Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Tonight is the night Gus Poyet will switch on Sunderland’s Christmas lights and I can’t wait! Simon and I will be there as well to try and keep the crowds entertained. I’m actually pretty nervous for that bit, seeing as it’s the first time I’ll be doing it, and because Simon has kindly informed me of the gigantic screens which will be up showing my face......I hope they’re not in HD.

We had a little trial run last night in Grangetown. Simon and I were at the Thompson household switching on their Christmas tree lights. We even decorated the tree, although Simon put in minimal effort and just threw the beads on instead of draping them in an orderly fashion! Sarah and the Thompson family were absolutely lovely! They were very welcoming and even put on a little buffet for the Sun FM team. I say ‘team’ because not only were me and Simon there, but Liam Smedley hosted his Drivetime show live from their sitting room, and Katie McClements joined us as well to do the news! It was the first time Sun FM have ever broadcast from a listeners home, and we’re definitely up for doing it again. A big Thank You to the Thompsons for being such lovely hosts, and an even bigger thank you to Jack the Jack Russell and Fudge the Parrot for not making too much noise!

Seeing as the celebrity sneezer was guessed correctly yesterday we managed to find a new sneezer for this morning’s round. Sherrie called in today with a very specific question “Does he do magic?” We said NO; therefore she guessed that it was Paul Daniels...........who happens to be one of the most famous magicians known to man. I’ll make a suggestion; when you call in with a question, you might want to have a back up celebrity in mind??

I hope to see you all at the Civic Centre tonight for the Christmas switch on, and the fireworks. Wrap up’s going to be freezing!
