WTF!!!? How is this crap on the Radio in this day and age?
I've been listening to iRadio now for the last 2 weeks, not bad, iGoHome being by far the weakest link though. Is Fergal Darcy forced to play this utter utter Utter gnome shite or is it by choice??
Also, he has no decent games, doesn't really involve the listeners in any kind of meaningful way, puts on stupid voices, thinks he's some sort of nostalgia...whatever, whatever comes up, he's done it or he's had it, I think he's talked about italia 90 at least twice in the last few weeks, he never stops talking about ally..which wouldn't be so bad if she said abit more but you rarely hear her.
What else...I can't think...I'll add more tomorrow as I'll be forced to listen to him for another 5 days (Don't ask), I die abit inside come 3pm.
Edit:If he does play that Gnome shite by choice it makes him the worst DJ in the World.
I completely agree. I can't stand that little fecking thing. Nothing worse than being out for a jog when it comes on. Annoying shrieking voice. Not a fan of his show at all. Back to Spin 1038 when it's on.
iRadio got **** when it changed to an all Ireland station.
It was class when it was only the west and north west and called i102-104.
I'm inclined to agree with your some of your comments op.
However I've met Fergal Darcy a few times and he's a decent guy. It can't be easy producing a show 5 days a week and keeping it fresh and interesting.
I do think that since the show has been networked that it's trying to be everything to everyone. It has cult following in the west. Fergal does need a decent co-host to bounce off.
I do think it's lost it's serious edge, it's used to be very topical with issues of the day etc and real issues that mattered with people. I remember listening one day and hearing an email being read out and I was completely hooked by the contents of it. The discussion after was great radio.
Yeah the Gnome is pretty annoying, I really don't think it's played by choice!
And no I don't work for iradio!
