turns out john kelly's mystery train is back on the air, 7-9pm. never got into his afternoon show - wrong time for me/not great driving music. the one time i did listen, i was reversing out of a parking space on main st. swinford when the innocuous piece he was playing suddenly erupted with the sound of a car horn - i thought i was about to cause a pile-up. but 7-9pm seems like a decent slot.

So this seems a constant weekly topic in the Sunday independent (I think they have a list of regular topics that when they need articles, will include)

Is it me or if this comes to pass, sky and virgin will write to their customers

It would almost be funny if it didn't basically guarantee a hike in the tv licence fee along with zero improvement to any of their services. I mean RTE could hardly be more shite. Their programs are spectacularly awful and the RTE player literally isn't fit for purpose. I thought I was finally going to get some use out of them during the recent world cup but the quality on the player was so bad that I had to go back to the dodgy sites to get a watchable stream. At the risk of sounding like a taxi driver what do pay for? I mean I'm not against public service broadcasting per se (nor indeed the orchestra etc) but I literally get nothing out of it.
