Still miss good old Gerry Anderson - used to Tune in every morning for the hand over Nolan to Gerry slot.  Some of the calls that gerry took that were aired on the Animation show 'On The Air' were excellent.  Still can get a good few of them on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1M5j-VaZIw

Nolan could never deal with Gerry Anderson who followed him every day.

Sean Coyle who was his sidekick still does a fair job with the music at 10-30 am each day under the guidance of producer Michael Bradley.  Doesn't always get it right as he panders to a few regular listeners' requests but Bradley does keep him on track most of the time.

Rufus T Firefly was bang on the marx with his earlier post. Was listening to Lynette Faye one Saturday evening recently. Apart from her annoying habit of talking over the song intros until the vocals start, she was all over The Moy team who were on their way home from winning their All Ireland semi. It was a refreshing change to hear that sort of thing

I have never condoned perverts masquerading as priests and hope they all rot in hell.I do not like anti catholics however accusing the Church of facilitating this and particularly blaming  Sean Brady for Brendan Smyth's existence. As we've seen recently with Oxfam today even organisations try stupidly to protect their reputation by keeping things in house.

I was at Mass in Lurgan on Saturday night and a letter was read out by the Bishop expressing his sincere apologies for Finnegan and his victims and pointed out all the contacts for reporting suspected child abuse today.I have no doubt of the sincerity of the remorse and determination to protect children at all times today
Bishop McAreavey seemed content to condone perverts masquerading as priests when he celebrated Malachy Finnegans funeral mass

You're not wrong there. I don't know how other folk on this board do things but I go to the doctors regularly to get myself checked out.  Well actually it's the nurse I go to see. I've high blood pressure and poor cholesterol and am overweight but I'm getting everything under control. Nurse checks weight and BP every 6 weeks and I get my bloods done about every 6 months (or maybe it's 12 months). Point is getting those checks gives me a fighting chance as regards diagnosing the big C and other things. Lads you should all be doing the same

Always pictured you as a younger man, fit and well.  Did you have to ask for this regime or does your practice offer it to all men.  Was hoping that my own practice would be having an MOT for men over a certain milestone.
I had been going about every. 6 months or so, encouraged by my doctor, but I'm now going to the nurse every 6 weeks as an incentive to keep up my weight loss. Mind you my blood pressure is so well controlled it's now on the low side and as I'm walking 5 miles 3 or 4 times a week I'm feeling fit.

Just get yourself checked out. Great choice of dog. Was it a pup?

It gets easier I promise you. Look forward to hearing from you in 2028. Me, I'm looking forward to my grandson representing our Club in the 2031 Feile. I'll be 71 then

Yup and a grandson who's just 10 weeks old and staying with us for a few days while his parents take a well earned break. Seems like his dad was born only yesterday. What age are your kids?

I not knocking you but there's a certain macho flavour (there is a word for it but I can't remember it) about what you say. As men, we're always looking to impress. Your boast is you haven't been to the doctors since you were 19.  I find myself trying to impress women by telling them how many tablets I'm on. It's human nature for males. Get registered with a doctor and get yourself checked out. I know fitter people than you thst have taken heart attacks. By the way did you ever get the dog
