Nadia Forde's ex says there's nothing personal about music snub: 'It sounds like a Eurovision song'

Nadia Forde's ex boyfriend has slammed suggestions he's banned her songs from the FM104 airwaves.
The top model turned singer said yesterday that the Dublin station is the only station in Ireland that hasn't played her new single, Stuck.
She dated Strawberry Alarm Clock host Mark 'Nobby' Noble for three years, before splitting in 2011. He is married to Jackie Eyer.
But Noble has insisted there is no "personal" reason her music isn't played, instead saying it was the quality of the songs.
"I don't want anyone to think that I am somehow bitter or not 100% happy," he told the Irish Sun.
"There is nothing personal about this decision. If it was a brilliant song, of course we'd be playing Nadia's song. It just sounds like a Eurovision song."
Forde said yesterday, while promoting her 3e reality show Nadia: Chasing The Dream, that the station hasn't played her new single, Stuck, or her earlier release BPM.
"They're the only station in Ireland to never play my records. They don't even talk about me," the model/singer/reality star said.
"F**k it, I might as well be honest... They'll probably love the press."
Nadia pointed out that it was "weird" and said "they even played my new song Stuck on BBC Radio 2".
But an FM104 spokesperson said there was "no way we would let a former relationship affect our product".
When asked about Nadia's comments they said that her music isn't the right "fit" for the station.
"There is no ban on Nadia's records at FM104," they said.
"What we have are a team who look after the music and Nadia's music might not fit with our play-list. We pride ourselves on backing and supporting Irish acts at FM104."
