“A 20-year friendship where he always showed up for me… I hope I did for him too…a true friend, a confidant, a believer and a radio anorak of the highest order. Many many nights in Redbox and Pod and Spirit and Dandelion, pretty much anywhere I was, he was. He was my first spinner on Freaks on FM104, a total pro. He was a Pulse FM original ( Monday nights he would drop in with Burgers), one hell of a great lad. He came to see me at Pete Tong in Nov I’m so glad now as it was touch and go… I know he loved being in 2FM over the last prob 18 years, his spiritual home.

He added: “He would be so proud of the outpouring since yesterday. He wouldn’t believe how popular he is, he was so unassuming. I will miss him and our chats. Al the Gardner. Love ya Al.” 

RTÉ’s Director of Content Jim Jennings added: “Alan was well known and respected throughout RTÉ and was a talented member of our Radio family for almost 20 years.

“We will miss him dearly, and we send our thoughts and condolences to his family and to his many friends both inside and outside RTÉ.”
