Haha Rocker. I used to watch Zig and Zag in the afternoons on THE DEN with my kids years ago and Dustin was part of the show. He often mentioned Noggin Cabs and he used to do funny racing commentaries. I know somebody from De Noggin who was a Taxi driver and he was well known years ago for his funny racing commentaries in the pub so I was convinced I'd put 2 + 2 together and it was him.
I met his Sister one day and asked her in confidence if it was him and she said NOOOOOOOO way, but the family would have been told to keep it a secret wouldn't they.
Anyway, I can't mention names but I'd love to know if I was right. I bet somebody here knows but they're not going to say anything either are they? :mrgreen:

As a true nogginer I can honestly say I know who the voice behind Dustin the turkey is but alas I am bound to secrecy and cannot
reveal his name only to say he is not a true nogginer close but not a nogginer as such.

Ok, well that rules out who I was thinking of-ish, because there could still be a connection.

Well, I've had the hilarious honour of working with Dustin and his mad bunch for many years both in Ireland and abroad, we had many adventures too numerous to mention, every day with them was so funny and enjoyable, what was happening " off camera " was equally funny :lol: :lol:

Took a drive around Sallynoggin yesterday. Homelessness is on my mind and I noticed at least three decent houses boarded up and empty!!!

Who is fooling who??
We either have a problem and deal with it or we don't have a problem!!
Do the Council hope to sell off the houses??

Mind boggling with Peter mcVerry on the telly every night asking for help!
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

Opened my house up to a young homeless couple. Bit me on the arse big time!!
Not sorry, but showed me another side.
