Day 1(or is it 6?!?!)……

Weird…. Have been threatening to do this kind of thing for ages and the start of the new breakfast show seemed the ideal time. The hope is that I’ll have a little time each day to ramble my ramblings along with the rest of the blogverse (is that a word..? If not I claim the copyright!)

Already we’re a week and a bit into the new show…. Having said that am I presuming too much just in case you stumbled in here accidentally?!?!?! I’m Rick O’Shea the co-presenter, along with Ms Ruth Scott, of the new breakfast show on RTE 2FM; the national broadcaster here in Ireland. Right, where was I……?

Week 2 of the show and I’m in a bustling office after brekkie (RTE canteen breakfasts…. Mmmmm….. No, seriously!) after one meeting and before another meeting. The first culture shock of presenting a breakfast show hasn’t been the early starts (actually coping quite well with the 4am starts!) but the sheer amount of work that goes into a 3 hour show 5 days a week.

Before you say it, I know! Normal folk work 8 hours a day commuting another 2 sometimes 6 days a week! I am still blessed in the amount but it’s still a culture shock 🙂 Meetings, being interviewed (and photographed!!! Really not mad about that…), playlists, music, writing, devising competitions…. All beats real work though still…. 🙂

  1. Welcome welcome Rick, good to see you here, looking forward to reading this over the coming weeks to see how your settling in! 🙂

  2. Good God…you’re blogging.. that should make for some interesting reading if you open your mind to the general world….

  3. Ahh a virgin blog. Now… how to corrupt you into doing my bidding?

    Anyway, just as I was becoming a die-hard Ryan Tubridy fan he up and leaves. It was a tense few weeks, wondering who was going to fill his ultra shiny ‘comfortable shoes’. It’s different. Not bad, just different. Keep up the different work Rick.

  4. It’s a Ruhtless blog! O’Sheam on you. How can we Rickommend your entry into the blogsphere without you getting off Scott free.

    Seriously though, welcome. The show’s great. Keep up the good work and Penguins are a perfectly satisfactory breakfast.
