Alfa 159!

I'll second that, not everyone's cup of tea but an irish institution and an honest man who cared about his fellow man.

on another note, can I second, Leeds Leeds Leeds!

I'm not a fan of talk shows but he was definitly the greatest talkshow host on tv or radio in the world. He dealt with some really serious issues and definitly improved many peoples lives over the last 20+ years.

R.I.P Gerry, you will be missed by many.

Contrary to alot of people I really liked his radio shows and he wasn't half as bad on tv as people made out. He will be missed...

Bl**dy hell, Gerry Ryan is dead

I remember when he presented the 10-12 slot every week night on Radio2/2FM before he moved to the morning slot and the start of his morning show which morphed into a talk show.

RIP Gerry

My radio was only ever switched on at 9 am and off at twelve, some people didnt like him cos they reckoned he was a "know all" but when you listened to his show you knew that he would talk about anything, anything at all, he never claimed he knew it all, he was just such a good chatter box. i feel so sorry for the people like the guy that rang up on saturday, he was a sales rep, on the road every day and he said that gerry ryan was his passenger every working day for almost 20 years! he will be missed by many many people, me included, r.i.p.gerry
