Today is the day 25 years ago that John Lennon was shot and killed on the street outside his apartment building in New York. It's not the sort of anniversary we could leave uncommemorated and so tonight on the show we'll have a half hour of the best of him and his Beatles output from 11.30.. R

Crackers? OK, random thoughts for the day in no particular order... I blog to you now from the eerie quiet of the 2FM offices where I'm the only soul about. The Christmas party is on in Temple Bar tonight in a very unsecret location. Got a text from Ruth saying the hot topic for discussion was why wasn't I coming, sent one back telling her that if that indeed was the hottest topic of the night maybe I was right in giving the whole shebang a miss... :-) Pithy to the last...

His main form of communication is folding his arms and slowly shaking his head. And regardless of the situation, he is always understood. Mr. T invented fools. Realizing the magnitude of his folly, he then created Pity. There are only four horsemen of the apocalypse, because Mr. T is going to walk. 23. That's the number of people Mr. T has...

Every show has its stalkers and I like to think one of our most zealous ones is Paddy From Dundalk (or The People's Republic Of Fundalk as he has taken too trying to get it renamed...) Last night I compared him to Jed the stalker in the episode To Kill A Mocking Alan (the one where he meets the two TV execs from Ireland) and he suggested he too would dedicate a wall in his house to me (and The Hoff instead of David Copperfield) in his house... Little did I think he would make inroads... H...
