Host: Ann Gleeson
Show: The KC Show
I’ve always liked Ann Gleeson’s Showbiz Swipe not only because I’m shamefully well-informed on pop matters (emphasis being on the ‘matters’ of course), but she and the rest of the KC team succeed in making a bit of a mockery out of pampered, fringe-flicking celebrities.
They discuss how Paul Mc Carthy has graciously offered to do a pub gig … for one million pounds!
The money, however, will go to Children in Need and not into Paul’s back pocket.
The KC kids then chat about One Direction, phone bills and Gwyneth Paltrow ‘s Vanity Fair drama.
Gwyneth has apparently warned friends not to talk to Vanity Fair saying, “If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline.”
Vanity Fair’s editor has insisted that regardless of Paltrow’s thoughts on the not-so-flattering article, they will go on to run the story.
I like Gleeson’s approach to showbiz issues, no matter how ridiculous they may seem.
She and the rest of the KC Show hosts have genuine charisma and provide actual entertainment, making them rare gems in Irish radio broadcasting.
