Breakfast with Hector
It’s Friday! Hector was up late last night as he attended the Damien Dempsey gig. Glen Handsard and The Frames were performing as well and a great night was had. Hector didn’t see the leaba until nearly 1am which is way past his bedtime! But that didn’t stop him this morning. The recent JNLR figures show that Breakfast with Hector has 126,000 listeners daily, so a big thank you to you our listeners and well done to all of 2fm on yesterday’s JNLR.
This morning’s ‘Don’t Panic’, saw Tipperary’s Rob Clancy challenged by Cork’s Peter Long. Rob stumbled at the first hurdle giving way to Cork’s triumph. Peter won himself a night’s stay in the four star McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris for a family of 4. Visit www.mcwilliampark.ie for holiday and overnight packages.
Londis has teamed up with Breakfast with Hector all this week offering fantastic prizes. Each day this week Hector gave away €400 vouchers for local Londis stores nationwide. This morning’s winner was Michelle Coombes who explained that the word ‘Boycott’ comes Co. Mayo. And it was Tuesday’s winner, Darren Hale from Finglas who told of St. Patrick standing in a local well, that won the overall 5 star prize to Fota Island for a family 3 night stay along with €2,500 spending money.
Hector’s Rewind featured the year of 1999 this morning. Sheila Knightly in Offaly correctly recognised the year and managed to win herself and 3 friends an overnight stay in the beautiful Ballsbridge Hotel with a delicious buffet breakfast the following morning.
Aidan Power spoke to Hector this morning ahead of tonight’s The Hit on RTÉ One. The Hit gives songwriters a chance to have a chart success with an established artist singing their song. In each episode six chosen songwriters will pitch their songs to two established artists in The Pitching Rooms. The two artists have to select a song they believe they can turn into a hit. Tune in tonight on RTÉ One at 9.35pm for the first episode of the series.
