Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Research out today has stated that a third of pregnant women crave something bizarre. We had to ask on Facebook what your cravings were, and I wish we hadn’t. Now I’ve never been pregnant so was unable to contribute, but I do remember my mam telling me she used to crave pineapples soaked in lemonade, which seems pretty normal compared to what some of you craved!! From oranges sprinkled with oxo cubes to shortbread biscuits dipped in garlic sauce, I’m going to say it, that’s absolutely mingin’!!

In much less disturbing news out today, Nike has announced that they’ll be hopefully be releasing ‘Back to the Future’ style self-tying Power Laces in 2015!!!! It would seem that what Steven Spielberg thought 2015 would look like in ‘Back to the Future 2’ could become reality!!! All we really need now is the hooverboard.....oh and of course the time travelling Delorean.

Day 2 of our new competition to win tickets to Wembley continued today. If you hadn’t heard we’re giving you the chance to win tickets to the League Cup final against Man City on 2nd March. Seeing as you can no longer get tickets from the club, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this chance. All you need to do is send us a ‘Sticker Selfie’ showing your car registration and the new Wembley sticker in the car window. It’s pretty simple, if you hear your car registration read out this week then phone us up and answer 10 simple questions on SAFC. The listener with the most correct answers on Friday wins the tickets!! Jean Ryan was today’s contestant and she didn’t do well at all, she only managed 4 out of 10, which means David from yesterdays show is still in the lead with 8 correct answers!

We’ve got so much going on tomorrow; don’t forget to tune in for another chance to win tickets to Wembley, and it’s also Brits Day, when we’ll be playing songs by Brit award winners and nominees throughout the day.

Who wants to go to Wembley????

Here’s what you missed........

Monday is upon us yet again and research out today suggests that in the North East, workers struggle to deal with Monday mornings more than anywhere else in the UK. Apparently 56% of us woke up this morning feeling depressed at the thought of going to work. I must admit I was actually looking forward to work this morning; I couldn’t wait to tell you all about my Valentine’s Day mystery date!!! If you hadn’t heard, Simon has been dying to set me up on a date and Valentine’s Day seemed the perfect chance. ‘Date Danni’ kicked off on Friday and I was definitely not disappointed. Surprisingly Ricci from ‘Geordie Shore’ showed up at ‘Olivers Dental Studio’; he looked pretty dapper and smelt amazing. He was very much the perfect gentleman and took me to ‘D’Acqua’ in town; he even brought me some flowers. My dad wasn’t impressed when he found out I went on a date with a Geordie, and I doubt anything will materialise from our rendezvous, as he actually had another date planned on the night......with another girl!! EEEESSSHHHH

Simon was whisked away to Glasgow by his other half as a surprise, she spoils him something rotten!!! Although he did mention this morning he repaid her lavish gesture by taking her on a shopping trip.......to an outlet. Now I’m always one for a good bargain but when your partner spoils you with a trip away for the weekend and you want to repay her, you can do better than a trip to an outlet........and they say romance is dead.

We kicked off our new competition this morning and it’s definitely one you want to get involved in. Seeing as you can no longer get a League Cup Final ticket to Wembley from the club, you definitely don’t want to miss out on the chance of winning a pair of tickets with us! For one week only we’re giving a lucky listener the chance to win tickets to Wembley and it’s so simple to win. All you need to do is send us a ‘Sticker Selfie’ showing your car registration and the new Wembley sticker in the car window. If you hear you car registration read out after 8am this week then phone us up and answer 10 simple questions on SAFC. The listener with the most correct answers on Friday wins the tickets!! David Armstrong was today’s contestant and he answered an impressive 8 out of 10 questions correctly to kick off the competition!

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow and don’t forget to send in your selfie, you’ll be gutted if you missed out on those tickets!

Love is in the air

14th February 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Roses are red, Violets are blue, I’m sick of being single; I hope you are too.......

It’s finally here, the one day of the year when singletons around the world have love and happiness shoved in their faces. I suppose my Valentine’s Day isn’t going to be so lonely this year. Simon’s been looking forward to this day for as long as I’ve known him. It’s his chance to try and find me a date and I must admit he’s been trying his hardest. He’s sending me to Oliver’s Dental Studio today so they can sort my teeth out before I go on a dinner date with a mystery man this afternoon. It is a complete mystery, I only know that we’re going to D’acqua in town, I just don’t have a clue yet who I’m going with. Simon’s hoping that potential suitors flock to the dental studio to try and win a date with me!!! I’m praying that at least one person shows up or this could end up being the most embarrassing day of my life. Simon’s Valentine’s Day has started off with a bang, he’s been spoilt rotten. Not only has his missus booked them a nice romantic weekend away but she also popped in this morning and gave him some heart shaped Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and all he’s done is buy her some flowers!! Tut tut Mr Grundy!

On Facebook today we were asking you to complete the traditional Valentine’s Day poem “Roses are red.....” Joanne Stalker posted that the poem in her card off her husband read “Roses are red, belly button fluff is blue, I didn’t have enough for a heart, so here’s a smiley face for you” My favourite poem had to be from Lesley, “Roses are red, my name is Dave, this makes no sense, microwave” I suppose that’s just my sense of humour.

Today was also your last chance to win tickets to see ‘Stomp’ next week at the empire. All week Simon and I have been trying to play songs in the style of 'Stomp'. All we’ve actually done is make a load of racket with pots and pans; however you’ve still been able to guess correctly what song we’ve been playing! Today’s finale was New York New York by Frank Sinatra and I must admit it was our best effort by far.

I hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s Day and don’t forget to tune in on Monday to find out exactly how my date went. You'll also have a chance to win tickets to.............the League Cup final at Wembley!! Dun Dun Duuuunnnnn.

We're in the mood for some dancing......and a bit of romancing

13th February 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

The weather is still a hot topic of conversation this morning. For some strange reason my moron neighbours decided to put their bins out last night, in this weather!!!! Safe to say my car was covered in their rubbish and all I could hear all night was the sound of the bins being blown around the street. Apparently the wind is only going to be getting worse. We’ve been told to prepare for a months worth of rain in 2 days due to 3 storms that are on their way. There’s a satellite photo showing what the storms look like and I must admit it looks pretty scary. Instead of naming them storm 1, 2 and 3, Simon wanted you to come up with cool names for them like the Americans do with hurricanes. A lot of you are quite creative; I must admit my favourite was Pardew, Ashley, and Shearer, the reason being they’re all wet and full of wind!

I’ve been waiting all week to play the song we played this morning as part of our 'Stomp' competition. If you didn’t know, we’ve been giving you the chance this week to win a family pack of tickets to see ‘Stomp’ at the Sunderland Empire. All you have to do is simply guess what song Simon and I are trying to play in the style of stomp. Today’s song was my all time favourite 'Dolly Parton, 9-5', and I must admit it was pretty good. God knows what tomorrows song will be, seeing as it the last day of the competition it will have to be a show stopper!

We were joined in the studio today by Maureen Nolan! She’s currently starring as Mrs Johnstone in 'Blood Brothers' at the Empire this week and I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t seen it. We found out that Maureen and a few of her singing sisters are actually in the Guinness Book of Records as they’ve all played the same character in Blood Brothers at some point. Don’t panic if you missed our little chat with Maureen, you can catch it on our Listen Again page.

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow so be prepared for a jammed pack morning of love songs, romantic stories and no doubt Simon mocking me seeing as I’m single in Valentine’s Day.....although that could all change after dinner time????

Did anyone notice it had been snowing??

12th February 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

It's a good thing we have Twitter and Facebook these days or else no one would have a clue what the weather was like! Loads of you sent in twit pics of the snow outside and good job we had our ‘Wednesday Weather Reporter’ on this morning as well. Little Kian from Havelock Park did a great job informing everyone that it was cold and snowing, direct, and straight to the point. I love the snow, in fact it’s my favourite type of weather, it’s just a shame it doesn’t look like it’s staying around for long!

I can’t believe we had another 'Stomp' winner this morning. If you didn’t know, we’re giving you the chance to win a family pack of tickets to see ‘Stomp’ at the Sunderland Empire. All you have to do is simply guess what song Simon and I are trying to play with our pan lids, wooden spoons and cheese graters. I’m actually shocked that anyone managed to understand what we were trying to play this morning. Simon’s rubbish at this game; there’s me playing my little heart out and Simon’s just making noise! Surprisingly Joanne called in and correctly guessed we were playing ‘Walking on Sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves!! She must be a genius.

Simon let slip that we’ll be giving you the chance to win Wembley tickets soon!! He didn’t go into much detail, just that you’ll have to be listening on Monday to find out how, and I’m sure it has something to do with our new Sun FM Wembley car sticker........

In 2 days time I will be going on a Valentine’s Day dinner date with a complete stranger................. I’m very nervous to say the least, and to top it off I’m full of cold. So if you’d like to go on a date with a red nosed sneezing snotter then you’re in luck. I hope Simon gives me more details about it tomorrow; I don’t like being left in the dark!! Speaking of tomorrow, we’ll be joined by Maureen Nolan who’s currently starring in 'Blood Brothers' at the Sunderland Empire this week. I wonder if she’ll be in the mood for a bit of dancing??? Perhaps even a bit of romancing??
