"You promised me the ending would be clear/ You'd let me know when the time was now/ Don't let me know when you're opening the door/ Strap me in the dark, let me disappear"

Bring Me The Disco King - 'Reality'

Brendan O'Connor's a huge David Bowie fan - he pulled over the car at a red light and cried when he heard that Bowie had died - so he'll get the reference above, hopefully. Last Friday at 5pm, he disappeared from the Sunday Independent offices after two decades, to be the Radio King. RTE is very lucky to have him.
