Join me Ritchie here on the North-East’s Original 106:
Sunday morning – kick back and enjoy some great songs between 8 and 12.
What is the best gig you have ever been to?
Hootie and the Blowfish in Lake Tahoe, California – the venue was better than the gig!
Who’s the most famous person you have met?
I’ve met loads of famous folk but the most famous has to be Her Majesty The Queen. I was privileged enough to be invited to one of her Garden Party’s – I will let you into a secret she told me (I promised not to share but it’s only you) during her stay at Balmoral she listens to my show every week on her way to Crathie Kirk.
What is the strangest thing that has happened on your show?
Strange…….hmmmm…………everything going to plan would be strange.
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
To slow down time…..it goes far too fast!
What was your favourite childhood sweet?
Opal Fruits (made to make your mouth water)
Do you have a secret talent?
I was a member of Mrs Taylor’s Choir when I was in Clerkhill primary school. She said I had a voice of an angel…she never heard it after it broke though!!!
What was your most embarrassing moment?
Oh no! – Epcot, Florida waiting for the fireworks to begin. Next to me was a group of South American students singing and chanting in high spirits. Someone took the opportunity to discreetly break wind at exactly the same moment they stopped singing and a loud noise echoed around the area….the crowds fell about laughing…they thought it was me……AS IF I WOULD DO THAT???????
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?
You can only do your best, but DO it!
Who is your most embarrassing celebrity crush that you’ve ever had?
Miss Piggy (it’s her hair that does it) but shhhh don’t tell anyone.
What has been your most favourite moment at Original 106 so far?
I have countless favourite moments but for me it has to be witnessing the HUGE response for our Christmas toy appeal…..so very humbling.
Tell us something about another Original 106 presenter?
Rick Cowie has won several prizes for his own recipe fairy cakes…he has a light touch aparently (email him for his recipe)
