The Ghost Of Christmas Past…

Posted on

A thought this evening; as I’m mostly a positive person in life (though not always, I’m definitely not a “have a nice day freak”!) and I was rifling through some old folders on my PC I thought I’d share a few best bits of the show in the 5 and a half months it was on and a few pictures to go with them.

Since March, I was given advice by Gay Byrne, given the honour of paying tribute to Larry Gogan in the film made for his awards ceremony, had my name on the side of a bus:


played Mallett’s Mallet with Timmy Mallett, spoke to the real Veruca Salt, had breakfast with audiences in Galway and Athlone, had a debs with audience, full house band and celebrity guests for no real apparent reason other than it seemed like a good idea at the time (!), saw REM on Glasgow Green:


(Bit crap I know but we were fairly far back and it was dark!) Broadcast from BBC Scotland AND sat in a chair once occupied by Terry Wogan!!!!!!



Got interviewed by pretty much every newspaper in the country, was the special guest at a midnight bookshop opening for Harry Potter:


Fed the ring-tailed lemurs in the Zoo!!

Met Eddie Hobbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And for a brief time appeared in South Park:

Not bad for 5 and a half months, eh? 🙂

Yes, I feel like Homer telling Bart and Lisa about the Be Sharps…

Yes, I know it’s late. Sleep? Sleep is for the weak…..

  1. Hey Rick, you probably don’t remember me (I used to email you a hell of a lot around 2-3 years ago during your 2fm night show). Sorry to hear you took a setback there, but hey, nobody died, so I’m sure you’ll bounce back nicely :-).

    Take care of yourself – and keep writing away in here!
