We've got that Friday Feeling!

17th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Today was your last chance to win a grand. The £1000 Minute ended its run this morning so thankfully that means mine and Simons faces will now be removed from the back of the buses!! I can only apologise that you’ve had to see us travelling around Wearside for the last 2 months. We were hoping that we’d end the competition on a high and give a listener on Wearside a kick start to their weekend but sadly Jason only managed to get 6 out of 10 questions correct, which doesn’t mean he walks away with £600, it just means he’s rubbish and walks away with nothing.

Speaking of weekends, Simon and I have both got an action packed weekend planned, separately of course. Simon’s heading off for another adventure in his trusty campervan and I’m off to York for a Hen Party. This will be the 5th hen party I’ve been to this year!!!! Loads of you got in touch on Facebook and Twitter to tell us your weekend plans in one word, and ONE WORD ONLY!!! From ‘Christening’s’ to ‘Holiday’s’ you all seem to be looking forward to clocking off at 5pm......apart from those who are actually working all weekend!

If you missed our little chat with Martin Kemp and John Keeble from Spandau Ballet this morning don’t panic, you can catch it on our Listen Again page. The lads were lovely and chatted about their new single, album, tour and documentary!

Don’t forget to tune in on Monday when we’ll be kicking off our Ed Sheeran competition and giving you the chance to win tickets to meet and greet the amazing singer when he comes to the North East next Saturday!!

Whatever your plans are for the weekend enjoy every minute.

Blog Action Day 2014

16th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Today is Blog Action Day, the day when bloggers of the world unite to blog about the same topic in order to spark a global discussion. This will be the second time I’ve jumped on this bandwagon and I must admit my blog last year was pretty successful so I thought I’d give it another go. The theme for all blogs this year should be based on Inequality. Considering I blog about a radio breakfast show I thought I’d try and somehow relate inequality to music, so here goes.....

Whenever anyone says the word inequality, people automatically think of inequality between men and women and how in some circumstances women might be lower in the food chain. However one aspect where this can be turned round is in Music. I presume you’ve all heard of a little American singer called Beyonce who's actually realeased songs about inequality such as "If I were a boy" and "Run the World". Well she has completely upturned inequality between the sexes. She topped the Forbes Celebrity 100 list this year and not only through musical achievements, because she’s also built a small business empire. She earns millions through endorsements and has her own fragrances and clothing company. I think the most ironic thing about this is the fact that her hubby Jay Z came in at number 6.......I wonder who wears the trousers in that relationship. Joking aside, it shows how inequality between the sexes is slowly changing and the divide between men and women is decreasing, especially in music.

Spread the word.......Blog Action Day 2014. And while you’re at it, spread the word that Spandau Ballet will be on the show tomorrow!!! No doubt Simon will ask uncomfortable questions about their feuds because as always, he likes to address the elephant in the room!

You're NOT Fired!

15th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

We heard today how Michael McIntyre walked off stage in Darlington on Monday night because a woman on the front row kept using her mobile phone. It prompted us to ask the question, what have you walked out on recently and why? The best and most honest response was from Beth on Facebook who told us she walked out of a meeting with senior bosses because she didn’t believe the rubbish coming out of their mouths!!! Honesty is the best policy Beth.

Did anyone watch The Apprentice last night? I tuned in and was over the moon that Sunderland’s very own Katie Bulmer – Cooke made it through to the second task. She did really well last night; she got stuck into selling and came up with a great slogan. I loved hearing a Mackem accent on the tele and thought it was hilarious when she suggested that the team name should be ‘Grafters’, especially when one of the snobs piped up and thought it wasn’t refined enough! Good Luck Katie, everyone on Wearside has their fingers crossed for you!!

If you were tuning in this morning hoping to hear Kerri-anne from Teesside talking about X Factor then you would’ve been disappointed. Unfortunately Kerri-anne was feeling under the weather today and has lost her voice so she couldn’t pop in for a chat. Hopefully she’ll be in next week to tell us how she feels about not being picked for the X Factor live shows and who she wants to win.

What would you do with £111,000,000?

14th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

I’m not sure about you, but I’m definitely buying a lucky dip for tonight’s Euromillions draw. If you’re sat at your desk right now bored out of your brains just take a minute to imagine what you would do if you won an unbelievable £111,000,000!!!! First of all I would make all my family and friends millionaires; I could give each of them a million and still be left with £100 million for myself! It would be impossible to spend it all and a few of you on Twitter and Facebook said you’d give half of it to charity which is definitely an honourable way to spend it. If by any chance I’m not in tomorrow morning it’s because I’m a multi millionaire and my best friend is now Richard Branson!

If you don't win the Euromillions, you’ve still got a chance to win a grand, but there's only 3 chances left to win! The thousand pound minute ends this Friday and Simon really wants to make another Wearsider a thousand pounds richer. Answer 10 questions correctly in 60 seconds and the cash is yours. We’ve already had 2 winners this time round and just to remind everyone, they were both women.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow when we’ll be joined by Kerri-anne from Teesside who surprisingly wasn’t picked by Cheryl to go through to the live shows on the X Factor. No doubt Simon will be asking her how she feels about the girls who were picked and we definitely want to know if she’s watching it and who she’s voting for.

What does your mole say about you?

13th October 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Well I don’t know about you, but I managed to have a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend so I was feeling fresh as a daisy this morning. So fresh in fact that I honed in on my psychic abilities and found that I can tell you your future depending on if you have any moles, (not the moles in your garden by the way). Actually that’s a little fib; I’m not really psychic I just found an article out today based on Chinese astrology. Apparently the position of a mole anywhere on your body can give a useful insight not only on your future but on your personality, state of mind and health. Simon was a little sceptical at first however after telling him what his mole means there was no way he could deny its authenticity. Simon’s mole is on his chin and it means that he is stubborn..........having a mole on your chin can also represent the need for change or travel and he’s always getting about in his little camper van! I have a mole on my stomach and apparently, the closer it is to your navel depends on how successful you’ll be, and mine is very close, so fingers crossed this success shows it’s face soon. I wonder if it’ll help if I buy a Euromillions ticket for tomorrow?? The list has an explanation for anywhere on the body so if you’re intrigued to know how your future will pan out, get yourself to our Facebook page and check out our post.

Breaking showbiz news today; Spandau Ballet have announced a UK tour kicking off in March next year and as we told you last week, the lads will be chatting to Simon and I this Friday so we’ll try and get as much gossip out of them as possible!

Enjoy your Monday as best you can!
