Friday Fun Time

April 12, 2013 in Quizzes

mallets_malletGood day to you all.  Here follows a real hotchpotch of a post.

It includes:

Right, so starting at the end (naturally), the IQO now has a web page and a new initiative.  Each Friday, the IQO site (quizireland.ie) will host five tricky, tricky questions to test you all.  Scouts’ honour you can’t use google.  Anyone can take part and can do so by simply emailing their name and answers to iqo@quizireland.ie.

Friday Five Trivia returns

July 22, 2011 in Podcast

After a two week hiatus, due to a severe bout of man-flu, my Friday Five Trivia podcast has returned to the airwaves – and to the audioboo system.

You can check it out below or via the oh-so-handy box on the right hand side of the page.

I have plans for these little quizzes.  For example, I’m thinking of doing at least one per month as an audio round or featuring dialogue clips.  What do people think?

And so the end is near: answers

May 30, 2011 in Gilligan's, Quizzes

Good morning all.  I know I said at the end of my most recent post that the answers would arrive “tomorrow morning” but, sometimes, life gets in the way of blogging.

You see, the reason I knew on Thursday last that I would have to post up the answers on Friday morning or else they wouldn’t be up for days is that my brother got married last Friday afternoon.  We had a great time, thanks for asking.  However, the day ended up being so busy that I simply didn’t have time to get to a computer.

Mind you, I did manage to squeeze in my weekly show on Claremorris Community Radio so the Friday Five Trivia are present and correct.  Albeit, they were posted on a Monday!

Check them out here:

Quizboo Eurovision Special

May 13, 2011 in Podcast

Happy Friday the 13th to you all.  I’m in a pretty good mood today as we are slap bang in the middle of Eurovision Song Contest week. 🙂

In honour of this special event, the Friday Five Trivia on this morning’s radio show were all about Europe’s biggest television show. You can check them out by clicking the convenient play button below.

My second Quizboo

April 29, 2011 in Podcast

Good afternoon all. I’ve now added a second podcast to my collection on audioboo.fm.

The lessons of last week have been learned and this one is most certainly under 5 minutes long.  However, I’m still not totally satisfied as I don’t think the audio quality is as good this time.  Still, there’s always next week.

Rome wasn’t built in a day.   In fact, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t built in a fortnight either. 🙂

Check it out below:

From here on, I don’t intend putting up a post every Friday.  So, I’ve added a new box to the right-hand menu which provides a link to the latest podcast.

Something new, something Boo

April 22, 2011 in Podcast, Quizzes

I host a show on Claremorris Community Radio every Friday morning.  It’s the Good Morning Show*, and sounds exactly you’d expect a show with that name to sound: music, diversions, you-text-in-and-I-read-it-out etc.

My own contribution to the format of the show is the Friday Five Trivia, where I ask five good questions to my faithful (or accidental) listeners.  There’s no prize on offer, it’s just a little something to blow off the cobwebs and wake up the brains out there. As I say. C’mon, I’m an amateur radio DJ! 😉

Anyway, from today I’m going to take the recording of my asking of these questions and post it on the brilliant audioboo.fm as a podcast. Here’s the first one, embedded in the post for your easy access:
