On the Saturday Night Show, High Flying Birds frontman and former Oasis star Noel Gallagher will be in studio to chat to Brendan [O’Connor] and perform two songs from their new album Chasing Yesterday.
Presenter of The Voice of Ireland Kathryn Thomas will drop by to talk about the finale of Operation Transformation, her new business venture and how 2014 was her greatest but toughest year yet.

        no need. last time it was on i retreated to the stereo and lamped up the volume listening to napalm death. just to counter any stray BOC vibes that might be lurking about. like.

    I should’a known better than to open a free tomorrow night on a Friday.

    If anyone has the stomach for it
    Could we start a roll of these ChitShows

    Like. So far. 2 of the 3 there are on the RTE payroll anyway

    1. Soundings

      And Joe Brolly is beginning his new column in this Sunday in the Sunday Independent, where Brendan O’Connor and his wife are already employed. What’s that free advertising worth?

        Definately get expenses. Flights, cars, accommodation, wined and dined etc.
        And maybe free wardrobe hair and make up.

        Dunno about an appearance fee. If there is tis a fifty quid job.

        1. Joe the Lion

          Ok cheers. What about talking heads in radio say the “experts” who call in to George Hook’s show?

      2. Soundings

        “The Saturday Night Show went out 31 times in 2011 and cost RTE €113,117 or €3651 per episode in appearance fees. Guests ran up a further €80,182 in travel expenses”
        Sunday Times report in 2012 based on freedom of information requests to RTE

        I would guess the appearance fee depends on how much the guest wants to promote their book, record, film, cause or career, but knowing the incestuousness at RTE, you couldn’t discount sweet deals.

        1. Joe the Lion

          Thank you Soundings. This is literally insane. Can someone please politely ask all protesters Who previously expressed well founded concerns with midget parasitism to direct their ire to D4?

        2. Frilly Keane



          Kathryn Thomas could be getting more in appearance money than the man who wrote Wonderwall.

          (Since she can’t get away with padded travel expenses. Like.)

          Jaysus. Where did I go wrong.

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      It’s the rotating guests game, Joe. I’m pretty sure Thomas hasn’t been too long out of the interviewee’s seat either.

      1. Frilly Keane

        Balls maybe

        Naw. He’s been cribbing non stop about the fixtures
        So I’d say tia that

        He’s announcing his political dodah
        ‘Running with the Shinners in the next GE

    1. Mani

      To be fair you were in her house.*

      *Second time I’ve rolled out the ‘TBF’ today. I’m not ashamed.
