With news coming in that Pat Kenny is set to leave RTE and change over to Newstalk, it leaves a gap in RTE Radio 1's mid-morning schedule. We would be remiss if we didn't offer some suggestions to replace the Grand Plank...
5. HOWARD STERN
Have you ever seen Private Parts? Just imagine that shit going down on RTE. Your mother would freak out.
4. ALAN PARTRIDGE
Yes, we know Alan Partridge is a fictional character. But to be totally honest, we initially thought Pat Kenny was a fictional character, too. Plus, has anybody actually ever seen Alan Partridge and Pat Kenny in the same room together? Didn't think so.
3. HANDSOME DAN FROM 'Wayne's World'
Ah-huh. Ah-huh. Eh-hhm. Ah-huh.
2. DJ RUBY RHOD FROM 'The Fifth Element'
Chris Tucker ripping off Prince with blonde hair that's shaped like a penis and wearing a leopard onesie. That's exactly what RTE Radio 1 needs to boost audience figures.
1. ANY OF THE RADIO STATIONS FROM 'Grand Theft Auto'
Honestly, how cool were the radio stations from Grand Theft Auto? They had Juliette Lewis and Iggy Pop in Grand Theft Auto IV, but our favourite was Fever 105FM from Vice City.
