As mentioned on Allan’s blog, today is the day to complain to RTE if you want them to reinstate the real Rick O’Shea show and reverse their no chit-chat policy.
If you want to complain, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
They will read it and so far they’ve replied to all emails. You might not think one email or a dozen pople emailing will make an impact, but it will.
I emailed RTE not because Rick is the Bloggie and Webby MC guy but because his show got me listening and texting and interacting and roaring with laughter or shock at what people said on-air or by text. Some of the shows were quite touching too. But now all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
