Radio Festival in Manchester
I’ve been away from the breakfast show for the start of this week learning plenty of new exciting things about radio up in Manchester at #radfest11.
There have been all kinds of interesting technology on display like a DAB digital radio transmitter for under 5 grand (I want one of those) and the latest broadcasting equipment. The speakers were fantastic too – my favourites included – Duncan Bannatyne OBE, Steve Wright, New York’s Elvis Duran and Google UK’s Matt Brittin.
I’ll be back on kmfm Breakfast, waking up Medway, tomorrow morning.
Pocket Money Rise
Pocket money has risen for the first time in 7 years. It’s estimated that we’re now giving out £6.25 to each child in the UK.
Much more than when I was a kid!
Most Googled 2011
Amy Winehouse is the most Googled subject of the summer. We were also interested in Ryan Giggs of Manchester United and the Beckham’s newest family member Harper Beckham.
The Apprentice was the most Googled TV show and the movie we’ve been most interested in is The Inbetweeners.
The best of the rest include Wimbledon, Euromillions, Harry Potter and, of course, a British favourite – the weather!
