The Rugby World Cup popped into Hartlepool RFC - as it does - and George Stuart was there to have a look!
He's everywhere is our George Stuart. He's alongside the Rugby World Cup, which paid a visit to Hartlepool RFC and Skylight Entertainment's Ronnie Robson, a hartlePOOL FM sponsor company.
We regularly feature news on the town's famous ship the Trincomalee that's nearly 200 years old. Now based at the Historic Quay where it is a focal point, it was built at the town's docks, only to spend nearly 2 centuries traveling around the world. You can hear regular interviews and updates on the Trincomalee from Bryn Hughes, pictured here with landlubber DJ Dave Parker. Visit the Trincomalee online at http://www.hms-trincomalee.co.uk/
An event at Hartlepool's Borough Hall on the Headland was community singing that featured the Hartlepool Community Choir and a host of primary and secondary school choirs. They all did a fantastic job and Hartlepool FM was there as part of the evening. Our own Mark Page hosted the night and said "Everybody was in fine voice and the Borough Hall always lends itself well to any musical event. There were a lot of proud parents watching on as everyone sang with some gusto." See more online at http://www.singingcommunities.com/soundwaves.htm and select Hartlepool.

hartlePOOL FM on TV? Well nearly. Me Mark and George Stuart made it to the final of a general knowledge quiz which has been shown on TV
Two Hartlepool FM DJs scored a TV success making it through to the final of a wacky general knowledge quiz. The Price of Fish airs on Sky Digital and Anglia TV and Mark Page and George Stuart from the Seaton Carew-based station are in the final. "We won an early round quite easily and came up against another radio station in the final. Itís a really close finish, a real nail biter."
The team travelled down to Norwich from the North East to take part in the show which is recorded in a nightclub. It is hosted by comedian Rowland Rivron. George is something of a quiz veteran having appeared on the show Fifteen to One and Tyne Tees TV's sporting chance.

hartlePOOL FM is top of the polls with our election coverage
The station took to the air the day before Election day and that meant two votes in Hartlepool - for Mayor and M.P.
Experienced broadcaster Alan Wright interviewed many of the candidates. He's pictured here with Iain Wright who was re-elected as the town's M.P. Iain will be on air with us shortly on the breakfast show.
In the studio Alan is talking to Council Leader Carl Richardson who stood in the Mayoral Election. Stuart Drummond retained the position as the town's first citizen with nearly 50% of the votes.
Hartlepool's own radio station is always on hand to support Hartlepool's biggest football team, or is it vice versa? Better ask Neale Cooper.

Radio station Hartlepool FM has stuck a chord with Hartlepool United fans by producing 10,000 stickers within a day of the team getting to the League One Play Off final. Within 3 hours the station had dispensed 3,000 of them and radio bosses expect them to have gone by the end of the weekend.
The station's breakfast DJ and MD, Mark Page said "We were sure Pools fans wanted to show off how well the club had done reaching the high point of its 97-year history and the stickers have gone like the proverbial hot cakes."
The Pools in Cardiff 2005 car stickers are available at the Staincliffe Hotel in Seaton Carew, Morrison's Superstore and the Civic Centre in Hartlepool.

It's our 3rd year running at the Headland Carnival where spits and spots of rain failed to keep out scores of floats and people in fancy dress. Local residents of Hartlepool's Headland stepped out of their front door to observe the annual free show and it was another good one. hartlePOOL FM was custodian of the gate- the Headland Gate public house to be precise as anyone who came or went to the Headland has to pass us by. DJs Ronnie Robson, Dave 'Banger' Walls, Dave Parker and George Stuart (in the lovely plastic rainhood) gave it some welly with 2,000 watts of PA, talking to the passing floats and the resident crowd around the pinnacle point of the Headland. We'll see you there next year!
hartlePOOL FM was! DJs and listeners alike were amongst 17,000 Pools fans at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff for the League One play off final versus Sheffield Wednesday. Sadly it wasn't to be for Hartlepool United, going down 4-1 in extra time. Still it was a great day and we all enjoyed the spectacle of a game at this top venue and the hospitality of the Welsh capital.
