Breakfast with Brian

The Saturday Breakfast Show is a great way to start your weekend if you're looking to do something in the Brentwoodand 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.
Today my studio guests were Mike Tidder from Brentwood’s local Leukaemia Research fundraising group and Lillian and Jill from the Ingatestone Musical and Operetta Group (IMOG).
I had spoken to Mike a couple of weeks earlier when he was organising a fund raising Wine Tasting evening in association with Sainsbury’s. Today he was promoting their Quiz Sheets, or to give them their correct title, the Autumn Boggler IV.
It’s their fourth year with this quiz and they are hoping to raise over £1000.00 for Leukaemia Research. All you have to do is buy a quiz sheet for a £1.00 – they’re available from the Edinburgh Wool Shop in Brentwood High Street – complete the quiz and get it to them by the 1st of November and you could win £60.00.
More details about the quiz and all the other things the group get up to from Mike Tidder on 01277 222 920.
Knowing that Mike was a bit of a sports fan I coerced him into being my guest Sports Roundup (in association with Acorn Windows) person this week – didn’t he do well!
Lillian, the Chair and Jill, Publicity for the Ingatestone Musical and Operetta Group (IMOG) were in the studio to talk about their group’s latest production, The Music Man, directed by Betty Moore.
As you may have guessed it’s a musical with such rousing numbers as 76 Trombones – and they encourage the audience to sing along but sadly neither Lillian nor Jill would burst into song this morning.
Music Man is on at Ingatestone and Fryerning Community Club Theatre in the High Street in Ingatestone, Tuesday 21st to Saturday 25th October at 7.45pm with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets from Dizzy Morgan on 01245 360532

This Breakfast Brain Teaser asked ‘what position you would be in if you were participating in a race and you overtook the second person.
If you said, first, you would be wrong. If you overtake the second person you take their place therefore you will be second.
A few weeks ago Manos the Greek, Brentwood’s own funny man, entertained us in the studio. He’s the organiser and founder of the Brentwood Comedy Club which has shows regularly at The Essex Arms. I called him on the phone to see how things were going. Apart from tonight the next show is on Saturday 1st November.
More info from Manos, drop him an email – or check out his website,
The Mystery Voice this week was that of former Beatle, Ringo Starr who during the week posted a video on his web site telling fans that he would no longer be signing any fan mail or memorabilia.
A couple of correct answers but first of the mark was Coralee from the Hair Company who actually came into the studio with the answer. Well done Coralee.
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 Brentwoodand Billericay about your event yourself - call or email to make it happen
