Catch Sun FM on TV!!!

6th June 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

I think the entire Breakfast team will agree with me when I say that today has been an experience. Cramlington comic Ross Noble is currently filming his new show ‘Freewheeling’ where he tours the country on his bright orange motorbike. The main thing that makes this programme unique is that he relies on his Twitter followers to give him ideas of where to go and what to film. When we found out he was filming in Sunderland we asked how we could help out and invited him to join us for a little chat. He brought the entire TV crew in from ‘Dave’ and I couldn’t believe how many cameras, microphones and actual people he has following him about. He’s in Sunderland because a fan of his contacted him to say he was due in court this morning and Ross decided to take it upon himself to come along and try to help him out. We had to refer to the lad as ‘He who must not be named’, but don’t worry it wasn’t Lord Voldemort. Ross wanted to try and rally as many Mackems as possible to get themselves down to the court and try to make it out as though it was the biggest crime of the century!!! I honestly can’t wait to see what gets aired on the show and I can’t believe Sun FM’s going to be on tele.......I actually made an effort for work this morning and put make up on! If you missed our little chat with Ross don’t panic you can catch it again on our Listen Again page, and believe me it’s definitely worth a listen; we had people tweeting in to say they weren’t planning on leaving the car until the interview had ended because they didn’t want to miss anything!

I hope you all have a fab weekend, and I hope ‘He who must not be named’ got on OK in court......Tune in on Monday for another round of ‘Time for Tea’ and we’ll also be kicking off competitions to win a 32” TV and tickets to Ladies Day at the races.

Where do babies come from?

5th June 2014

Here’s what you missed........

I’m not a parent so I don’t have to worry about being asked questions from my kids such as “Where do babies come from?” although my niece is very curious about everything and actually asked my mam that very same question, to which she answered, “Ask your mammy.” An article out this week has listed some of the questions kids have asked their parents and to help if it happens to you, they’ve even included the best answers to use. One little 4 year old even asked NASA “How many stars are there in the sky?” and NASA kindly replied “Too many to count.” We wanted to know of any questions you’ve been asked which caught you off guard and how you managed to answer them. On Facebook, Nita Tennant was once asked “If you put contact lenses inside out can you see your brain?” and after ‘ladies essentials’ were advertised on TV, Julie Ramsey was asked by her son “Why do women need to wear nappies?” OMG!!

Not wanting to blow our own trumpet but this morning’s been such a hoot I haven’t stopped laughing. For round 4 of ‘Time for Tea’ we called a nightclub in L.A and asked them if any of their cocktails had a tea bag in..........the poor lad on the end of the phone didn’t have a clue what was going on which only made it funnier.

And finally, we had American duo MKTO on the show this morning, talking to us about their new single ‘Classic’. They thought Simon was hilarious when he tried to talk ‘street’!!! I love it when he thinks he’s ‘down with the kids’. If you didn’t catch it, get to our Listen Again page and give it a whirl.

Who is the sexiest woman of all time?

4th June 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Important news for all you lads this morning, FHM magazine have released their top 100 sexiest women of all time list. Now it’s not your usual sexiest women list, this is apparently the sexiest women OF ALL TIME!! I would never have expected to see Rachel Stevens, former S Club 7 member top the poll, she beat off people like Kelly Brook and Jennifer Aniston. I would have thought that the list would’ve included people like Marilyn Monroe or Heidi Klum and a lot of you, men and women, got in touch to tell us who you think should’ve been number 1. Thanks for the serious suggestions like Sandra Bullock and Rihanna, although there were a few who suggested Susan Boyle and even me!!! Believe me there’s not enough air brushing in the world that could make me number 1.

I’m really looking forward to tomorrows show because we’ll be joined by ‘MKTO’. “Who’s that?” I hear you ask, well they’re an American duo who have done really well in America and Australia and they’re hoping to do the same in the UK. We’ve played their new single ‘Classic’ a few times and it’s really catchy! They’re only young lads, and very good looking lads too!!

Tune in tomorrow when we kick off round 3 of ‘Time for Tea’, our hilarious new competition giving you the chance to bag yourself a one of a kind Sun FM mug! Let’s give Los Angeles a ring shall we???

Movie Madness

3rd June 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

You all know how much I love 'Star Wars', so you wouldn’t have been surprised when I was very happy that 'Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back' has been voted the greatest film of all time by Empire magazine. They released a top ten list which had been voted for online, (which I didn’t participate in by the way). I wasn’t surprised to see ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ or ‘Jaws’ in the top ten, however there were a couple of films I thought would definitely have made the top 10 such as ‘Saving Private Ryan’.

Another film which wasn’t included in the top 10 was ‘Back to the Future’, an 80’s classic, but don’t despair, I’ve heard even better news regarding this amazing film!! Basically there’s a company in London called ‘Secret Cinema’; they turn an abandoned building into a well known film set, act out parts of the film and then you watch the film after. The reason it’s a secret is because you never know what film it’s going to be. Well the cat’s out the bag this time as apparently the next project is to build the town of Hill Valley, giving participants the chance to ‘visit’ 1955, 1985 and 2015. Not only does that sound amazing but after you’ve watched the film there’s also going to a be an ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ after party!!!!!! I’ve been lucky enough to go to one of these events in the past when they re-enacted ‘The Shawshank Redemption’; it took place in a prison and we were all dressed in 1920’s prison was amazing!!

In other news, we’ll be calling Australia in the morning just to have a little chat about tea…………don’t miss it, it’s bound to be hilarious and you can also win a Sun FM mug, it’s so simple.

Time for Tea

2nd June 2014

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

Mr Grundy returned from his holidays today and we kicked off what can only be described as a hilarious new competition giving you the chance to bag yourself a brand new Sun FM mug. It’s called ‘Time for Tea’ and it’s so simple to win. Every morning we’ll be phoning a place anywhere in the world that sells tea and all you have to do to win is correctly guess the sex of the person who answers the phone. Now that doesn’t actually sound funny but as you know Simon’s always up for a little chat and that’s exactly what he did. He decided to call the Hilton hotel in Rome and asked what type of tea they sell, the poor woman on the end of the phone didn’t have a clue what was going on which just made it funnier. For some reason though Simon kept asking her if she’d put the tea bag in and he kept giggling.........Anyway well done to Karen, your mug will be in the post, although it might not get there in one piece.

We had even more laughter on this morning’s show when we asked you to tell us of any ‘blonde moments’ you’ve ever had. We wanted to know because research out today has apparently proved that hair colour has no impact on intelligence or personality. Our favourite came through via text where a gentleman who wished to be nameless kindly told us that his partner woke up one morning and shouted, “Shut that garden gate, it’ll stop the birds getting in.......” Bless, she must have been thinking of all those flightless birds that hang around our gardens.

Tune in tomorrow for round 2 of ‘Time for Tea’, I love any excuse for a giggle.
