I know, bronze is nothing too exciting to write home about. Echoing in my head is Ricky Bobby’s: “You’re either first, or last!”.
Truer words have never been spoken, but we’ll take what we can get.
The show was entered in the Best Interactive Speech Category at the IMRO Radio Awards 2019 and was shortlisted and we picked up the bronze award on the night. The show was only on air 2 months, annoyingly, the full rebrband package hadn’t been finalised, so officially, we couldn’t enter Room 104, but from a programming point of view, it was completely Room 104.
Nice to get some recognition from colleagues in the industry and congrats to Ciara Kelly on her win with Lunchtime Live on Newstalk.

Irish comedian Brian Gallagher was my guest on this week’s episode of My Worst Gig. He shared a beautiful story about gigging in small Irish town that were apparently a little bit racist. Which must have been awkward.
Brian has done the Vodafone Comedy Festival and comedy tent at Electric Picnic and runs the Riff Raff comedy club in the Chelsea Drug Store too.
He’s also a regular contributor to the hugely successful TRY channel on YouTube.
You can listen to the full interview below or subscribe to the Room 104 podcast whenever you get your podcasts from.
You can stalk Brian online on his Twitter and Instagram Too.
So, as you know, there are a number of rude place names in Ireland. Muff, Nobber and Hackballscross come to mind first.
There are also a number of towns spread out across the world with equally hilarious names. Thankfully, some people who make maps got bored one day and decided to create one that shows about 300 of the rudest place names in the world. Hilarious.
