Breakfast with Hector
Wednesday morning and Hector began by announcing the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby girl, 'Kai'. Surely that’s a boy’s name? Hector asked if there were any girls with boy’s names and boys with girl’s names around the country. Lots of texts and calls with names like Lesley, Sam, Phil, and lots of Tipperary based men with Mary for their middle names!
Dubs v ROC and the Cork man, Cathal Rochford, defended his title this morning. His very worthy opponent was Dub, Will McNabb, who put up a strong battle on behalf of the Dubs. Alas, Cathal was the stronger competitor and managed to win himself tickets to Justin Timberlake with special guests Jessie J and X Factor winner James Arthur in the Phoenix Park on July 10th 2013. All qualifiers will be entered into the draw Friday for a chance to meet James Arthur. Hector will be looking for another Dub to compete tomorrow so if you’re originally from Dublin and think you can beat the Cork man, text where you’re from and your name to 51552 tomorrow morning from 7am.
‘Neigh the Lyrics’, is a competition running all this week on BWH to celebrate the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby. The Derby takes place at The Curragh Racecourse on Saturday 29th June.

Cranky Car had Hazel who’s 8 and a half years old and attended Clonlisk National School on this morning. Her mum, Deirdre, was dropping her to the bus as she was about to head off on her school tour. She’d be up very early but was more excited than Cranky when she spoke to Hector. So, Hazel and Deirdre sang the ‘Not-A-Cranky Car’ song instead!
We’ll be broadcasting live from the studios in Dublin tomorrow from 7-9am. Join us then for a cuppa!
