Christmas on Bridport RadioChristmas comes but once a year
Well you can thank the lord for that
When we spend countless hours going ‘round the stores
For the same old load of tat
What do you get the kids these days?
There’s an enormous choice to be had
But unless it has batteries and a button to push
They really think it’s sad
Then there is the rest of the family to buy for
Mums, dads, grans and granddads an aunt Flo’
You ask them all nicely what they would like
But get the usual “Oh I don’t know”
Christmas food, Christmas drinks, tree and decorations too
The list just goes on and on
I work myself into such a state
That I wish Christmas was over and gone
But when on the morning you survey the scene
With those faces alight with a smile
You know that all the worry and work was worthwhile.


New and improved, the original movie posted here was too ginormous so we've made it smaller for faster downloading. Here's some great footage of Bridport stations very own boys and girls in blue, gettin' on down ina night fever stylee. This clip was filmed and edited by Bridport Radio member AHead especially for the local Policemans Ball. So get ready for some rib tickling, toe tappin' entertainment...

Summer, a few years back now

The winner of the fiendishly difficult "where's it to?" competition is Bridport Radio Member Poohface who has bagged a £30.00 gift voucher to spend in Steptoes by telling us where these six pictures were taken, there was also a tiebreaker to complete. We liked Poohface's "I think Bridport is great because...we have a fantastic link to the community through Bridport Radio" But AndyHead's "I think Bridport is great because...I've lived here ten years and there still lots of obscure architectural details that I am unfamililar with" wins him one of our limited edition Mikkimugs.

Our caption competition was so much fun we want to do another one but we need your help, so please contact us for details on how to send us your photos. Anyhoo... congratulations to Bridport Radio Member TINY MIND who wins one of the much sought after Bridport Radio limited edition MikkiMugs with his caption.
