Break-up Guide

Break-up Guide

"Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go.." - so says the lyrics of a well-known pop song & who could disagree? Most of us have been the victim of a difficult break up, or are perhaps planning one for the near future. Whatever the case, Rena Maycock of Intro Matchmaking joins Dave with her guide to the five phases of breaking up.

Warring Bands

Warring Bands

Ah, the halcyon days of the summer of 1995 & the height of Britpop when the infamous rivalry between Blur & Oasis hit its peak as both fought it out for the coveted number one spot in the UK singles chart.

Of course Blur & Oasis aren’t the only music acts to have squabbled so bitterly in the full glare of the record buying public and Roisin O’ Dwyer, Commissioning Editor of Hot Press joins Dave in studio to tell us about some of the less savoury ones.

Cycling History

Cycling History

The dispute over flying the Union flag at council buildings has rumbled on all year in Northern Ireland  & you probably won’t be surprised to hear that the flag debate has been ongoing for decades.

 In 1934 it was even the catalyst for a row in cycling of all things that was to see some of Ireland’s best athletes being prevented from competing internationally – & confined to competing on the roads of Ireland alone.  Historian Ryle Dwyer joins Dave this morning.
