Carol choirs were wonderful
Happy NewYear and you are totally the last person I’m saying it to.
I am not making any new year resolutions as I never keep to them. However, I do want to get rid of my larger tummy that seems to have developed over the festive season.
I might take the drastic measure of attempting the dreaded juice diet at some point in January. I’m not sure how these extra love handles have grown - maybe something to do with lots of food and chocolate I devoured every day during the holidays?
All the Christmas decor is away for another year. It seems to take longer to get all the stuff back in boxes.
The winners of theYour Radio Christmas carol competition were St Ninian’s Primary School in Gourock with an incredible 44 per cent of the total votes cast of just under 1900 votes. In second place was Colgrain Primary in Helensburgh with 13 per cent after a late spurt of votes pulled them ahead of Lennox Primary in third with 11 per cent. An honourable fourth went to St Francis Primary with 10 per cent of the vote, with Gourock, Renton, Knoxland and St Michael’s bringing up the rear.
St Ninian’s wins £100 to be spent on musical equipment for the school and I’m popping over later this week to present them with the big prize and looking forward to meeting staff, teachers and the kids.
Thank you to all the wonderful children and the schools who took part in this year’s competition. It certainly added to the Christmas spirit.
What a great start to 2018 with two new voices onYour Radio this week. Chris Duke returns to our airwaves and will be with you on air Monday to Friday 7-9pm with a great mix of music and chat plus you can catch him on Sunday afternoons from 4-6pm.
It’s so good to have Chris back on the team and since his last appearance he’s become a dad for the third time. Congratulations from all atYour Radio on girl number three, little Erica. Well done to Mrs Duke who delivered her beautiful girl after 40 hours in labour.
I hope he’s got deep pockets.
We are also delighted to welcome an Eighties pop star to our team at the radio station.
‘I Dream to Sleep’was a huge hit single for H20 across the UK and earned the group an appearance onTop of the Pops in the early Eighties.The band’s former lead singer Ian Donaldson presents a new weekly show called Essential Eighties every Sunday from 6-7pm as part of our retro Sunday sound.
Ian is working on a new album and will be one of the many stars on stage at theYour Radio live gigs later this year.
We are super excited to announce that we are holding two nights of fab music on May 18 and 19 including Scotland’s Big Country, Hot Chocolate, Boney M, top tribute band Abba Gold and the iconic Sister Sledge and there’s more to be announced in the coming weeks.
