Featured below: Cues and scripts that I wrote for BBC Coventry & Warwickshire radio station.

Football Cue:

Can the Sky blues make it 6 league matches without a defeat? 

They travel to Burton Albion tomorrow off the back of a last minute win at Blackpool last weekend… with this goal… 

If Coventry win today it could put them at the top of the league… at the moment they’re second to Wycombe Wanderers on Goal difference. 

Let’s speak to Raj Athwal commercial manager at Burton but previously at Coventry City. 

Friday 13th Cue:

Today is Friday 13th, typically known as the day of bad luck. 

However, some people believe Friday 13th can bring good luck. 

Joanne of Coombe Abbey wedding venue is on the line to tell us more. 


In case it’s escaped your attention- today is Friday 13th.

Are you bothered? Will the date affect your plans for the day? 

Even if you’re not superstitious, there might be certain activities you’d avoid…like flying somewhere, or getting married?

Joanne Evans is Wedding Manager at Coombe Abbey. 

OVO Energy Tour of Britain Cue:

The country’s biggest cycling event comes to Warwickshire today for the second year running.

Stage 7 of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain will see the world’s top riders race from Warwick Racecourse to a hill-top finish at Burton Dassett Country Park.

Here’s Clive Eakin commentating at the finish line in Leamington last year:

So what can we expect this year? Resident MAMIL (middle aged man in lycra) Phil Upton talks us through the route:

Richard Williams is at the start line at Warwick Racecourse for us this morning..

Good Day, Bad Day Segment Script

Good Day: 

It’s a good day for teachers! Starting salaries could rise up to £6,000 under new government plans.  Unions have said this increase is necessary to attract new graduates to the profession. On Friday, a multi-billion pound cast boost was promised for schools of England for the next three years. 

Bad Day:

Also having a bad day when it comes to drugs is a cannabis farm in Spain. It was raided after a TV helicopter following the Vuelta a Espana captured it’s location. Police in Catalonia seized 40 plants in Igualada, near Barcelona, after they were alerted to stage eight footage that showed two rooftop plantations.

A spokesperson added that no arrests had been made and there was an ongoing investigation.
