kids on the radio

Suzy Cato is a familiar name to thousands of kiwi kids (and their parents).

Formerly known as the Suzy in Suzy’s World, now this lovely lady does a radio show on community stations called The Great Big Kids Show (7am-8am Sunday mornings).

I am telling you this because I heard an ad on the radio a few weeks ago calling for children who were interested in co-hosting one of the shows with Suzy at our very own Central FM in Waipukurau. Lachlan said “yes” without hesitation. When he was selected, I told him I was proud of him for being willing to try something he didn’t know much about. “Mum,” he replied, with a voice dripping with more wisdom than a kid should have… “You never get anywhere in life without giving things like this a go.”

So we went. He did it, loved it and we will all be listening this Sunday.

Here’s a link to a list of participating radio stations if you’re keen to pop in for a listen.

As well as helping Suzy and another co-host Trevor with shoutouts, birthday calls and talking about his school and his soccer, they did a segment on Mother’s Day (goes to air May 13). The thing I’m not so keen on? Lachlan also telling the nation about my milestone birthday that very day.

Happy Birthday to me 🙂

and Happy Mother’s Day in advance – love you very much Mum.
