    So, by now you are probably aware of YET MORE changes at RTE radio.. Yes, i know you couldn`t give a fuc*ingmonkeybollock what happens behind the scenes in Radio - i AM aware the ONLY people concerned with radio nonsense are People who WORK in radio, and i am aware this perticular paragraph holds no real interest for you, but i`m sorry, i MUST do this for all my homies out there that DO work in radio, and need validation for their life-choice - just like i do. Yes. That is the point of all this. It`s why there is an EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH at your local fast-food shithole..So, this season's EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH in radioland? MR BIG. yep. good old MR BIG. he who has been buying up media outlets for years.. he who was an independent Mobile-phone pioneer, he who took on Telecom, he who now takes on RTE... Oh yes.. i was witness to one of his famed Rants in recent weeks, as i pretended to be a member of staff at one of his (many) radio stations.. It began calmly - kinda like an RTE meeting, everybody shuffling and trying to get in view of the boss to score a few "i attended the meeting" brownie points - you know, the BOSS you have never actually seen, the BOSS you are threaten'd with slaps from if you are bold? yeah.. him.. So, he begins by thanking everyone for working for fuc*-all for so many years, and saying how much he appreciates all the piles of cash he gets from it all.. and then, most unlike an RTE meeting, he starts to get animated.. Oh yes.. like his triple-shot mocca-happy-chino is kicking in real goodo, like he is a Microsoft Exec just after having an enormous slurp from the plasma-tank, and he cruises.. First we hear how we woz Dicked by RTE, the Irish Government and Aer Lingus, and then we hear how the "Fat-Cats" are about to fall as "We" have them by the balls now.. We hear how he is going to push and push the "big boys" until they break, he Rants he doesn`t care HOW much money he looses in the short term, as it all works out in the grand scheme of things.. On and On he rants, getting more hyper and pissed off and red-faced as he goes.. Rant, Rant, Rant.. he stops just short of blaming RTE for cancelling STAR TREK, shooting Malcom-X, and bieng at the root of all bad things that happen, and ever will happen to "us" - INCLUDING the fact we/they are underpaid, overworked, not appreciated and obviously idiots if we/they swallow this little song & dance.. In his summing-up I Heard at least 10 words i know don`t really exist that he made up to confuse people who were keeping up with him, including "embettering" , "pro-richen" and "de-consignarary".. He then wraps up the meeting by doing an animal-house style "who's with me?" to a roar of "YEAH!!!" from the troops (now in full battle-armour with painted faces and all..) and he and his *****-copeland-clad pals leg it through the audience, hi-five-ing and back-slapping as they go, straight out the door and into the Merc., just in time to hit COSTALOTS for a few scoops with lunch, before golf, Gin & tonics and early bed as they have to get up early tomorrow to ruin RTE... And so ends the Yearly pep-Rally by MR BIG, who, incidently, was on the mobile almost immediatly after his little visit to a potential BUYER for the station to assure them all is good and morale is as high as ever... Oh yes.. So this is how the indies "do" a meeting.. Kinda fun huh? Certainly more fun then a meeting at RTE.. For starters, nobody ever says anything incase they then have to follow through with some action of some sort.. And we don`t have some guy in a suit, obviously over-stimulated, leaping around the stage calling the opposition names and stirring up emotion in the troops.. Oh no, that would angry-up the blood too much, and could lead to something actually happening in the long term.. Best to just have the meeting in secret in the least obvious place, and only invite people who have no spine, are deaf and/or will not turn up.. Perfect.Anyway, when i take over, there will be a few changes.. I'm gonna actually USE the massive Budget and resources at my disposal in RTE. ALL meetings and discussion will be broadcast live, and people will have to compete to earn the chance to attand a meeting, as there will be spot-prizes, and a free bar.. The structure and location of meetings will change too.. no more dusty crypts and graveyards, no more Cloak & Dagger stuff, no more human sacrifice (unless you are sacked) and and end to flagellation and hot coals.. Meetings will have special guest stars to read out the bad news, and issue the challenges/break news about everyone bieng moved to 4am on a tuesday on LYRIC despite doing well etc.. We will have a more effective rewards system too.. People doing well ratings-wise will get Chrysler Crossfires and Instant holidays, people doing badly will get to play Russian Roulette on their family guided by a member of the public.. Just picture it, WILL SMITH announces the saturday Brekkie show on 2FM is down by .02% in waterford, so a member of the public gets to talk Mark McCabe through (maybe) shooting his dog in the head, while Nikki Hayes who was Up 500 listeners in Sligo would be whisked away to the airport to start an instant 10-day holiday in manilla, staying at the fanastic Playboy-Hilton Casino & Racetrack Resort... Oh yes, finally a use for all those people that spend their time slagging off RTE on messageboards and in the press.. Finally they will have their dreams come true - they get to appear on RTE, AND get to torture the presenter/person they have been brainwashed into hating.. Think about it, you know it's a winner.. And the best bit? RTE will (once again) have the last laugh, as all this Venom that has been brewing for years in the Indie sector will be used to entertain people, which i should stress, is why we are all here in the first place..

    Filling in for DAN all this week Midnite-2am, although i`m NOT doing the usual Vinyl-Reanimation Thing, i think 8 hours of it would be more trouble then it is amusing..

    Have you noticed how many Festivals and events there are this summer in Ireland? You can See ******, PETSHOP BOYS, THE WHO, GABRIEL & DRESDEN and GLEN CAMPBELL this summer if you really feel the need! WTF? i mean really WTF.. So, i did a quick tot of the total costs involved to cover all angles, and i am pleased to present the OFFICIAL BUDGETARY GUIDE TO FESTIVALS IN IRELAND SUMMER 2006.. Remember, this is only a rough guide, there is no acceptable minimum or maximum for Festival-intoxication levels (EU 1992 directive 0004563a, para. 5c) so you cannot actually have "enough" drink on you at any stage of the proceedings.. Also, this guide does not take into account eBAY prices, Booking fees, Loss of Belongings, Required Medical Attention and Bieng Ripped off by local Hackneys. You are advised that there WILL be random Breath-tests on the route to both MIDLANDS and OXYGEN, and people found not to have any drink taken will be beaten and humilated by the side of the road as everyone else passes by - DON'T RISK IT IT'S NOT WORTH IT - play safe and down a naggin of DunnesStores Vodka Before you leave the house. Figures may not represent any actual real truths, and may be completely made up on the spot. Terms And conditions apply.


    Booze n' Drugz: 100eu x 2days = 200eu
    Spine-in-a-bap & Warm Water: 50eu x 2days = 100eu
    Travel: Grade -2 Middle-Of-Nowhere = 55eu
    Total: 515eu

    Electric Picnic

    Booze n' Drugz: 90eu x 3 days = 270eu
    Falafel Wraps & AquaLibra: 60eu x 3days = 180eu
    Travel: Grade -3 Middle-Of-Nowhere = 60eu
    Total: 685eu


    Booze n' Drugz: 150eu x 2days = 300eu
    ChewingGum & TapWater: 10eu x 2days = 20eu
    Travel: Grade -1 Middle-Of-Nowhere = 50eu
    Total: 520eu

    Midlands Music Festival

    Guinness "and a G&T for the mot": 75eu x 2days = 150eu
    Brekfast Rolls & More Guinness: 75eu x 2 = 150eu
    Travel: Grade -7 Middle-Of-Nowhere = 2500eu (after drunk-driving fine)
    Total: 2920eu


    Booze' n' Drugz: 75eu x 1 night
    Whopper with Fries: 5eu
    Travel: Grade +1 Within gobbing Distance of All know Methods of Local And National Transport = 10eu
    Total: 107.50eu

    So.. To stay 100% Fashionable this Summer, you need between 2 and 5 GRAND. Yep. That's correct. You read it right.. Oh, and before you start Plotting to do them all MINUS the MIDLANDS, let me remind you that GLEN CAMPBELL is a living ledgend (at least i think he is still alive..) and attandence is required if you are to claim any sort of depth for your love of music. Think i`m spoofing? Check LINEMAN FOR THE COUNTY and GALVESTON out.. Yeah, now you see.. In fact, there is only 1 person in existance who is cooler then GLEN, and that's PAUL ANKA, but you knew that already... (etc.)
