Dad let go from Today FM

Today FM bosses have axed Ian Noctor’s Sunday night Dad Rock show. Dad Rock features classic rock tunes from the ’60s and ’70s but station bosses are said to be unhappy with the size of the niche audience it attracts, and will launch an indie rock show in its place to regain listeners lost to pirate stations like Phantom FM and XFM.

Dad Rock has been on air since 1999. Ian Noctor has been presenting the show for just over a year, Marty Miller presented it previously. Ian Noctor is said to be so devastated with the news that he opted out of presenting the final two shows, the first of which was last Sunday. Cliff Walker has taken Ian’s place and will present a special finale this Sunday evening.
