Hello guys,
Hope everything’s been going all write with you and you’re ready for another show, starting in just half an hour.

I’ll be on today (as usual) from half 7 till 10, on this website (saintfm.co.uk) and on 94.7 FM.

Today’s show will include, amongst other things, details of some fourth coming events (at half 8 and half 9) coming up in the next couple of days.

At about a quarter to 9, I’ll talk to John Whittingdale (MP for Maldon and Saint FM’s man at Westminster) about what’s been happening during his week.

Along with all this, I’ll have today’s Topical Tune around 10 to 10, but as always I’ll need your suggestions throughout:

So have you got any songs? If you have, you can get them in to me. Call me at our Maldon studios, on 01621 928 046, send me an email to:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

text me (the number is 84555, texts will cost 25 P plus your standard charge and you’ll need to type the word ‘Saint’ then a space before your message),
or you can leave any suggestions you have here on this blog.

You’re welcome to choose a general request as always-and you do that using the same ways of contacting me.

Well I’ll be on in half an hour, so talk then!

Hello everyone,
Hope you all had a great weekend/beginning of the week and you’re gonna tune in this morning between half 7 and 10, to the Breakfast Show with me Ben Kearns, here at Saint FM.

On the programme this morning I’ll have Gordon from Maldon in at about quarter to 8, for his usual weekly chat-and as regular listeners have come to expect, it’ll be thoroughly interesting!

I’ll be talking about a selection of local events happening in the next couple of days at 25 past 8 and again at 9 30, especially for anyone with some time to spare, either today or tomorrow.

I’ll be doing Dead Or Alive (our studio quiz) after half 8 this morning, where you have to guess the celebrity (and of course whether they’re dead or alive) with the aid of a few clues…

As well as all this, I’ve got a topical tune subject:

http://web.orange.co.uk/article/quirkies/Notorious_prison_turns_posh_hotel

It’s worth mentioning that the Topical Tune is now on 4 mornings a week, with Kyla on Monday and Tuesday and with me every Wednesday and Thursday. If you’re a regular listener to the show, you know the score-get in touch with song suggestions connected to this story. The one I like most will be played just before the end of the show, so you’ve got just over 2 and a half hours to get them in to me.

There are 4 ways to do it-either call me (on 01621 928 046), email:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

or send a text in (to 84555). Texts will of course cost you 25 P, plus your standard network charge.
You can also leave any suggestion on my blog, from now on (don’t phone, email or text though, until I start at half 7).

As always I’d love to hear your general requests too-if you’ve got any that is (I’ll play anything). The same contact details will apply-and I’ll be coming live from the Plume School studios in Maldon in 30 minutes.

Hello,

I hope everything’s good with you this morning and you’re up, ready to listen to my show, starting at half 7, here on Maldon and Burnham’s true local radio station, Saint FM.

On the programme today I will be having a look at some events in the Maldon and Burnham area, over the next couple of days,

At a quarter to 9, I’ll hopefully get hold of John Whittingdale (local MP for Maldon and Saint FM’s man at Westminster) to catch up with him, as I normally do every Thursday morning at that time.

On Monday and Tuesday next week, we’ve got a new girl starting on Breakfast-her name is Kyla Player-and you may know her already for presenting the Retro Radio Show on Wednesday afternoon. I say this because Kyla will be joining me to get some practice for the early mornings in-and to talk about her new show.

and I’d very much like your song suggestions for a potential Topical Tune. Here’s today’s story for you to read and consider:

http://web.orange.co.uk/article/quirkies/Ghost_caught_on_CCTV_camera

So if you do have a song suggestion over the duration of my programme, let me know what it is and it might be the song I play at around 10 to 10, just before I finish.

So you can call me during the programme on 01621 928 046,
Send an email:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

text in to 84555 (texts will set you back 25 P in addition to your regular network rate and you’ll need to put the word ‘Saint’ and a space in front of your text), or you can let me know any potential ideas right here, on this blog.
You can also use the same methods of contacting me, if you have a general request to make, unrelated to the Topical Tune.

Well I think that’s all for now-I’ll be on from half 7, on 94.7 FM around Maldon and Burnham and on this website around the world, so be sure to tune in to me!

Morning everyone,
Hope you’re doing okay today and you’re gonna make a point of tuning in to me, Ben Kearns, for my Breakfast show, from half 7, only on Saint FM.

On today’s programme, I’ll have Gordon from Maldon in on the first half hour, talking about his activities over the previous week.

At 25 past 8 and half past 9, I’ll be telling you what’s happening in the Maldon and Burnham area over the next couple of days.

Our studio quiz, Dead Or Alive, will be coming as usual, at about quarter to 9, feel free to get involved if you like.

Also, throughout the show, I’ll be asking you for Topical Tune suggestions:

http://web.orange.co.uk/article/quirkies/Designer_invents_zip-up_tie

You’ve got 2 hours 40 minutes to read the story and get your song ideas to me, one of them will be aired, just before the end of the show.

To get in contact, you can call us in the Maldon studios (at the Plume School) on 01621 928 046

Email:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

text in to 84555 (it will set you back 25 P plus your standard charge to do that and if you don’t type the word ‘saint’ and a space at the beginning of your message, it won’t reach me here in the studio), or you can leave any suggestions on my blog.

Love to hear from you if you have an idea for a potential Topical Tune; I also welcome your calls, emails, texts or blog posts if you have a request to make this morning.

Think that’s everything for the time being, I’m on from half 7 anyway, so if I’ve forgotten anything I’ll mention it then.

Breaky With A Twist!

Hey people,
First off, let me be the first to say happy Anti-Valentine’s Day!

It’s Ben here from Breakfast, with details of today’s show, with a distinctly unromantic feel to it. As some people get ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I thought we’d turn it on it’s head so to speak and do an Anti-Valentine’s show. So if you have any unromantic messages for anyone, please use the contact details below (though it is a family show, remember).

As always on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday though, I’ll be here from half 7-10.

On today’s programme, I’ll be looking at what’s going on in the Maldon and Burnham area, over the next couple of days, so if you do have some spare moments, be sure to pay extra attention to your listening devises at 8 25 and half 9.

At quarter to 9 (or there abouts) John Whittingdale (MP for Maldon and Saint FM’s man at Westminster) will be on talking local and national politics.

Also, I’ve got another Topical Tune story:

http://web.orange.co.uk/article/quirkies/Homeless_mans_tomb_with_a_view

As always, I’d love your song suggestions throughout the show, one of which will be played just before I finish this morning, at around 10 to 10.

You can call the studio with your ideas for songs related to the story on 01621 928 046, email:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

text us on 84555 (remembering it will cost you 25 P plus your standard network charge and you’ll need the word ‘Saint’ and a space before you type the rest of your message),
or you can leave any suggestions here, on my blog.

Think that’s all you need to know for now-give me a listen if you can, I’m on in half an hour’s time!
