It's a bit blowey!

18th January 2018

What a morning, I ain't ever none one like it!  Well maybe one or two, hopefully your day wasn’t interrupted too much and you managed to arrive safely. 

Its days like today I realise again how amazing listeners to this radio station are, from the moment I went on air till the time I turned the microphone off at 9 the switchboard was jammed with listeners calling to update others with the problems they had seen.  I don't think there could have been a more accurate and up to date travel service anywhere, it was amazing.

It wasn't just calls about road blockages and traffic jams there were stories of great coming together and members of the public helping each other.  One example was a group of lorry drivers removing a tree from A10 in the early hours of the morning which was then followed by the help emergency services received.  Just before 8am we were told how one person had arrived with a full size chain saw to help clear the tree that had been obstructing the road and causing big queues.  HGV driver’s spoke of their concern driving high sided vehicles and others provided updates on the location of others property that had blown from garden to garden.  Amongst the property found today just like you always read about one of those great big garden trampolines, it might be worth checking if you still have yours!

A big thank you to everyone who got involved and I hope the coverage today helped your journey in some way.

How many mistakes have you made today?

If yo'ure the average person it's five!  Now I know I'm absent minded, forget things and am actualy quite clumsy but even I think I'd struggle to make five and if I have I don't know what they were?


With that in mind I asked "What was the last mistake you made" on this mornings show.  Below is what you said.


Good morning Simon. Marrying the wrong women, gladly correcting that mistake as got engaged to the correct one last year. Russel

How lazy are you?

16th January 2018

Over half of West Norfolk hasn't even broken into a stroll over the past six month’s according to the British Heart Foundation.  When was the last time you did some exercise?  This morning I tried to prove this statistic wrong.

Here are some of the messages recieved this morning.


I’m a cleaner and get an aerobic workout everyday - and I’m a mum - so all my exercise and steps made up daily without thought. Starting yoga next week - just so I can relax lol x


In St James pool at 6am 6 days a week ... 50 lengths. Walk 2.5 miles with our dogs every day Becks xX


I do spin twice a week and water aerobics every seen it I'll NEVER be as fit as my energetic 8y/o at 1am! julie-anne xxx


I think I’ve done my years’ worth already!: 1 hr boot camp last night 5 mile runs Sunday Parkrun Saturday 12 miles Friday Boot camp Thursday 7 miles Wednesday - had a day off last Tuesday 😂 Boot camp Monday and so it goes on!!


Every January I do lots of running.........running out of money


Katherine Shuttleworth - Being a mum. .. Running round and then gym 2/3 times a week.... exhausted...


Emily Blake - Went to the gym yesterday and had a swim too... I have been pretty lazy up til then though.. Lol first gym trip of 2018


Andy Bowers - Be a bricklayer stretching lifting carrying, up-and-down ladders Pushing a barrow full of cement and that’s just some of it ,


Gina Kendal - Walked down the stairs this morning, that’s my early morning workout


Remember if you need some inspiration or a good reason to start getting fit or at the very least have a little exercise why not give A L 4 a go wtih Alive Leisure at the Corn Exchange.
