I never really was one for birthdays or anniversaries but I’m ashamed that I’ve missed the first birthday of the blog which fell last week. How times have changed:
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…. 🙂

The style did settle down after a while.
Even weirder to see how your life can change in this industry in twelve months. What will I be doing on the blog’s second anniversary?
