    That’s how the BBC killed off John Peel, they couldn’t sack him so they changed his broadcasting hours around, getting him up early in the am etc and eventually he had a heart attack…

    I wonder will he still be on telly money?

    Harder job on morning Ireland I’d say. Reading the news is like falling off a log, but interviews are tougher….and so early!

    Give him a try out first. He should stand in for Ronan Collins while he’s ill. Wonder what Dobs playlists are like.

    “special state events including the forthcoming Budget 2018”
    Is Budget 2018 a state event? Like will there be a wreath laying in Glasnevin for it and all?
