Alvin Stardust dies aged 72

23rd October 2014

Today on KLFM's Oldies Hour we paid just a small tribute to Alvin Stardust who passed away earlier today.  He was best known for his 1970s hit My Coo Ca Choo and a string of successful musicals. 

He came to KL.FM a few years back and made an impression on the girls here due to his steely blue eyes and charm.  He was a complete gentleman, chatted for hours, played the guitar and just generally laughed with us all afternoon.

But do you remember him helping you cross the road?

 

 

 

RIP Alvin Stardust

An amazing moment

21st October 2014

Below is a video that may bring a tear to your eye, it's an amazing moment in someone's life!

Website REDDIT asked people with hearing problems for the sounds they've never heard but are curious about; some of which included, a strangers mobile phone ringing, the wind blowing and birds singing.

If you lost your hearing what would you miss? Post a reply here if you wish.

The video below shows a young lady called Amy who has been deaf since she was born. She has never heard the sound of her parent’s voice or her 6 year old son. Until now!

Car parking!

20th October 2014

When someone's watching it's always harder to park your car, but I don't think this person knew she was being filmed!

A sharp exit

16th October 2014

Have you ever made a sharp exit from somewhere? Has something wound you up so much you just had to leave or perhaps you’ve embarrassed yourself so much you really felt heading for the exit was the best option? Poor old Michael McIntyre has done just that this week at one of his gigs after a very rude member of the audience persisted in using her mobile during his performance. Michael refused to return to the stage for 15 minutes until she stopped texting her friends.

Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold also left the set of the live TV show this week after a rather unfortunate occurrence left him red faced in front of millions...

Go Sober for October & win £50 for dinner

30th September 2014

Go Sober for October

One in three people are affected by the terrible disease that is cancer so it stands to reason that one day it will in some way affect you or someone you know.  I’ve lost my Nan and my Uncle to the BIG C and they were both given amazing support by the nurses and staff from Macmillan.  Macmillan Cancer Support do just that, lend support, be it with money worries, advice about work or even just being someone to talk too and so much more!

In my time at KLFM I think it's fair to say I've done a lot for the community and charitable causes but I don't think I’ve really done anything which is going to affect me quite as much is what I'm about to do!

I'm sure you'll agree with me there is nothing better after a long day at work than going home to maybe just a little glass of wine perhaps two or three nights a week and certainly at the weekend.  After a stressful day it's definitely needed and unfortunately in my case if it's been a good day sometimes it's nice to celebrate too.  I wouldn't say I drink a lot but I certainly do enjoy a glass of something after a day at work which is why I'm beginning to wonder why I've agreed to take part in “Sober for October” .

“Sober for October” with Macmillan Cancer will be a small change to my life but will hopefully help improve the lives of people facing cancer. Could you swap Sambuca for squash or give up wine and go for more walks?
