The Love Letter

Limerick 95FM do Late Night Love from about 10pm-12pm Sun-Thurs. They encourage people to write in and share their feelings and other such crap. The highlight of the show is the twice nightly Love Letter where some hopeless loser gets to write in about how the love of their life dumped them or otherwise screwed them over and made their life a misery. Given that this is Limerick the standard and quality of the writing (let alone the stories) leave a lot to be desired and the reading skills of the presenter have to be heard to be believed. Not having a TV, the Late Night Love and the Love Letter provides the kind of insight into the general uselessness and hoplessness of peoples lives that most people get from Corrie or Eastenders.

So for the next few weeks, or until we get bored we are going to catalogue the Love Letters accroding to type and subtype to see if there is a pattern and possibly with the ideal of writing the perfect letter to be read on air!!

Last nights letters were
