Bronze At The IMRO Radio Awards 2019!

Cormac Moore IMRO Radio Awards

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.

If you have yet to taste the wonderful offerings that we air nightly on FM104, you can subscribe to the Room 104 podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Acast and all the usual places you get your podcasts from. Some of the features are here on the site, just click on the blog and you’ll find some of the interviews and features.

We’ll see what happens next year.

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.

Pranking Emma Nolan With Fake Electric Picnic Tickets

Pranking Emma Nolan FM104

So Emma Nolan, who does the 10-3 show on FM104 was desperately looking for tickets to this years Electric Picnic. 

Understandable in fairness. It’s an insanely good gig and always sells out within minutes.

She put up on her Instagram story that she was looking for tickets and that she’d be fairly upset and might die from the FOMO if she didn’t get them.

Cue Cormac

Seeing this, I quickly messaged her asking “Do you need electric picnic tickets?!”, planting a seed of possibility that would become crucial to pulling this wool over her eyes.

Anyway, a few moments later I called and this is what happened:

Cruel I know. But also rather funny. And good news is I believe she got tickets in the end to the festival anyway.

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.
