Quality slipping? Maybe not.

I love this show and it’s a staple of my Saturday morning walk. Best wishes to Marian on her retirement. I understand with new presenters comes some change. Just remember not to throw the baby out with the bath water. This is supposed to be the highlights from the week’s radio; not a platform to promote fringe RTÉ programmes from online stations. I wish the new team well. Just remember the brief and try not to be so disjointed shamelessly shoehorning silly clips in at every juncture. Quality not quantity! Will give it another couple of weeks...

The new presenter Sinead Mooney has returned Playback to what it should be- a rye, entertaining and reflective take on the week’s radio highlights. Thankfully no more shameless plugging of RTEs fringe/online stations. Great!!

Big Fan

Unlike this show an awful lot, it really gives the listener a chance to catch up on the best bits of RTÉ. If I have one complaint about Playback it's that it includes far too much of the Nob Nation tripe. It really isn't funny. Comedy based solely on political parody died in the 90s.

In response to earlier reviews, I've been downloading this podcast for over a year and it is always updated on Friday evening so you an actually listen to it before it goes on air on the Saturday.
