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.
