Saturday 5 July 2008 - Saturday Breakfast Show

The Saturday Breakfast Show is a great way to start your weekend if you're looking to do something in the Brentwood and Billericay area - and beyond.

Listen out for those events and happenings in and around our district and quite often hear what they're about directly from the people who are involved.

Out and About with Phoenix FM is sponsored by Essex Farmers Markets and this week there was a Farmers Market, quite literally on our doorstep.

I had hoped to talk with some of the stall-holders whom I saw setting up their stalls from my seat in the studio but due to technical difficulties this didn't happen - maybe next time, which will be on the 9th of August at the Baytree Centre.

But I did purchase a few home made cakes from Becky of Angel Cakes which were delicious!


The studio guest this week was  Paul Skingley, who for the very first time was organising this coming weekends (12th and 13th) Blackmore 2008 Mid Summer Music Festival.

Two very different styles for the two days - on the Saturday the band line up is locals Scream In Silence, The Bash Street Band and headlining Souled Out.

Sunday features the Essex Yeomanry Band and the Hutton & Shenfield Choral Society.

For more information visit the festivals website - or call Paul on 07894 418906.


The mystery voice this week was that of Kylie Minogue, on receiving her OBE.

The Blatantly Obvious Quiz asked the question 'How long did the Hundred Years War last? The answer was of course, 116 years.


Got an event coming up? Then let us know. Call 01277 849929 or by email via our website with the details. Or better still, come along and tell everyone in Brentwood and Billericay about your event yourself - call or email to make it happen.
