gory details of how Annie meets Darth. I'll never call George Lucas world's best director and he's certainly lost whatever he had, but still manages to recreate a bit of that old magic for one last (please, God) outing.

SunMay15 Sundays Suck

Not a great show. I'm always in a weird mood on Sundays - I really should just give up beer, but working all week on nights means we can't go boozing (though it might actully improve our show) so hangovers are inevitable on Sunday evening. Tonight, no ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE! because:
  1. nothing happened in the world of entertainment over the weekend or
  2. we were too lazy to do any research tonight.
Got a load of nice people texting in again to say "love the show" - but that was only because I asked people to. I need a fog-free shower mirror. Where can I get one? Do you have one? Where did you get it? Cementing my position as a fulltime nerd, I've discovered and fallen in love with bittorrent. Only for legal downloads, of course. Thanks to Jon from my class in college who's helping me get the bugger to work. The Shizzolator is a nifty Snoop Dogg website that managed to fill about half of the show for us. Sweet!

These two look alike, right?

Rock'n'Roll Legend Bryan Adams
New Yoik Comedian Denis Leary of Rescue Me
JP doesn't see it.

Dervla Brogan in Ballina - my beautiful home town - won the big game. Christ, she was mental.

Most requested song: Shit Bananas by Gwen Steffani

Blast! Extra: off air meanderings
  • We're going to STAR WARS EPISODE £ tomorrow morning. That £ sign is no error.
  • How much we love our boss. At least until he fires our asses anyway.
  • My sniffles.

What? I did tell you it wasn't a great show!

TuesMay10 - People text to say the show is good?

Shock, horror - it's only taken a year, but we got a few texts to say the show was good. We get loads of texts from people all the time saying "love the show" so we'll play their songs, but these had no ultererior motive. Unless people had free extra credit to use up before midnight. That must've been it.

Entertainment Update! It's a newish unoriginal feature!

Renee Zelwegger (is that how you spell it?) is now married to this chump:


His name's Kenny Chesney. He sings country music. Didn't take her long to become Mrs Chesney after splitting from Damo Rice. But her name would've been Renne Rice if she stayed with him...

Look out, Grissom's got a kid, and he's not afraid to use it!

In CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Gil's co-workers are so dumb, they have to ask him everything. Watch it and see. How do they take a piss without him there to explain everything?
GI - no, not Joe, but Glycemic Index. It's the new rage with girlfriends everywhere including mine. I thought it was the gay magazine. Speaking of which, we want a straight magazine called Straight Ireland. We're protesting for straight rights. We demand equality, dammit!
Celebrity Wrestling's been axed. Let's all take a moment. Done.
Blast! Extra:
  • The interim listenership figures came out. And we've still got a job... what's going on?
  • I like pens and JP thinks of them as just... well... pens. He leans too hard on one of my ones and so must use a ballpoint in future. No, I'm not sad, right?
  • Playstation portable. It's not out til SEPTEMBER?????? Piss! They originally said it'd be out in March. What's the story?

That will be all

MonMay09 Quick Update

Monday's show was so good, oh it was good... so good! What did we talk about?

Oh yeah - George Clooney likes to put water ballons on top of doors, so they fall down and soak the tight-fitting top of his ride of a girlfriend, Lisa Snowdon. Remember her, from MTV with yer man, Dannan Breathnach from Ireland? He did well, didn't he - she's shagging George freakin' Clooney and he's doing some science show for kids on RTE. No wonder he's pouting like a bitch:


Is he still even doing that show?

Donna and Joe!

Need I say more?

Most requested song was Ciara - 1,2 Step.

Blast! Extra: The great things we talk about off the air
  • Star-shaped jellies. A crafty Today FM marketing ploy of little bags of sweeties to hand out to piggish listeners so they'll listen to the station. The idea is falling on it's head as the piggish DJ's of the station stuff their fat faces. Us included.
  • Pressing the wrong buttons. I had to go for a waz and all JP had to do was press one button. Yeah, he screwed up.
  • The coke machine in the station (no, not cocaine, Coca-Cola!) is out of Coke.

Ciao!

SunMay08 The Blast! Girl Arrives

I didn't do an update on Thursday's show because... because... because...

Subject change! Ever listen to a radio show and hear the DJ refer to a girl who works in the background somewhere, but we never get to hear her voice? Ever wonder what she does? Well, so did we and we've decided to create a fake girl we can mention while we're on the air. But you'll never hear her speak. It means that when we screw up, she'll get the blame. Tonight, Vanessa arrived as our broadcast assistant to print texts, answer phones, make the tea, and somewhat even up the gender imbalance. Uh oh - Vanessa's first screw-up! Take a long hard look at the future of the charts:



He was the most requested song tonight, with Axel F, and we had to play the song because our dippy BA messed up. Tricky Dick was off tonight on a dirty weekend with the Easter bunny. Speaking of dirty bunnies, remember the Cadbury's Caramel Bunny? Foxy minx.
As a massive fan of Family Guy, I was delighted to get a text tonight from Brian Griffin! The dog?
I think the texter was from Galway, but that's right next to Quahog Rhode Island, right? Look it up. Big game winner tonight was Michael McCarthy from Tralee. Also in the show: how we're going to get a radio award. By firing JP. The Backstreet Boys have dropped the "Boys". We think.
The Blast! Extra: off-the-air chit-chat
  • I got a telling off for not updating Thursday's show online.
  • I'm going on holidays - with my Mam. Is that sad? Yeah.
  • Remember Glorious? the song by Andreas Johnson? It was played for ages on the radio and it was shit. And you never hear it on the radio anymore!

Don't kill other people if you can help it.

WedMay04 Piss Sticks

Went for a pint across the road after the show, to meet up with the stragglers from the Today FM table quiz - which started at half seven, ergo, vis-a-vis, concordantly, the update is late. Me and JP were sober arriving (we don't drink during the show, believe it or not) and we were even more sober leaving.

Some waffle-box from Galway was on the show plugging her own show on student radio station, Flirt FM. Maria was her name. Chatty type, but very nice. Colin Farrell begged this woman for sex? No messin' - he hasn't denied it. She was on Loose Women saying he begged for nearly 3 hours and she was tempted, "but didn't go there". Oprah's dog is having mental trouble. Not to worry, this guy will save the day. Dog whisperer? I've whispered to a couple of dogs in my time, but it was me who needed counselling afterwards. We had a row about the Trick Daddy song, Sugar. I like it, the bitch doesn't. So I played it. Hey, it's my show. Our winner was Brian Phillips in Wexford. Most requested song was The Game ft 50 Cent - Hate it or Love it. We played the new Kanye West tune - Diamonds. Excellent.

Top texts - forgot to copy them, so none tonight. Sorry. Most of them were crap anyway, you wouldn't like them.

Blast Extra! The hilarious capers of your third-favourite DJ's while the mics are off:
  • The show went to shit in the last 15 minutes, but hey, we had a good 105 minutes before that. Cheers!
  • Any craic? No, you? No.
Get back to work!

TuesMay03 - The Sith Clone Menaces Return to Strike Back

It's Jedi time again, folks! Those lovely people at TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILMS have invited us - yes, plain us - to the meeja screening of

STAR WARS: EPISODE III
REVENGE OF THE SITH

(Cue theme...) "DAAA da da da..."

SPA WARS

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, two ill-experienced and rarely-listened-to radio presenters worked on a show on a tremedously poplular Irish radio station. One of them was an incredibly attractive, well-turned out young man and a huge hit with the ladies... the other one was known as JP. Armed with only a text message machine and a CD player, they must battle with honour to win the war against the dreaded imperial warrior, Darcy Vader. They don't stand a chance.

What fantastic photo editing!

We were talking about the awful waste of airtime that is Joey. Scary Spice Mel B is going to star in it. Now THAT'S a good catch! JP had a nosebleed. Eva Longhoria says Hugh Grant is her ideal man. And you can buy your own AT-AT's from Star Wars. You know, the things that the baddies drive in, that look like big dogs. A steal at 45 grand. Rich nerds. Someone texted to call us rookies(see below). Continuing on the SW theme, we confused that with Wookies & Chewbacca. Idiots. Big Game winner was the lovely Katherine from Achill.

Top Texts!

  • I watch joey just to see drea de matteo al in cork.
  • Nothin wrong with gettin nose bleed had them for bout 7 years from age 10 until got a stick put up me nose and got it fixed.Freezed it a think great job.
  • I'm disgusted wit ur language on the radio, why dont ye rookies use ur studio time wisely an talk less about gyms an pickin ur noses an try impressin ur listeners. Must be a fatty.

Blast! Extra!

  • JP's nose.
  • JP's temper. He pushed the wrong button on the Coke machine and got Fanta Lemon instead of Lilt. The mood was less than totally tropical.
  • The gym is not going to happen tomorrow, but we will get there this week.

Later

MonMay02 Three Freakin' Hours!

The bank holiday schedule had me on from 9 to midnight tonight: an addition of one hour. Personally, I find the show gets a little bit tired after the first 15 minutes ordinarily, so imagine my delight at looking at the clock and seeing another 2 hours and 45 minutes to go! Crap. Phil Cawley does a 3 hour slot - before Fenton arrived, he used to do 4! 4 hours! And he's always in good form! The man is a radio God whose endurance shall be rewarded with nubile lasses and an abundance of riches in the next life.

We brought The Oldie But A Goodie Guessing Game back in the first hour. TOBAGGG was a feature we had at 11.30 ages ago before the brilliance of the Big Game appeared in that slot. It used to be really good fun, so I don't know what happened tonight. The magic just wasn't there. The TOBAGGG song was Queen - Don't Stop Me Now and our winner was David Lafferty from Glenageary in Dublin.

Lindsay Lohan makes some cracking movies, right? Right? RIGHT?!?! Herbie: Fully Loaded features her getting it on with that guy from Jeepers Creepers whose voice JP hates. It must make a change for her to snog somebody her own age: the last fella she shifted was Bruce Willis. More movie news: Justin Timberlake is gonna be in Shrek 3! I met him. He plays X-Box and said I was funny. Funny looking was what he actually said, but I edit it for stories.

Big Game Winner was John Rooney from Killybegs. Most requested song was Akon - Lonely. Tricky Dick is still looking for your questions. EMAIL HIM.

Top texts:
  • Plz plz plz say a big wel done 2 athlone community college,dey won d all ireland 2day against clonakilty 1-16 to 1 point, tanx a millon

  • Blind guy to the barman, "Wanna hear a blonde joke?" The guy next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, you should know something. The barman is blonde, the bouncer is blonde. I'm blonde. The guy sitting next to me is a rugby player. The fella to your right is a wrestler. And each one of us is blonde. Now, do you still wanna tell that joke?" Blind guy "No, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."

Blast Extra!

  • We're going to start going to the gym again. JP says his swimming pool is too small.
  • We didn't realise Donal was on tonight. Looking out through the window, we both say "who's that dude walking into the studio?".
  • I was telling JP that I've been a moody Mary over the weekend. JP: You're always moody Ray: Piss off JP: See?

Back Tuesday @ 10pm for a 2 hour show!

Your loving DJ,

SunMay01 Hangovers and Snots

If you're an 18, 19 or 20 year-old reading this, then take note: enjoy these few pub years you've got. Soon you'll be in the mid-20's and a night on the beer will leave you reeling for the next two days. What happened? God knows. There was a time when we'd spend Wednesday, Thursday Friday and Saturday nights on the tear, then think about a few on a Sunday. We used to laugh at the thought of hangovers, these things Mams and Dads have if they have one sherry too many. Enjoy these years - you lucky shites. Therefore, the show was a little more quiet than usual: JP blamed my girlfriend for his state, I called my mate, Anna's mam in the middle of the night on Sunday morning, and she wasn't impressed. I was wondering where snot comes from. Is it just stored up there?

Yeah, very high brow.
