It’s December 1 which means the Christmas has begun. Yes, yes, we know there’s a recession on and it’s bleak and people have a right pain in the hoop about stuff so On The Record has decided to treat you all to some of the happy-happy-joy-joy Kool-Aid.

With that in mind, we have rounded up the BEST competition ever here. Oh yes. Thanks to our pals at RTÉ Digital, we have a totally swell Roberts MP43 Micro System to give away. Here’s a picture for you to drool over (we’re not giving you the iPod, though).

This bad boy will do everything you could possibly need to do except make the tea or write a blog post. Digital radio? Check. iPod dock? Check. Remote-control? Check. Station pre-sets? Check. Clock? Check. Six position equaliser and seperate bass and treble? Er, check. You get the idea. You want this.

The plug: we’ve got this prize to give away because RTÉ Digital have just gone live with their new-ish stations – RTÉ Choice, RTÉ Junior, RTÉ Gold, RTÉ 2XM, RTÉ Pulse and RTÉ Chill – and they want On The Record readers to feel the love. You can listen to these stations on a digital radio (if you have one and live in the Greater Dublin, Cork and Limerick areas) or online here. As we type, Stricken City’s smashing “Lost Art” is playing on the indie-alterntive 2XM station. Cool.

The competition: simply tell us in the comments field below who is your favourite RTE radio presenter and why. As simple as that. It’s like On The Record – the radio focus group. Entry is open to everyone (well, except directors of Fas) and the competition closes at 9.09am on Thursday. Judge’s decision is final – that’s me and not the dog from Wanderley Wagon, by the way. May the best lad/lass win.
