Floody, or whatever he calls himself on Today FM at weekends, with his constant line:

"Floody on Today FM with more music, less talk".......

Ya, that's cos you've got nothing to say.........

He's be nothing without them.

He annoyingly says 'Ummmm' a lot during interviews. I stopped listening.

The best are the Off The Ball lads. They listen to the interviewee without saying anything. Listen and learn everyone else.


Also doesn't Sean O'Rourke on RTE radio 1 news at one sound like a cranky headmaster? Go fcuk yourself

This. When Geider does the business reports, I'm half convinced every statistic deliberately involves lots of th's just so he can say things like "tirty tree and a tird percent" to p1ss me off early in the morning.

FAO Denis O'Brien - use some of your billions to get your presenters some feckin elocution lessons.

I'm getting tired of Ronan Collins' ham-fisted segues between songs, trying to shoehorn something he heard on the news or weather (or the Duffster's preview) into the theme of the next song he's about to play. I'd prefer it if he just said "and now here's some more middle of the road dreck for you to drool mindlessly to" before each song. I don't listen that much, I just hear him after PK and before the News at one, same old same old.

Marty F&cking Whelan! Just about every bit of nonsense that dribbles out of this guy is irritating. Except for just one sweet word... "Goodbye".

Pat Courtennnaaaaaaaay on Nova, with his annoying falsetto voice and his compulsion to throw in stupid Nova catchphrases. I hear the twat when I switch over from the Morning Ireland lovefest with the sports crew.

He seems to think he's Terry Wogan the way he talks, but that chap will never be, he is also very uneasy when he is talking or comes across that way, how he is still around is beyond me

Trying to really push their Electric Picnic competition, several TodayFM presenters have all said that "the weather is meant to be cracking for that weekend too".

They have been saying this for a week now.

So suddenly we know that the 1st week in Sept is going to be good, but forecasters can't get the weather forecast correct usually outside of a week or 10 days.

But DJs obviously are better qualified than those at Met Eireann.

Probably mentioned already.....

Sean 'umm' Moncreiff


Also that business editor on the RTE news at One - David Murphy. I have to turn off whenever he comes on. It's his accent. He sounds like the posh child from your class when you were young

Finally when Matt Cooper gets anal about phrases/words/anagrams he never heard of, and insists on the interviewee to explain the term

The legendary 'countdown to the weekend' that DJs do.

Usually we are bombarded with this on a Friday from early morning, but iRadio took it a step further today, with mid Thur a DJ telling us how much he was looking forward to the weekend, and how it was only 27hrs away!!
