Toy Appeal

16th December 2011

I left the studio while I was playing four songs in a row to join Santa at Scotty's Little Soldiers as we delivered more presents on the Toy Appeal with Hunters Landrover.  Nikki the charity's founder was there to witness the amazing generousity of our listeners, the Hunter's Landrover was chock-a-block full of amazing toys and hundreds of teddys kindly donated by Matalan in Kings Lynn.

I visited the brilliant children at Fakenham Junior school this week and have been editing their clues today for Kids Clues next month on KLFM.

They were great fun and it was pleasure to visit, thanks for the coffee as well!

Lights, Camera, Action!

13th December 2011

Lights, Camera, Action!  I took a trip to Denver Mills Farmers Market to catch up Alix Pollizi (Hotel Inspector) who has been following the family who run the mills and the activities that take place every day.  They are the focus of a BBC2 programme which will feature KLFM early next year.

It was a very cold evening to the say the least but the atmosphere was great, the food was amazing and the mulled wine even better.

Remember to watch the show on BBC 2 next year, I'll let you know when it's on and what its called as soon as know!

Cinderella

9th December 2011

What a great start to the day, I had to visit the QE to interview a Doctor for next year's Charity of the Month on KLFM, I used the opportunity to waste £3 on parking but also have a coffee and cake with my wife who works there as PA to two doctors, it was really nice to take just a few moments out of my day to meet her. (-:

Today was also the last day of giving away tickets to Cinderella at the King's Lynn Corn Exchange so I called my friends at the venue to see if I could get an extra set of family tickets for my on air competition, they said yes meaning I was able not only to give today's winner some tickets but the loser too, this felt good and they were very happy.

I'm gonna be checking out the performance on Sunday evening so if you are going to, please come and say 'Hi'

Carol Service

8th December 2011

I left KLFM slightly early, don't tell the boss to see my kids carol service at St Faiths Church in Gaywood, it was blooming freezing but very heart warming to see Holly, Jake and their class mates perform such a brilliantly put together performance.  The mince pie at the end of the show was very nice too!  Well done to everyone that took part.

Denver Mill Farmers' Market

7th December 2011

I've said it before and I'll say it again "every day is different at KLFM" and today proved my point.  I presented Tim's show between 10-2 so that I was free to help the lovely people at Denver Mill script, create and produce a radio commercial to promote their Farmers Market on Tuesday 13th December, nothing out of the norm you might think for a radio station but we had to start from scratch, including getting them to voice it in time for the advert to be loaded onto our system ready for the next day.  The interesting part to this story is that whilst this whole process took place Clare, one of our media execs, and the guys from Denver Mill were being filmed for a BBC 2 documentary which will be shown in the New Year.

Clare and I were a little nervous at the thought of being filmed for TV, but as they say on all the reality shows, "you forget the cameras are there", honestly you really do.  It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy not only the TV show but quite like the advert we created in such a short space of time.

Have a listen to the advert which you'll hear on KLFM and no doubt on BBC 2 as well!

If you would like to join me, Denver Mill and the show's host Alix polizzi (The Hotel Inspector) for some Mulled Wine and an afternoon/evening of fun please visit us when we will be filming again on Tuesday 13th December at Denver Mills.

The generosity on our Toy Appeal continues to grow; our old MD's office is completely full of your donations for children who won't be with their families or at home this Christmas.

I'll be at ASDA in South Wootton collecting more on Thursday but in the meantime take a look at Santa's Little Helpers organising the gifts so far!
