Welcome to BBC Radio Devon's Countywide Breakfast Programme ... online!

Yesterday on the programme we asked you to come up with three words which, in your mind, summed up the City of Exeter. We picked two winners and asked the current Bard of Exeter to compose a poem which included all six words.

Our winners (both of whom got a copy of the new Joss Stone CD) were Derek in Exeter who opted for "Roman", "Cathedral" and "Quay", and Matt & Charlotte in Appledore who plumped for "cannot", "play" and "football".

Mark Lindsey Earley, the Bard, did us proud, and we'll be posting a copy of the poem here on the bulletin board soon.

In the meantime - I wonder what words you would have chosen?

I've only visited Exeter two or three times so don't know much about it :-(

The poem was brilliant though!! :-)

How do I stop my Plymouth car radio automatically tuning to the ghastly Plymouth show. Unless it improves and becomes less patronising and folksy I'd rather listen to the main Devon show.

Absolutely, how do we get the countywide choice?

Hi Michael. Glad you have a 'board' too. As i listen to you both as i'm making up my 'pack' for the day, and then as i'm driving to where ever i'm working, i don't get much chance to comment. Look out now! Good show mate.

I live in Plymouth and listen to the countywide breakfast show on 103.4fm. Not sure of the solution if your radio automatically retunes itself.

Maybe you can turn off the RDS on your radio?

Friday morning then and another week of early mornings draws to a close.

I've just been sorting out next week's Time of Your Life competition - it's a write in competition testing your knowledge of the news and music of the last fifty years. If you've never heard it - then you're clearly not getting up early enough! Listen out at 5.15 each weekday morning...

I was realty interested to talk to Alan Back on today's programme. He and his brother - from East Devon - have just set a new world speed record for Formula One Rib Powerboats - despite only getting into the sport four years ago. If you missed that part of the programme there'll be another chance to hear the interview on Richard Green's Extra Time from 5 o'clock on Saturday afternoon.

In case you find yourself at a loose end over the weekend maybe you'd like a reminder of the Early Bird Challenge today?

It's CLOT and AT - remember that we'll be looking for the word that you could tag onto the end of CLOT or the beginning of AT to create two new words of hyphenated words.

Have a good weekend - I'm off to the snooker club in a couple of hours for a key fixture in the BBC Radio Devon Snooker League...

Simple, just put an 'H' between 'em.

Ah, but is it the solution they're looking for? I can think of another one......

Dis-regard my last message! <doh>

John, it has to a word not just a letter, that goes on the end of the first word and the beginning of the second.

Hi M&M.
Enjoying the run on strange mixes of food. There seems to be any amount of weird combinations. Personally, the taste of fresh crab, fresh brown bread and real butter, has to be the best. Not strange i known, but very tasty!
I've yet to convice anyone to try my mums tripe and onion recipe, it's GORGEOUS!

Hi Michael.
You've been talking alot lately about pedometers. Don't take the readings as gospel.
I thought it would be an interesting excercise to wear one at work.
Come snack time (10 o'clock), i had clocked up thousands of steps!!
To cut a long story short, because my digger has no suspension, (steel tracks), every little movement counted as one step!

With you on the pedometers - they are a tad sensitive!

As for tripe and onions - eeeeeeewwwww!!!<yikes>

I have to say I like banana on toast (also with sliced grapes as well).

Well hello. I'm sorry for not posting for a while, but it's taken me a while to get over my recent 2-1 defeat in the office Snooker League. It means I now have no hope of getting above Matt Woodley and taking third place, and just a feint chance of overhauling Danny Lawrence (from the Judi Spiers Programme) and finishing fourth. It maybe that I have to settle for 5th - a disappointing result!

Anyway - I hope you've been enjoying the programme in the last few days. It was interesting to hear everyone's thoughts on films this morning - the ones we remember from our childhood. I think it has to be Star Wars for me - 1977 as I recall?

I think the plan is that we give away more pedometers tommorrow (apparently we've "acquired" a few more from somewhere or other!) so I wonder if we can take you up your suggestion Dave? Would you wear one whilst you're on the digger - we'll see if it really does bring up a false reading. (Could you drop me an email on gmd@bbc.co.uk and let me know your address if you're up for this?)

Speak soon,

MC

Hi Michael

Have to confess I've never seen Star Wars either!!

The first film I rememeber seeing was the Fox and the Hound. Apparently when I was a lot younger I was taken to see all the Dinsey films but have no memory of this at all!

Guess that's what happens when you hit 35! :-D

Not another one! I thought it was peculiar enough when Monica hadn't watched it...
