He’ll tackle a range of radio and TV projects, but will they live up to what he’s already achieved?

3. Christmas Crisis

The Den Christmas special from 1992 was engrained in the minds of every Irish 80s kid. Lucky for us, some hero has uploaded it all to YouTube.

2.  Shave or Dye

Ray is a massive running force in the charity drive every year, always shaving, dying, or… waxing.

1. Interviewing Mary Robinson on The Den

Obviously number one. Irish society peaked when Dustin suggested our president had smelly feet.
