Me music me like !

The music we play on the Red Rooster is pre selected for our shows, we have to play a particular commerical mix on air to appeal to as many as possible and it's rotated in a way so the big hits play across various shows and hours - yadda yadda wont bore you ....

On air If I was let play the kind of music I listen to at home or like to play in clubs then I would single handly shut Red Fm down in 3 days.

I don't usually buy music, im in a lucky position working in radio you tend to get sent alot of stuff , tho 95% of it is shite.

I insist on paying for quality tho! I bought everything by Ray Lamontange today, along with Mick Flannerys new album called" White lies "

Mick is from Blarney, we had him on the show a few weeks back, the dude is so shy and humble to talk to. We got tons of texts wondering if he was stoned out of his head ,such was his shyness and whispery manner.

He is easily the most talented solo artist to come out of Cork for 20 years.
His album is stunning.

Ray and Mick are very similar, Mick just sounds like he's hurting a bit more.

Check out Rays version of Crazy and buy Mick's album too :)

The end.

Hollywood dude Aiden Quinn is on with us tomorrow morning after 9am !

Milli Vanilli gets knocked out ...classic !

Nudists and their rival clothed tourists put aside their dressing differences to help a dolphin in distress at a Formentera beach.

Eyewitness Sebastian Lakwa (28) reported: "A nudist helped the animal first. He got two pots of water and dumped them over the crying animal." With the help of others on the beach, the dolphin made it safely back to the water.

The show of unity between clothed and naked beach-goers was a landmark after the nudist war on Usedom beach, where naked German sunbathers and conservative Poles clashed over the summer.

Located on the German-Polish border, the beach hit the headlines when Polish holiday-makers expressed their outrage about the nude Germans’ free-spirited display. Most recently, a ceasefire was called between the two sides.

So you got a shit job ya ???

You can click the link below see the full list.

"The PPI Radio Awards 2008 – a celebration of the art and skill of radio production and programming. Since their inception 8 years ago, the PPI Awards have gone from strength to strength, with both entries and attendees increasing each year.

The impact of radio on all our lives is a significant one, and the PPI Awards salute the contribution of writers, broadcasters, producers, reporters, presenters and technicians alike, in informing, educating and entertaining listeners throughout Ireland. Last year we embraced the whole island of Ireland as Northern Ireland stations entered for the first time. This was a most welcome development and we look forward to continuing to enhance the Awards together with our colleagues in Northern Ireland radio for many years to come"

In the mood for giving out ... bear with me !

This is the kind of " fox news'ish " boll*x propaganda that is poisoning
the American election campaign. They take an Obama comment out of context and turn it into this bullsh*t ad.

" Quick ...whip out a soldier boy, ya one that was over in that shit hole country with the oil we want, you know, where that smoke screen war's a going on !!, oh and make sure his leg was blown off .. ya that will look good... make em' all think those bastard iraqi street rats could blow y'all legs off .. oh and play some war time pride drumming in the back ground that builds to a big cheesy vocal singing about ...about...ah America ..fu*k ya"

They should have used this ...

And this is where it started ...

To think this tool could be the new president !

The " bomb iran " joke.

Im hungry.

End of the world ?

The Large Hadron Collider was flicked on today .... so far so good.

Just spotted Google's clever home page art to mark the occassion

What Spears really sounds like !

On occasions some modern day pop’tastic act's mime the vocals during live performances, (shock horror ) while their sound engineers play the original studio mix of the songs.
Their mic is always “ LIVE “ but the volume is reduced so to create the illusion of singing.

This is the “ live mic feed “ that the audience don’t actually hear.

Britney really sound's like this.....

Large Hadron Collider - The Search For The Higgs

Hello boys and girls it's science time.

Ok ... on Wednesday were all doomed.

End of the, maybe.

When they start smashing protons into each other at near speed of light the "Hadron Collider" could generate a " black hole "

A black hole is a region of space in which the gravitational field is so powerful that nothing, not even electromagnetic radiation (e.g. visible light), can escape its pull after having fallen past its event horizon.

The reason these clever people are doing this is to find " the higgs " The Higgs particle, popularised as the "God Particle", the un-observed particle that binds and holds all mass together.

It's really interesting stuff, so put away half an hour and watch all 3 videos
below in order, after that pray this thing wont suck the planet inside out.

You may have only 2days left so ask that hot bird out .. quickly !

O'Mahony Launches Hollywood Career

Finbarr Barry

While Kingdom fans might be scratching their empty heads following Cork's casual cancellation of their impeding victory in Croke Park on Sunday, film buffs in the county will be delighted to hear wing back Aidan O'Mahony is about to hit the big screen where he can compete with Cork megastars Cillian Murphy and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
The 26 year old Garda made such an impression in the semi-final clash against Cork that he has been contacted by the producers of the eighties classic The Fall Guy and offered the lead role in a mouth watering noughties remake.
Fox Pictures who are in a race against time to sign the Kerry actor/footballer will now send scouts to various Kerry club games to seek new acting talent.

Whooooo Haaaaaa !

And have you ever wondered whether the things you say in bed qualify as "acceptable" dirty talk? Well, this is a chart found that breaks down what is and is not appropriate !
