Hi there & how are you?

On the show today it was day 2 of the What am I & it’s a rollover so make sure you tune in for a chance to win a prize.

Here are the latest clues for you:

1: I am a piece of equipment

2: I come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes & types

3: I am used in science

4: I am also used in industry

I’m also giving away lots of stuff this week as every day I’ve been giving away tickets to the Welsh Game Fair which is in Pembrey Country Park this weekend. To find out more about the fair go to http://www.welshgamefair.com but make sure you tune in as I’ll be giving a pair away until Friday.


I’m giving away the brand new CD ‘Blue Smoke’ from country legend Dolly Parton every day this week too. It a double album of her greatest hits & a must for Dolly fans.









And tomorrow for fans of amazing music my special is smooth soul singer Gregory Porter. I’ll be finding out more about the man & his music.





Now I can’t believe the first Race For Life event has come around so quickly as this Sunday Llanelli will be painted pink as thousands of incredible woman run, walk, and jog or even dance the way around the 5k route in the fight for cancer.

I’ll be there with Swansea Sound & our sister station The Wave & our four teams. If you’d like to join one click on this link & get involved. Also husbands, dads, partners, brothers & children are welcome to come along & give us lots of support & cheering. Here is the link to sign up. Go for it!!




However if you can’t make the event & you’d like to donate here is the JustGiving site where you can donate & all monies goes to Cancer Research to help fight against cancer.




Thank you xx



I love this story in the Metro today

In one of the more baffling videos to make the rounds in a while, a platoon of geese march down a Dutch pavement.

No one’s really sure what this madness means, but let’s hope it has nothing to do with the implementation of some sort of water-fowl martial law.

Honestly, we should probably be more concerned about the two humans, who appear to be conducting this odd display with no affiliation to a larger event. So what’s happening here?

Well, thanks to the shoddy skills of Google Translate, the spectacle is apparently part of the Ganzenfanfare, an age-old tradition celebrating the country’s geese herders.

According to one website, the march will show up ‘wherever the party is,’ which in this case is outside an Intersport on a Saturday afternoon.

Here’s the YouTube link
