    Anybody else think there is massive void in Irish radio since the untimely departure of Marian Finucane (RIP)?

    Treating this as a serious question.

    I'm not sure that it's all down to the absence of MF. The quality of some of the new / up and coming presenters is atricious. I am now unable to listen to what was my go-to listen on the way home - DriveTime. Those two are terrible, especially the bloke. Sounds like they stole two 'DJs' from 98 FM and tried to make them sound serious.

    Brendan O'Connor is growing on me - he's a different style and personality, but it could have been a lot worse......

    Warming a bit to Brendan I love radio and have turned off the Sunday morning programs lately, It is mental health or misery pron a lot of the time. The big issue is social media had made everything very polished it's a sort of extreme reflexivity which means you don't get the characters anymore it all becomes a samey mashup.

    I would like more economists and a bit more politics maybe.
