There was Minder

Outstanding broadcaster in my opinion, during the late 80's early 90's I listened to his show for many years and thought he was fair, witty and couldn't be messed around with
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

I used to enjoy listening to him on talkback. He spent a crazy weekend in Greencastle, back in 1980, playing golf with Nick Faldo, drinking with Vera Duckworth, Mike Baldwin & half the cast of Corrie and singing with Johnny Logan.

RIP David.

Saw a bit of David Dunseith in the mid 90's and he was very good, giving everyone a fair hearing but not letting freaks away with, well, being freaks. But if so many people here think he was a fair minded presenter, does that mean themmuns think he was outrageously biased? Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam

Andrew Boyd, author of the excellent Holy War in Belfast has died aged 90.

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/local-national/northern-ireland/socialist-writer-andrew-boyd-dies-16019797.html

Anyone interested in the long term background to recent events in East Belfast should read this book.

I am pretty sure that Oliver Napier and David Dunseith were familiar with it.
