All Change for 2009.......and GET FIT!

Sunday Breakfast 18th January 2009


It was all change today extended programme.....Andrew was away so Breakfast took a leisurely four hours from 7 to 11. The change was features...gone were Lounge Lizards, Essential and at last....The Golden Year...though today for one day only there was a reprieve...more of that later. The first new feature at 7.30  is called Soul or Rock n' Roll....well it almost rhymes. This is a potential audience participation feature....that means YOU. The deal is I have two pieces of has Soul written on it....the other Rock. At 7.25 or so I put them in a hat ...well a brown paper bag then pull out the winner. This sets up from a choice of two genres which two tracks I play just after the 7.30 news. YOU can influence the outcome! If you are say partial to a bit of can text me the word soul between 7 and 7.25 in which case I will add another piece of paper to the virtual hat containing the word soul. The same applies for rock n' roll and whilst your vote does not in the randomness of credit crunches and monster munches guarantee success it does stack the odds in your favour.....who can figure out the odds? By the way you can also email me at or do it in the chatroom.
