Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
