"115 Cardinals but only 1 supreme pontiff"
Every Tuesday, The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show delves into the Gift Grub archives to bring us a classic Gift we haven't heard in ages, as suggested by our listeners.
This week's pick is from Tom in Laois:
“Hi Ian, Stumbled across this one on my old iPod the other day and it had me in bits laughing. Could you play 'Pope Idol' for your Gift Grub Rewind. Love the show.”
The year was 2005 and the Vatican were looking for Pope John Paul II's replacement. Gift Grub transformed the selection process into a talent competition and there was plenty of white smoke.
If you have a Gift Grub that you would love to hear again, email your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org
