11 feelings Dubliners have about The Love Zone on Q102

The sound of the city.

1. At a certain time each night, Dublin makes the switch to The Love Zone

Five hours of the cheesiest, soppiest, most cringey romantic classics. Every day. What more could you want?

2. You’re bound to hear something great

Bit of Celine. Bit of Whitney. Bit of Seal. Grand job.

3. It’s the best programme to drive to

Rumour has it that James Corden came up with the idea for Carpool Karaoke from observing Dublin drivers listening to The Love Zone.

4. And to study to

Relaxing, unobtrusive, and extremely comforting, it has been powering students through for years.

5. People have been known to get in the car for it…

6. And stay in the car for it

Such is its power.

7. It is beloved of taxi drivers across the city

If you get into a taxi past 7pm and it isn’t playing The Love Zone, something is up.

8. And you think that might be awkward for the passengers but no. It’s brilliant

Just the two of us, silently swaying along to Didn’t We Almost Have It All. Didn’t we, taxi man? Didn’t we?

9. The best taxi drivers, though? They sing along with you

All it takes is for one of you to finally break and warble “I would catch a GRENAAAAAAAADE for ya!” and a friendship is born.

10. It’s the city’s collective guilty pleasure*

*Except if you freely admit to loving and needing The Love Zone. Respect.

11. And everyone harbours dreams of getting a shoutout from Debbie Allen

Is texting in a request for someone on The Love Zone the most romantic thing you can do? Yes. Yes it is.
