What makes you PROUD of Sunderland?

21st October 2013

Simon Grundy in the morning                                                                              

Here’s what you missed........

What a busy day!

First off, we caught up with our #FollowFriday victim @DebsieJay. True to her word Deb out-tweeted our previous victim by tweeting 180 times over the weekend! She thoroughly enjoyed her challenge and kept us entertained. By the sounds of it she’s even hatched a cunning plan with our own Sam Proffitt from the travel centre, to exact revenge on Mr Grundy.

We launched our new competition today ‘Celebrity Sneeze’. Basically, every morning just after 8am we want you to phone in with a question about our mysterious celebrity sneezer and we can only answer Yes or No. It kicked off with a bang. George from Washington (unfortunately not George Washington) asked a good question, “Is it a singer?” to which we answered No. He then went on to guess the celeb and decided on James Blunt.................We gave him another chance, reminding him that it’s not a singer. So he guessed at James Arthur!!! George, George, George, the rules of the game aren’t difficult.....But just so everyone else knows for future guesses, IT’S NOT A SINGER.

Also today we’ve been playing tunes from 1992, due to the fact that Sunderland is celebrating its 21st birthday this year, as it was granted city status 21 years ago. As part of this celebration, we’re asking anyone who was born in 1992 and is therefore celebrating their own 21st birthday at some point this year, to get in touch with Sun FM and let us know, as you could be invited to a special event at the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens on Tuesday 29th October, and receive a special gift.

We’ve also launched our own campaign 'Proud of Sunderland' where we’ve compiled a list of 21 reasons why you should be proud of our lovely city. As part of this campaign we were asking on Facebook “What makes you proud of Sunderland?” This is where my rant begins as some miseries decided to use it as a forum to complain about the football! That wasn’t what we asked, and in the words of Tony on Facebook be proud of your city, don't knock it, rebuild it!! Thank you to all those people who actually gave us some great reasons, such as the beautiful coastline, the friendly people and the concerts at the stadium.

Tune in tomorrow at the same time to listen to the only station that lives and loves Sunderland.
