    Please tell me that I am not the only one who keeps hearing mouth noise from RTE's Morning Ireland?

    Sweet baby Flying Spaghetti Monster, it sounds like they have swallowed the mic at times.

    is that not dry mouth noise? i.e. i thought it was fixed by taking a sip of water.

    i have on more than a few occasions over the years had to change station because of it anyway. not just during morning ireland.

    There is definitely one of the female presenters who is awful due to the "dry mouth" noise...

    I can't remember her name but it makes me switch over..

    At least I'm not the only one who noticed!!🙂

    Haha, yes! Constantly on RTE, but never elsewhere for some reason! I can't understand why only on RTE! Does my head in too.

    One of the more tech savvy posters here suggested that RTE Radio 1 are using condenser microphones; condensers can be unforgiving when it comes to background noise, acoustics, and unwanted mouth sounds.

    D'Arcy and Des Cahill are the worst offenders for this.
