Gerry Ryan RIP
Yesterday morning I listened to what I didn't realise was to be his last show as he started off with a witty review of the daily papers followed by a piece on parents slapping their children, not a topic that would be considered 'acceptable' by most other media shows. But it sparked a wonderful thought-provoking debate from callers who seemed to be mainly young mothers.
The programme was mad, funny, irreverent, subversive, sarcastic, silly, serious, disrespectful, educational... In other words, the usual mix for a Gerry Ryan show
