26th February 2013



On Paddy In The Morning Today…

We were talking about the best present you ever got as a child.. What was it? And how excited were you to get it? Thanks for all the interaction today. Here’s just some of what came in…

Sharon Mason My most memorable present (but not best - that was my Tippy Tumble when I was about 3 or 4) - was a brand new shiney shovel - Christmas morning - my daily chore was bringing in the coal for out fire but my shovel was so buggered. Mine was the first christmas present to be opened that year and i had to fill the coal buckets before we could carry on. Happy days

never got it.... Ever! Lol

Shazney Pester My best Christmas present ever, ever, ever in the land of ever! was my "speak and spell" I loved it. Geeky but true. Bought one on Ebay last year paid £100 for it but don't tell my husband!!!

Karen Gatenby Hi Paddy its Karen many years ago i got a bugs bunny that you pulled a string and it talked my older brother came home from a good night out and broke it,i loved that bunny,lol

Helen Mason probably the thing I was most excited about was a bike, nothing special just a bike! But one I go the most use out of was a piece of plastic!!!! it was 4' x 6' sheet - the kind of stuff you get in clip frames - and it was fantastic - the hours I spent on the floor or table drawing, painting, cutting, glueing, whatever and not worrying about anything dirty. It was FAB!

Also today…

  • A romantic guy who released 12 heart shaped balloons was arrested for causing pollution in Florida!
  • The first satellite to be powered by a smartphone was sent into space yesterday! To test SCREAMS! The device features an android app which they developed to test the theory that “in space no one can hear you scream”. It will orbit the earth playing videos of the best screams! A good use of government money eh?!
  • Doctor Who fans will get to see the WHOLE Tardis in the new series including a swimming pool!
  • Remote towns in Siberia are populated only by men!
  • A groom kidnapped his wife to avoid paying the bills for their wedding! I take thee – quite literally!

Today’s Amazing Yorkshire Coast Fact Of The Day…

The Seamer to Pickering line closed in 1950 68 years after it opened.. on the last train journey people gathered on platforms and in the fields to wave the train through..

There were stations at Forge Valley, Wykeham, Sawdon, Snainton, Ebberston, Thornton Dale and they were all designed exactly the same! Got a fact? Email:

The Buzz About Town…is a fact read out by a Yorkshire Coast Radio listener every morning.. Today the lovely Daisy from Scarborough. We buzz out a word. You guess what it is.. Today we learned the myth of eating carrots to see in the dark was made up during the war! Another one at 6:20am!

Yorkshire Coast Radio’s Secret Sound… No winner today. Nathan guesses the sound is a penguin at Scarborough Sealife Centre. Lines open at 7am tomorrow for £1370 if we don’t get a winner today!

Major Public Embarrassment!

13th February 2013


  On Paddy In The Morning Today...

Pancake Disaster! Well.. I had to face the music and talk about a wonderful event yesterday: Scarborough's Strictly Pancakes in the town centre. All went really well until I fell over doing the assault course! What made it even worse was that I wasn't even racing against anyone! There are pictures and video doing the rounds! It was a laugh and rather painful too! But thanks for coming to support that great annual event!

1st Day Of Lent... What are YOU giving up? I've given up Crisps and Chocolate! It was going to be watching football but on day 1 of Lent it's Real Madrid V Manchester United... NO CHANCE! We had a huge response to this. Here's some of what came in...

Suzanne Walsh - As a family we are giving up biscuits, choc, sweets, crisps and cake. Our kids are 11 and 9 so a real challenge for them!!!! We are also going veggie for 6 weeks, can't think why!!!!
Nettie Fawley - My son 1 year gave up his RE homework I asked him why and he said for religious purposes and my daughter yet again as given up fruit and veg I don't think so somehow Scarborough

Half Term.... For some!

11th February 2013



On Paddy In The Morning Today

  • I mentioned the unusual situation we have this week where some schools on the coast are on Half Term.. most have to wait until next week.. Does his affect you? We got a big reaction.. Here’s some of it…

Sally Campbell My son is at east riding college in Bridlington and i work in a school for North Yorkshire county council and we have different half terms. It has made it impossible for us to go on holiday together!

Caroline Broadhead Should be sorted out. I'm a full-time teacher in Brid with a 5 and 9 yr old at school in Scarb. I work hard and long hours and look forward to spending quality time with my children in hols. I am however going to enjoy the school run this week, something I hardly ever get chance to do normally!

Sue Greenley All my children go to north yorkshire schools and I work for nycc, the hardest thing I found was teacher training days. I had primary and secondary school children and we rarely had same ones off together.

Sarah Heslehurst yes, I work in a North Yorkshire school but live in East Yorkshire so i cant spend the half term with my children and have to rely on grandma to have them for the week:(

Jo Miles I've booked to take my kids to watch football this half term or so I thought then I discovered our half term is different to every1 else's!! Now they have school after going to an evening game and not getting home till gone midnight wish they would just keep all holidays the same it's a real ball ache when there at different times.

  • Also.. I wanted to hear about your HOLIDAY DISASTERS… Here’s some of the s  ocial media stuff that came in…

Gill Maher Cayo Coco in Cuba! ! Minging stinky swamp under the main part of the hotel, probably the cause of 8 days of "THE TROTS" damp smelly rooms, toilet held together with string. And sooooooooo boring unless you pay for trips, if you want to "see" the real Cuba you must go onto the mainland.

John Walker malia last year second day of holiday slipped coming out of shower, only sprained my left ankle, but hobbling around for 2 weeks then got bitten a few days later on the right foot which then got infected so had the other foot bandaged up as well

Charlotte Mason Fell over in a club in Benidorm and ended up in a hospital on my own 17 miles away!!! Woke up the next day with my leg in a cast and paying a fortune to fine my hotel!!!!! (Scarborough)

Apparently 3 in 5 of us start our holiday wearing the wrong clothing! We’re getting off our plane in the Caribbean wearing our woolies! 1 in 10 get changed in the plane toilet. But is there really enough room to do that? Plane toilets are tiny!

9 Non Stop was 1976 today! Another year of great songs tomorrow at 9!

Tomorrow on Paddy In The Morning…

  • Hear from the people of EASTBOROUGH in Scarborough with “what are you giving up for Lent”? I’m on Eastborough this afternoon with our shopping local stickers too!
  • Also.. Are you a woman  desperate to attract a man? The answer is simple! I’ll reveal all tomorrow!
  • And after Strictly Pancakes in Scarborough tomorrow lunchtime, I’ll be heading to my Street of The Week which this week is Coach Road, Sleights! The 3 things I’m looking for (it’s a love theme) are:

1)      What’s your partner’s worst habit?

2)      How did you get proposed to/ or propose?

3)      Who was your first kiss with?

I’ll also be sticking up our ‘Say Yes To Shopping Local’ stickers.

Later this week…..

Wednesday:  We celebrate being SINGLE the day BEFORE the slushiness of Valentine’s Day!

Thursday: Valentine’s Day! I’ll be recording messages on the street on Wednesday to play out on Thursday. You can also record a message on the phone on Thursday morning!

Friday: Boy George is on the show ahead of his performance in Scarborough DJ’ing this weekend!

The things we've given up that we now regret!

6th February 2013



On Paddy In The Morning Today...

With Rebecca Adlington quiting swimming aged just 23... I asked you to tell me what things you've given up which maybe you now regret! Got some fantastic calls in.. Listen to the podcast to hear them! Here's some of your comments on Facebook / Twitter...

Rebecca Clarkson The single life!! Haha I don't think my husband would be amused if he heard me discussing that on the radio.

Nicola Garnett I'm giving up my husband for 6 months of the year whilst he goes and works on the oil rigs in the middle if the North Sea!!!! Ps the party's at mine!!!!!!!

Stella Larkin Ballroom dancing! Was nearly good enuf for the old 'come dancing' comps that Len goodman judged! Gave it up at 15 for my exams!!!! It was also unpopular at the time( early 80's!) now look at it!!! Regretted it for years

Jaye Sansom I was good at playing the violin.Acheived grade 6 but my confidence got the better of me and I gave up.I always make sure I never give up on anything good these days,just the bad,hence 7years+one month smoke free.Jaye from Seamer :))

Street Of The Week.. This week is the Promenade in Bridlington! I recorded loads of stuff yesterday and stuck up a load of our new "Say Yes to Shopping Local" stickers which went down a storm! Listen to the podcast to hear some 

The Dentist... Gave me a good telling off yesterday as he booked me in for 3 more fillings! The receptionist said "can you make next Tuesday at 12"? The look on her face was amazing when I replied "no I can't. I'm pancake racing then"! Well it's true I am!!

Cayton School... is one of the local schools taking part in a world-record attempt today for the biggest singing and signing at the same time. I'll be there live from 2pm onwards to witness it!

The Buzz About Town.. Today we discovered that we're shorter in the evening than in the morning. Something about gravity getting you down?!! Another fact with a word buzzed out tomorrow and asked by a Yorkshire Coast Radio listener at 6:20am.

9 Non Stop... 1979 today.. 9 songs non-stop commercial-free every single morning from one mystery year and with some great local memories of events that happened on the coast in that year! Start your workday with more music than you'll find anywhere on your dial!

Tomorrow on Paddy In The Morning...

National Sickie Day! Who's not turned up at your place today?

4th February 2013



On Paddy In The Morning Today...

It's National Sickie Day! The day when most people (about 350,000 in Britain) pull a sickie! So.. who's missing in your workplace today? I had a call from Wendy in Scarborough who sounded dreadful (no offense) and was going to call in sick today until she heard me talking about it and as a result daren't! I feel awful! So bad I may have to take the rest of the day off work!! Helen on Travel said she once gave the excuse: I can't come in cos I've only got one pair of shoes and can only find one shoe"! I know that must be fake... what woman only has one pair of shoes?!  Here's some of what else we got in...

Fiona Strachan I once worked with a man that rang up work and said "ooh Im not coming in today I think ive had a heart attack...... But ill be in tuesday! Lol 100% what he said! (Brid)

Sharon Nananutty Ellis I did genually have a very bad dose of tonsillitus but the endevour was commin into whitby my now ex hubby talked me into going to whitby when we got there of course there were tv all over i ended up sat on a bench on northside cliff tops while my hubby went down into the town to see it but i enjoyed myself and had a big ice cream into the bargain but i was frightened to death someone would see me lol

Claire Louise Saunders Claimed to be sick when my then boss rang for me to start a couple of hours early in stead of starting at 5pm to start at 3pm I told her I couldn't as I had gone over on my ankle speaking on my mobile while walking round York minster! (That was 11years ago on the 11th may start of the Dante meeting) and yes I lost my job but met a great man at the races now we are married :))

Whitby Pavilion... On Saturday to see Tinkerbell with my family! It wasn't without drama! I spilt a drink all over floor which slid towards the lady behind me who had an expensive looking coat on the floor! I also left Leo's teddy bear in the theatre afterwards. When I went back in to look for it a little girl was holding it! I wouldn't say I wrestled the teddy off her.. but almost! She did utter the words "it's mine. I found it"!

TESS DALY...Was on the show talking about crabbing in Scarborough Harbour with her family! We'll look out for her and Vernon this summer! We also talked about our children as we're both parents of young children.. not the same children before rumours start!

The Amazing Yorkshire Coast Fact Of The Day... Was about King George III who was sent to RAVENSCAR by doctors to recover from.. GOING MAD! Thanks to Diane at Raven Hall who has since emailed me with confirmation of this story and i'll share some fascinating stuff they've sent through tomorrow.. If you've got an amazing local fact email me: and it could get read out at 8:15am!

Dropped my phone in the bath... Last night! Thanks to everyone who suggested I lock it in a cupboard for 3 days in a sealed bag of rice.. the thing is.. despite it being submerged in the bath for about 5 seconds whilst I looked for it, it's totally fine! Even the visible patch of water has gone!

Street Of The Week... This week is The Promenade in Bridlington! I'll be there tomorrow with our new "Shop Local" stickers for shop windows.. I'm also after 3 things from the people of The Promenade.. Weird Phobias, People who've won an award for something AND people who've always lived in Bridlington and always will! I'm there tomorrow lunchtime onwards!

I also talked about... Women who are overdue in pregnancy are often told to "have a curry". One woman did but the effects were quite sudden! Just minutes later she gave birth to a baby!

And.. a man has paid £60 to twin a toilet in his local church with a toilet in a church in Congo.. no idea why but he has!

On Paddy In The Morning Tomorrow...

STREET OF THE WEEK: I prepare to hit The Promenade in Bridlington tomorrow afternoon with our brand new 'Shop Local' stickers, car stickers and a microphone and maybe even the marquee.. I'm looking for people with weird phobias, people who've won awards and people who've never lived anywhere else but Brid and never want to live anywhere else! Are you on The Promenade in Brid and fancy a visit?

TOMORROWS PHONER: What little lies did you tell your kids when they were small? Maybe you still do.. What little lies did your parents tell you to keep you in line?

Embarrassing parents and Happy Mondays are coming!

1st February 2013



On Paddy In The Morning on Friday...

Do your parents still embarrass you even though you're well into adulthood? We got things like parenmts in their 70's who still give you their opinion on new partners or make married couples sleep in separate rooms despite benig in their 40's and with their own children! I mentioned how my Dad would give me my own team talk at school football matches after my team talk with our sports teacher! CRINGE!

We announced that: HAPPY MONDAYS are to play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on 22nd June! We also gave away the very first set of tickets for the concert! Well done to Yvonne Salt!

Street Of The Week... More from the peolpe of Station Avenue and Murray Street in Filey today on favourite holiday destinations, people who've never walked along Filey Brigg and those people with 2 jobs.

Mother in Law is coming over to Scarborough today... I remember once she made me a packed lunch. The promise was for sandwiches, sausage rolls, a steak pie, crisps, sweets. She gave me the wrong bag and I came into work with a bag with nothing more than a giant CABBAGE in it! I think it was accidental!

Bits & Bobs...

*Being a football manager is the job most desired by Boys AND GIRLS aged 11-16 according to a poll.. Being PM came 4th,,,

*A boozed up teenager broke into a police station, stole an officers uniform and started directing traffic...

*Firefighters in Wrexham had to rescue a CHAIR… it was on a shop roof and they feared it woud be blown over onto passing pedestrians...

On Paddy In The Morning on Monday...

TESS DALY is on the show! She loves the coast and her family love crabbing in Scarborough Harbour! We'll talk about that and Strictly Come Dancing and what else she's doing in 2013!

Street Of The Week is back with a road in Bridlington being announced on Monday as my next destination!

And win BIG MONEY with Yorkshire Coast Radio's Secret Sound at 7:20am!

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! Enjoy National Yorkshire Pudding Day on Sunday!
