The Last Word

    Brianna Parkins hosts TLW and not a stir on the thread!

    I didnt exactly warm to her presenting style. What makes her qualified to present a current affairs radio show?

    Wasn't really familiar with her also the bit I caught was of no real interest to me so can't really judge her what else does she do ?

    Ah she's just flavour of the month for now. No harm to give her a go and see how she gets on. I'd still prefer to have Hugh Linehan from the Irish Times as a stand in. He did a good job before the Communicorp ban came in.

    Dee Reddy is painful. Much prefer when Claire Beck is on

    She is in the haypenny place compared to that tool John Cladell. The man who claims to have great musical taste yet it still the man behind the music played on Today FM which is beyond awful anytime I happen to listen during the day.

    On St Patrick's Day the last word will be 25 years old, I don't know if they are going to mark the occasion but they should as it's probably one of the longest running programs on national radio at this stage, it's a pretty good achievement considering that consultants strongly advised that it be axed for the January 98 relaunch of the radio station.

    Can anyone imagine Dunphy doing the [email protected] and [email protected] in his time?

    I see Matt got excited that the Cash Machine has rolled over to a new amount of over 30k.

    Not a great conspiracy theorist myself, but these missed calls that are driving the total higher, why do I think the number they could be phoning is one of their own, and they just want the figure to roll over to get more interest and people talking about it?

    Does Cooper bare no shame shilling the cash machine?

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,767 ✭✭✭ Tork

    He'll do what he's told, just like every other employee on the station. Even Dunphy might have. Have you never heard the ads he reads out on his podcast?

    Don't see what that would do. Anyone who has entered on Monday and Tuesday doesn't have to enter again.

    If you had mostly the same people playing every day, then the numbers entering would be proportionally lower every time it rolls over.

    Yeah it's gone very low brow.

    No surprise the Kardashians makes their news.

    Yes but part of this is because Biden is practically invisible as a president. It’s really bizarre, he’s almost in hiding.

    Because he's almost 80, in Ireland he'd be considered far to old to be the junior minister for forestry let alone the top job

    That reads very much as though Matt's interview was little more than a regurgitation of Roisin Ingle's piece in The Irish Times last Saturday.

    Some joke having Brunker on talking about Ukraine.

    She was saying she wishes Merkel could come back as she's an ally of Putin.....Matt correctly pointed out that's how we got into this problem by relying on Putin. Amanda had her tail between her legs then.

    She was also pretty disgusted that Eurovision only banned Russia today and not yesterday....bit weird.

    Why is Amanda Brunker on every other Friday to talk about the week trending? Like why her?

    I just don't get it, what's her link to Baur? It's only in th last few months that they seem to add her to the speed dial of panelists?

    If ever you want to see the decline of The Last Word, there you have it in a nutshell.
