Hope things have been going well these last few days and you’ll be tuned in to Saint FM this morning from 7 30 till 10, because I’ll be doing my usual Breakfast Show!
Got a lot happening this morning, so should be compelling listening (touchwood). First of all, Gordon From Maldon will be making a triumphant return to the airwaves in the first half hour of the show (at about quarter to 8) to talk about what he’s been up to in the past week.
At 25 past 8 and half 9 I’ll be looking at what’s going on in the Maldon and Burnham area over the next couple of days, courtesy of our Events Diary.
It’ll be time for our Studio Quiz entitled Dead Or Alive at a quarter to 9 this morning as usual on a Wednesday.
And last but by no means least, I’d love your Topical Tune suggestions:
You know the drill if you regularly listen-all you need to do is read the story above and suggest a song related to it. I’ll be playing one of your suggestions as my second to last track of the morning, so you’ve got until about 20 to 10 to come up with a suggestion.
Either call the Saint FM studios at the Plume, Maldon, on 01621 928 046,
send me a text on 84555 (it’ll cost you 25 P in addition to your standard rate and you’ll need to type the word ‘saint’ and a space before you write the rest of your message) or you have the option of adding your Topical Tune ideas on this blog, as a comment.
Of course you’re welcome to choose a general request unrelated to the Topical Tune if you like, if I have it I will play it during the programme, if you contact me using the methods listed earlier on.
Well I’m off to make the last minute arrangements for the show, I’m on in half an hour, so chat then…
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!
