Q. What’s worse than actively praising or trashing a show?
A. Not caring at all

This is my 2nd review on MoylesWorld. I’ll be blunt and say that I don’t care if this show is crap or not. I know that by listening to music that it is making life a little easier but the image of that plane will live with me for the rest of my life and it doesn’t matter how many times the news show it, it still sends shivers down my spine. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those that were killed and with the emergency services and I hope and pray that the governments of the free democracies in this world are able to get themselves sorted and find out who did these terrible acts and quash them before it turns into an even more traumatic event.

And with that:

Claire is back and tells us about the people under the World Trade Centre have rung up with their mobiles. 800 people are confirmed dead in the Pentagon and that a lot of the dead in New York are the emergency services who were on hand before the towers collapsed. Claire then reads and e-mail out from a lady in Mid Manhattan giving her views. Chris then tells us that they were going to have a phone call with Jerry Springer from Chicago but that was if the show was a normal one. Jerry will be giving his views shortly.

A record that I’ve never heard before

Chris introduces Jerry Springer to the show. Jerry says that its unbelievable and brings the whole country to a bump as they realised that America is no longer safe. Jerry reveals that he was ready to recording a bunch of shows yesterday and was watching his television and saw the 1st plane in the trade centre and not sure whether it was and accident or terrorism. The 2nd one answered the question.. He reveals that he had to evacuate the building he lives in because it was rumoured that one of the planes was going for his building. Jerry reveals how much he admires the British resolve for terrorism not just with the Irish situation but through World War 2. He is also not sure how the Government is going to respond and that the country will never be the same again after the worst terrorist incident in American history. Chris thanks him for taking the time to call and hopes the next time they talk is in better circumstances.

Chris reminds everyone that due to the tragedy in America then this is not a normal show. He relays details of George Bush’s speech and how emergency funding will be made available to the people of New York and Washington.

He also says that everything is quiet in New York and that the mayor has told people to get on with their lives. Joe says that the mood in New York is that of disbelief, shock and anger but he is not sure who to direct that anger too. Joe says that he was in his local pub and that he really wasn’t in the mood to stay there. He says that the only vehicles in the area were that of fire engines, ambulances and construction vehicles. Joe says that he will be back too work tomorrow but he is scared because his building is on the top floor of the skyscraper but life will not be back to normal for a long time. Chris thanks Joe for taking the time to talk.

Here’s Newsbeat, it’s 5:45

Conclusion: What can I say? Awesome show and its very sad that it took a tragedy to do it. Its a moot point but congrats to PJ Havey for winning the Mercury Music Prize but hey, who cares with the bigger picture. I have nothing more to say that hasn’t been said by others already except from a quote from a great philosepher:

‘Ashes to Ashes
Funk to Funky
We know Major Toms a junky
Shining down from heaven
Giving that all time low’
- David Bowie
