I dont think Murray will last long with this show, I'm reduced to tuning to Tubs who is a pain in the a*** on the radio.
He is so full of himself its unreal. Oh I forgot the telephone no., its my first day pass the sick bag.

Thank goodness PK is on after the 10 news.

I think it's significant that nobody has commented on The Show Murray Show thread since Dec 1st 2010, until yesterday... I just cant get in to his style, and both the ads and the theme music are constant irritants...

Its all a bit...meh, really. It flys just below the radar so that noone talks about it or has opinions on it.

Its averagely grand like.

Wouldnt go that far as I'm so non-plussed about it. I reserve the term shyte for Tubridy's show.

It never even occurs to me to tune in. More the pity is that I never think to tune into G. Lee doing the Business show on Saturday.
Congratulations RTE you created to black holes with just a spot of bad programming. They should be working on the Large Hadro Collider in Cern.

I don't dislike John Murray and listened in initially but have no inclination to listen now, even at the start just to hear what's coming up on the show.

It's just.........there. It doesn't really register as something to listen to.

Actually, when thinking about it, I would be listening to his show if the Newstalk Breakfast show hadn't been extended by an hour.

His show seems to lie somewhere between current affairs and soft puffball pieces and that doesnt sit well with me.

But lets get this straight, he is far superior to Tubridy or D'Arcy. Tubridy's an idiot and the Ray D'Arcy Show is a show for idiots.

Will Ray go through with his threat to leave the country when Enda is Taoiseach in 7 weeks time?

Couldnt agree with you more. I detest Darcy and his stupid opinions. Please go now Ray, you wont be missed and bring that Jennie with you.

I heard his interview with Brendan Balfe this morning.

Balfe admitted that he was devastated at having to retire at 65 and that he's very disappointed at RTE saying to him that there was no where for him in their schedule, to come back in as a contractor. He was with RTE from 18 years of age, contractor then employee in his latter years.

He's obviously bitter about it....although he wouldn't use that word when pressed.....and who can blame him, when you look at some of the dreadful broadcasters that RTE radio have in their ranks.

I'm surprised that no other station has offered him something, he's a real pro. Perhaps 4FM, although they think that Gareth O'Callagh'sham is worth employing.

It must add to his frustration when he sees some of the vegetables working on radio today.

For some reason I had John Murray on too this morning (wtf?! ) and also heard this interview. It was excellent.

I could listen to Brendan's velvet tones all day long...best voice on the radio bar none.


Its disgusting how someone of his talent (Brendan made some truly excellent programmes utilising the RTE archives, apparently he knows them inside out) is forced to retire while the career of Ryan Tubridy, with his limited ability and appeal, continues to flourish for no good reason out in Montrose.

It seems to me that Brendan Balfe has been a spare part for a long time in RTE. He only ever seemed to get rolled out on bank holidays or to fill in for presenters who were on holidays. If I was him, I'd have been pretty peed off with RTE for the past couple of decades.
