It was a simple enough pitch.
Presuming I’d be told to feck off I suggested to the boss that for Christmas 2014 he should allow a few 2FM presenters to put together some night-time shows with the brief that all the tunes are things you wouldn’t normally hear on the regular 2fm playlist.
I did this mainly because I wanted to do one of them.
We’re on. And he’s even letting us use the name for the show that I suggested –
“Not On The F&%£ing Playlist“.
Let’s see how they make the jingles for that one…
The show runs for 4 nights, 8 to 10pm each night:
Monday December 29th: Me
Tuesday December 30th: Ciara King from Chris & Ciara
Wednesday December 31st: Breakfast Republic’s Keith Walsh
Thursday January 1st: Louise McSharry
If you want some idea of what my show is going to sound like have a look back at some of these…
