I can't believe our radio show on 2fm is a year old already.

It's gone so fast but it just doesn't really feel like work. I know that sounds cliched but it's a laugh being on air with Nicky every day.

We had a party at The Bridge pub in Ballsbridge on Tuesday to celebrate.

You're always a bit nervous with something like that, especially with a live audience but I thought it went great - there was a brilliant atmosphere and the guests were fantastic, it was a lot of fun.

Jamie Heaslip and Rob Kearney own the pub and they had a chat with us and there was music from the Original Rude Boys.

There have been so many highlights over the past year - I loved meeting Paolo Nutini.

He came in to do a live session with us and a chat - it was lovely to sit in a room with him singing with just two other people. He's such a lovely bloke.

Another highlight was around Valentine's Day when Louis Walsh and Hometown arrived into the studio with lots of roses and we played their new single.

That's one thing about this show, there are always surprises and fun things happening. I'm really loving it.

I love having Friday nights off

I still present my dance music show, the Electric Disco, on Saturday nights on 2fm but it has been brilliant to have Friday nights off over the past year.

If my girlfriend Kelly and I decide to go out we usually go to gigs in the Button Factory - we went to see John Talabot (right) there recently and that was an amazing gig.

We often end up going to the club Mother as well, because they play really good house music.

It's such a great spot and there's always a queue which is a good sign.

I listen to music all the time, it's my passion as well as my job and I love going somewhere like Mother where DJs play music that I don't know all night.

I've been DJing since I was 15 and one of my favourite things to do is spend hours looking for new music online.

Kelly likes the exact same music as I do and we often share music or gift each other albums on iTunes that we think the other might like.

 

I'm so chuffed to be up for a Gala award

I’ve been nominated for Entertainment Personality of the Year at the Gay and Lesbian Awards (Gala) which are on tonight.

They’re on in the Shelbourne and there are four of us in the category and the winner is chosen by a public vote.

I’m up against Markus Feehily who has won it before, Paul Ryder and Choral Confusion who are an LGBT choir from Cork.

Because me and Markus are up against each other, Nicky had to give us both a vote.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the awards tonight but I have my fingers crossed.

Either way, it’s amazing to be nominated – I’m so chuffed to get a mention.
