Ian Wilson retires from RTÉ

Jim Lockhart, Ian Wilson and Dave Fanning

On the occasion of Ian Wilson‘s last official day at RTÉ before retirement he crossed the corridor for a chat with Dave Fanning and Jim Lockhart. Over the next 30 mins they reminisced in usual fashion with Dave reading out some tributes received from among others; The Atrix, The Hitchers, Orange Fettishes, Grevious Angels and My Little Funhouse. There were some great tales of recording the Scary Éire session and Ian locking Dave out of the studio when he turned up late for a Prefab Sprout interview. There is also an answer to the question as to whether U2 recorded the first Fanning session.

    Wow really sorry to hear Ian is going, will be sorely missed. What a great champion of independent music. I was always been struck by his great love and energy for young emerging acts on the Irish scene.. Thanks for all your help over the years. Take care Ian..xxx
