Never heard anyone as bad on the radio.

You mean Dill Everyones-racist-against-me-because-Im-a-SriLankan-Lesbian?

I don't know her name, but the show is called Global Village. Jesus, it's dire.

Sean's surely morphed into Elmer Fudd - his delivery oft-punctuated by a series of staccato eh, em, uh, b.b..but's etc.

I used to enjoy Moncrieff and I know it's a minority view, but the show kinda grates when I catch it now.

It reminds me of a drawn out version of 'And finally...' on ITN News - too much fluff like alien abductees, hipster American authors and myriad other wacky but all too familiar items. It's mildly amusing on occasion but the way some people go on, you'd think Sean was a frickin' comedy God.

I was sent on a corporate ethnic sensitivity training course some years ago given by a certain woman ( i believe the afternoon( 2 - 5) course cost somewhere in the region of 10k - boom times )

I would be a fairly quiet person but could not bite my lip any more when she accused the class of being racist because they worked for a company who hired qualified candidates over unqualified

when I and some others questioned her on this she unleashed a list of similar issues she has(with Irish people I believe ) which she considers as racism including people who has an issue with welfare fraud

not sure if this is relevant to this thread but have waited since 2007 to tell this story as i don't know anyone who listens to any show on newstalk on saturday nights with whom i could share this

These "wacky stories" which have usually been on a minimum of BBC, theJournal.ie and Broadsheet.ie for at least three days before one of his "researchers" passes them to him to read on air.

Hate presenters discussing their families on air, as if we gave a sh*t. Tom Dunne is another offender.

And pronounces the number 'six' as 'sex'....*shudders*
+1

Tom Dunne mentions his missus EVERY show...

Blokes on the radio that mention their missus all the time are usually cheating and on cocaine.
Probably.

Ray D'arcy took it one step further and started playing happy families with his co-presenter. Needless to say, I don't listen to his show anymore.

No, Keith Duffy. As in the guy from Boyzone.

Every now and then, he pops up on 98fm for a couple of weeks. For sheer comedy value, he's worth a listen.

Haha never knew that! He always struck me as someone who spoke a lot of sense but this certainly lowers his credibility somewhat
