Katy Perry without makeup!!!!



Anyone else think she looks like Billy's new Missus in Eastenders?

The video everyone is talking about!




Update - The video as you can see has millions of views and was picked up and broadcast by numerous radio and TV stations in the U.S.A. Only 3 days ago Ted was a homeless man begging on the streets, these are just a few of the offers Ted has received since the internet made him a star :)

- Arena announcer for THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS -- including a salary and they will buy him a house!

- OHIO CREDIT UNION LEAGUE gave him $10,000 cash and a retainer deal for voicework!

- ESPN is reportedly offering him a job!

- MTV reportedly wants to discuss a reality series!

- A free vacation trip to Hilo, Hawaii to voice a commercial ... and the list goes on!

It's an amazing story and nice to get some good news for a change :)

Morning Show with Declan Meehan, Wednesday 5th January 2011

Wednesday 5th January
The Morning Show with Declan Meehan


There was water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink on today’s edition of the Morning Show with Declan Meehan. With the snow set to return later this week many homes are still being left without supplies overnight and we asked the powers that be if the end is in sight for Wicklow’s residents. We also found out about the state of the county’s roads, waiting lists in Loughlinstown hospital and the contentious issue of commercial vehicle tax reared its ugly head once more.

It wasn’t all bad news however property experts myhome.ie told us how Wicklow is bucking the trend in falling house prices and Minister Dick Roche defended the the Seanad amid talk of its possible abolition.

Author Mick Lynch joined Declan later on to pay his respects to Gerry Rafferty the singer/songwriter behind the classic ‘Baker Street’ tune and as if all that wasn’t enough one of the best known politicians in the country, the Labour leader, Eamon Gilmore took time out of the party’s Wicklow launch of their candidates for the next general election to visit the East Coast studio.

The Morning Show with Declan Meehan


Thousands of homes and businesses around the country were left without water over the festive period; we began the first edition of the Morning Show for 2011 by examining the effect of disruptions on Wicklow’s residents. Staying with the damage caused by the recent cold weather we also spoke to local councillors about the numerous repairs needed on the county’s roads and asked if there is simply not enough money to fix them.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom however; on the day that most people returned to work, David Moore from Astronomy Ireland gave us a fascinating insight into the morning’s solar eclipse and our resident TV addict Anne Kennedy brought us the latest gossip from all the soaps.

Later on, New Year’s resolutions were put to the test when DJ Rob Gormely told us about his ‘cold turkey’ efforts to quit smoking and we discussed the rise in popularity of self-help books.

Our host Declan Meehan rounded out today’s show with a lively discussion on Fine Gael’s new website which promises to listen to public opinion and the possible abolition of the Seanad.
