Hearty congratulations to Rick O’Shea for his new 6pm to 9pm radio show on 2fm. Dave Fanning on Radio1 on weeknights now! Jebus. Mystery Train and John Kenny have left the station! Christ bike etc. Wow, Rick is going head to head with Tom Dunne AND Dave Fanning. No pressure fella!
Congrats to Rick!
But John Kelly’s waaaaay better than Dave Fanning – that’s disappointing…
Ditto, John Kelly is a big big loss. The fools, the fools!
[…] Rick, do you still talk about blogging on your show? Will you be converting your new audience to the ways of the blog and thereby allowing Damien to sell tickets for the next blog awards on ticketmaster to cover your appearance fee? […]
Its John Kelly who does the Mystery Train – not John Kenny (who’s a heavy metal fan who does the sports news). Get your facts right.
[…] A throwaway remark in one of Damien Mulleyâ€™s posts today went through like a dagger. The Mystery Train is no more! Itâ€™s like a death in the family, or the loss of an old friend. Really, Iâ€™m in mourning. I listen to the show every evening as I make my dinner. I might as well just skip my evening meal altogether now that such a vital element of its preparation is no more. The suggestion that I simply switch over to Pet Sounds betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of the Mystery Train demographic. Weâ€™re just getting too bloody old to care about indie music anymore. Has Tom Dunne played any Blind Willie Johnson recently? Any Bettye Swann? Any Buck Owens? Of course not. Weâ€™re soon to be a lost tribe, us Mystery Train passengers, vainly wandering up and down the dial in search of the occasional snatch of Lefty Frizell or Lightnin’ Slim (why do they all have such cool names?). […]
The loss of the Mystery Train I’m not too bothered about. What got me was when they cancelled the Eclectic Ballroom back before Radio Ireland transmuted into Today FM. Damn, that sucked so much ass.
