Daniel's amazing Lego creation

27th October 2016

I used to love Lego as a kid ... I used to make spaceships and buggys, and spent many happy hours rummaging through the Lego box!

I was delighted to hear about young Breakfast Show listener Daniel Simon, who created a special Lego version of the Wessex FM logo!

I went along to see him at home in Weymouth and was very impressed to see how good it was in person!

Gordon gets a birthday treat

19th October 2016

When people I meet around the county talk to me about the Breakfast Show, there's nearly always one person they mention - not me, not Maria, not Aaron ... but Gordon from Chickerell!

He's been a regular caller on the Wessex Word competition for a couple of years now (he's never got it right though!), and his dulcet tones have delighted many of you.

We found out he was celebrating his 86th birthday today, so decided to give him a little surprise on the air...
