Buble, Running, Wrapping and Work

5th December 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s Friday!!!!! That means only one thing........it’s time to party! Friday is always the most relaxed day of the week at work. Even though everyone’s still got the same amount of work to do as usual, there’s always something in the air that makes everyone happier. Simon was very happy today as his weekend consists of seeing Michael Buble in concert which he’s been looking forward to since he bought the tickets. He is a HUGE fan and tries to use the excuse that it was his girlfriend who really wanted to go so he bought the tickets for her, which is a massive lie, he just didn’t want to go to a Michael Buble concert on his own and look like a weirdo. I wonder if he’s finished making his banner???

Safe to say, Simon’s one word to describe his weekend was ‘BUBLE’. Mine on the other hand is ‘RUNNING’. That’s right, I’m dusting off my trainers and taking part in the Chocolate Santa Run this Sunday in Mowbray Park. It sounds loads of fun; not only do you get given a Santa suit to wear throughout the race, but there are chocolate challenges and treats along the way. It’s only 1.5 miles and I’m raising money for the NSPCC Sunderland so I’m really looking forward to it! Loads of you on Facebook got in touch to tell us your one word weekends which range from work, decorating, reunion and panto.

It’s been a very busy morning considering we’ve gave away cinema tickets, tanks of fuel, wrapping paper (that’s right someone won some wrapping paper), and a pair of season cards that will be making their way to Scott from Downhill who successfully managed to answer all 6 footy questions correctly.

Whatever your weekend plans are, I hope you have a festive fantastic time.

It's a Cracker!

2nd December 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It’s the 2nd December and I’ve finally started on my Christmas shopping. Last night I managed to get quite a lot in even though I looked like a pack horse carrying it all round the town. Not wanting to blow my own trumpet but I buy the best presents and I’ll definitely be given the Favourite Auntie title on Christmas day when my niece, nephew and goddaughter see what I’ve bought them. I even managed to buy my Christmas tree although I was too tired to put it up when I got home so that’s on my ‘To Do’ list for today.

Day 2 of 'What’s In Danni’s Mouth?' and Stevie from Southwick was over the moon to win a cracker. It might sound like a strange prize but it’s nothing compared to what some of our listeners have won in the past. A few of you got in touch to tell us the strangest prize you’ve ever won. Catherine once won a Cabbage thanks to Sun FM and Mandi once won a year’s supply of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, I just hope she wasn’t allergic to nuts.

And finally in the showbiz news, Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in Frozen has announced that a sequel is in the works, although it hasn’t been confirmed by Disney. Simon then went and played his favourite song from the film......’Let One Go’.....that’s right, not ‘Let It Go’, but ‘Let One Go’. I wonder if you can guess what it was about. It doesn’t matter how old you are but the sound of flatulence is always funny.

24 sleeps to go.....

1st December 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW STAR WARS TRAILER????? Oh my god oh my god. I was so excited that I even tweeted the official Star Wars account on Friday to thank them for kick-starting my weekend. I don’t care what people think about it but I thought it was amazing and when the music kicked in I actually got goosebumps!!

But that was Friday, today is the start of a whole new week and it’s also the start of a whole new month!! I can’t believe it’s December already. That means that it is now socially acceptable to wear Christmas Jumpers, sing Christmas songs, watch Christmas films and put up Christmas decorations, without being judged or mocked. With this in mind we started playing Christmas songs and wanted you to tell us what the first one should be. It’s good to see that The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl ‘Fairytale of New York’ is still high on people’s favourite festive list, although the winner ended up being Shakin’ Stevens.

As it is the 1st that means there’s only 24 sleeps until Santa makes an appearance......so prepare yourselves for our Sleeps till Santa jingle that we will be playing every morning until Christmas Day. It’s the type of jingle that kids absolutely love and adults absolutely loath, so enjoy!

Mr Busy & Little Miss Fun

25th November 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Simon got a bit emotional last night when he found his daughter’s collection of Mr Men books from when she was little. It made us think what Mr Men and Little Miss Characters Simon and I would be. I was tempted to give Simon the title of Mr Grumble or Mr Miserable but then he would’ve picked a mean one for me so instead I chose Mr Busy, which is pretty accurate; he’s constantly busy and has always got loads of work to do. Simon chose Little Miss Fun for me, probably because Little Miss Lazy wasn’t available. I am pretty fun to be around and I like to keep people entertained. Loads of you got in touch to tell us which character you would be, and of course the jokers out there got in touch as well.....strangely enough there are no characters called Mr Transvestite or Mr Recovering Alcoholic.

Day 2 of our Take That Winning Week where each day this week we’re giving you the chance to win Take That’s new album before it goes on sale. All you have to do is answer 3 Take That questions correctly out of 5 and the CD is yours. You then automatically get put into the draw on Friday to win tickets to see the lads when they come to the North East next year. Today’s winner was Michelle from Washington and she was over the moon.

And finally, I heard some AMAZING news last night.......................the new 'Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens' trailer is going to be released this Friday!! Excitement overload!!!

TAKE THAT WERE ON THE SHOW!!

24th November 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Today was Day 1 of our Take That Winning Week and not only were we giving you the chance to win Take That’s new album, but Simon and I actually interviewed Gary, Mark and Howard!!! Quite possibly the highlight of my career so far. At one point I actually thought “Oh my god, I’m talking to Gary Barlow, that’s actually Gary Barlow, and he said my name!” They were absolutely lovely and it’s odd that there are only 3 of them now, but they still sound as strong as ever. If you missed our little chat, then don’t panic, you can hear it on our Listen Again page, and I’m going to see if Simon can actually record it on a CD for me so I can keep it forever as evidence that I spoke to Gary, Mark and Howard.

As part of our Take That winning week, each day we’re giving you the chance to win Take That’s new album before it goes on sale. All you have to do is answer 3 Take That questions correctly out of 5 and the CD is yours. You then automatically get put into the draw on Friday to win tickets to see the lads when they come to the North East next year. Congratulations to our first winner of the week, Annie Brown and good luck for that draw on Friday.

And finally, if like me you haven’t started Christmas shopping because you haven’t got a clue what to buy people then fear not. I’ve found a new Secret Scan-ta app that allows you to type in the twitter handle of your friends and family and it automatically provides options for what presents you should buy. I typed in Simon’s name and it suggested I should buy him a Despicable Me 2 Fart Gun and a dressing gown which I know he’ll be over the moon with!! The app of course only works if your friends are on Twitter, if they’re not, then it’s back to the drawing board.
