Big enough to fill gerry ryan Whether or not you were a regular devotee of gerry ryan's show and many of us, myself included, could dip in and then stay out over a period of months or even years there's absolutely no denying that he did command the attention of the nation. More than 200, 000 listeners a Evening Dresses Cheap UK day tuned into what bono described as"The leader of our country for three hours in the morning"And that will be an extremely difficult act to follow. Replacing like with like certainly isn't an option given that there was noone like gerry.For another broadcaster to even attempt to mimic his style would be sheer madness. Extending the breakfast show by an hour and trimming the main morning programme to two hours is obviously an option, but that then presents the nation with the appalling prospect of having to suffer the dribbling inanities of colm hayes and jimjim(So bad they named him twice)For an additional 60 minutes every day.Nein danke to that one. For now colm hayes stwd and lucy kennedy are filling gerry's slot on a temporary basis. It's hard to see this being a long term scenario. Gerry's good friend and colleague dave fanning has been mentioned as a contender to fill the slot, but it's hard to see him actually even wanting the gig given how it's so associated with his late pal. He was a success on the 2fm breakfast slot and moving him to radio one was a strange decision at the time. But does the old fogey and blackrock college boy have gerry's common touch and affinity with the plain folk of ireland?Would he be comfortable chating to noirin from nenagh about her haunted hay shed and make it convincing radio?Gerry was but ryan?Unlikely. Furthermore, does ryan want to move from his pretty cushy 50 minute Flower Girl Dresses UK a morning slot to three hours of live radio everyday.Again unlikely. So ryan moving over from radio 1 doesn't look like a runner at all. Outside of rte there are two pretty strong contenders. How about tom dunne on newstalk. He's got the common touch and produces highly entertaining radio. Then there's ray d'arcy who has built up an audience of more than 200, 000 listeners, has worked well for rte in the past hosting the den, and the rose of tralee and is definitely maturing as a radio broadcaster.
