Hello all,
Hope you all enjoyed yesterday’s Saint FM Breakfast Show with me Ben Kearns -and that you’ll be tuning in for another dose today.

Anyway, here’s what’s happening between half 7 and 10 this morning and although I do say so myself it’s another good show on the way.

At 25 past 8 and half 9 on today’s show I’ll be looking at our events Guide, detailing the next couple of days worth of local activities.

I’ll be speaking to John Whittingdale (MP for Maldon and Saint FM’s man at Westminster) at a quarter to 9, about what he’s been up to these past few days and his immediate plans ahead. For the uninitiated first-time listener, John is on the show every Thursday morning around this time.

Got some great music on the show today, some of it influenced by you. For starters, we have this morning’s Topical Tune subject:

All you have to do is read the story and come up with an idea for a song connected with it in some way, shape or form. One of your ideas will be played just before 10 today, so I wanna hear from you until then!

You can call the Saint FM studio at the Plume in Maldon, by ringing 01621 928 046,
Send an email:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

text me on 84555 (though it will cost you 25 P in addition to your regular charge and you’ll have to put the word ‘Saint’ and a space before the remainder of your message),
or you can leave your song suggestions here, on my blog of course.

I’d also like your suggestions for requests in general, as always you can use the same contact details for this and if I’ve got your song suggestions, I’ll happily play them.

I’m on-air in 30 minutes, so talk to you then…

Hi everyone,
It’s Ben here from Saint FM Breakfast. You can catch me today, as always, on 94.7 FM and on this website from 7 30 till 10 every Wednesday Thursday and Friday mornings.

The show this morning looks something like this: first off, Gordon from Maldon will be popping in to the studio to give us the latest on what’s going on in his life, in the first half hour.

At 25 past 8 and half 9 I’ll have a look at our events calendar, letting you know what’s happening in the Maldon and Burnham area over the next couple of days.

At a quarter to 9 it’ll be time for our weekly studio quiz, entitled Dead Or Alive-hoping you can tune in and play along.

As well as all this, I’m after your Topical Tune ideas:

Feel free to read the story in the link above and suggest a song connected to it! One of your tracks will be played just before 10 O’clock and the end of today’s show, so you’ve got 2 and half hours to get in touch with me to let me know your suggestions.

Either call the Saint FM Studio on 01621 928 046, email us:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

send a text through to 84555 (texts will cost you 25 P plus your standard network rate and you’ll need to put the word ‘saint’ before your message), or you can use this blog to let me know what you think I should play as my Topical Tune today.

Your general requests are always welcome too-and you can literally choose any song you like between 7 30 and 10.

Well I think that’s all-join me after half 7, live as always from the Plume in Maldon!

Hello everyone,
Hope you’re all doing well and looking forward to Breakfast, which starts at half 7 this morning, here on Saint FM, 94.7, with me Ben Kearns…

On today’s show I’ll have Gordon from Maldon in the first half hour, to chat about his past week and the next few days in his… shall we say, unique life.

I’ll let you know about the goings on in Maldon and Burnham in the events guide in the next couple of days, at about 25 past 8 and at half past 9 and between half 8 and 9.

‘Dead Or Alive’, our weekly studio quiz, is on at a quarter to 9 this morning as always-it’s essential for anyone remotely competitive.

Finally, I’ll have our Topical Tune on just before the end of the programme. All you need to do during the show is read this story and suggest any song:

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

So if you do have an idea for a song that relates to this story, then you know what to do-tell me what it is and I might play it at 10 to 10!

You can either give me a ring here at the Plume studios in Maldon this morning on 01621 928 046,
Send an email to me:

studio@saintfm.org.uk

Send a text through (to 84555, texts will cost you 25 P plus your standard Message Rate),
Or you can leave your suggestions here, on my Blog. Please don’t call, email or text before the show starts at 7 30, though you can start leaving your suggestions on the blog from here on in.

You’re also welcome to use the same contacting options to choose a favourite song generally-we’re an eclectic lot here at Saint, so it can literally be anything you like.

I’ll be on in about half an hour or so, so see you then.
