Producer Paul Russell took us through the Gerry Ryan Show's "very definitely not wanted" list back in the day...
Roy "Chubbie" Brown
Terence, after he went in search of his "true inner self", taking magic mushrooms on a small island off the Irish coast.
Leoluca Orlando. Actually we'd have this anti-mafia Italian politician back on the show, but not his henchmen. When Gerry interviewed him in Sicily he brought a limo-full of armed guards who swarmed over the entire radio building.
Politicians, unless they're throwing pancakes or reciting poetry, like Ian Paisley.
Ocean Colour Scene, who, during a live session sneaked in a song with the word "arse" in it. They were shite as well.
National Fencing Association. We once tried to do a demonstration on air, but it's more a visual thing!
The farmer who called to tell us he'd told his kids there was no Santa Claus.
The owner of an Irish hotel who threatened during a broadcast from his establishment that if Gerry didn't give him more plugs "the bongos would go in the river".
