Its al­ready time to be think­ing of fire­works fun

Midweek Visiter - - Sandground­er Showcase -

ICAN’T quite be­lieve we’re into the last full week of Septem­ber. Time is well and truly fly­ing by. There’s one word you’ll be hear­ing a lot in South­port over the com­ing days and that word is fire­works!!

I love this time of year, when the Bri­tish Mu­si­cal Fire­work Cham­pi­onships take place.

We had great fun last week, giv­ing away a fam­ily pass a day as part of our com­pe­ti­tion ‘Snap, Crackle Or Not’ on the Break­fast Show with Brent.

We asked a dif­fer­ent lis­tener each day to work out if the fire­work name we were de­scrib­ing was a real fire­work or not.

For in­stance ‘A Cather­ine Wheel’ is, where as a ‘Ge­orge In The Box’ isn’t.

It was great fun and we had a good laugh with our lis­ten­ers. Well done to all our win­ners. Af­ter all that ex­cite­ment, Brent is hav­ing a well de­served cou­ple of weeks off from the Break­fast Show.

He’s off to find some warm sun­shine, so the Break­fast Show is in the very ca­pa­ble hands of Dave Tur­ley for the next few weeks.

Dave is with you ev­ery Satur­day from 10am and over the years has never been a stranger to ra­dio in South­port.

Just watch out for the odd joke too!

Paul Jor­dan was back on our tele­vi­sion screens the other night too, with an old episode of Top Of The Pops from 1986.

He hasn’t changed much .... well...apart from his hair colour (sorry Paul).

You can hear Paul, ev­ery Sun­day from 1pm for his ‘Solid Gold Sun­day’ pro­gramme with a great se­lec­tion of mu­sic from the 60s, 70s and the 80s.

It was a plea­sure to be joined on-air by a good friend of the ra­dio sta­tion, Yvonne Burns, who is the cen­tre man­ager at Way­far­ers Ar­cade.

It’s great to see lots of new busi­nesses open­ing in the ar­cade and next week they cel­e­brate their 120th birth­day. When we started out, nearly three years ago, we had the plea­sure of hav­ing Way­far­ers as our tem­po­rary home. It’s a mag­nif­i­cent place and a true jewel in South­port’s crown. Don’t for­get you can join me Week­days from 4pm and you can lis­ten to us on your DAB+ dig­i­tal ra­dio, mo­bile apps, smart de­vice speak­ers and on­line via www. sand­grounder­ra­
