Rebecca: Hello. It’s 8.30 a.m. and you’re listening to Manchester Radio. I’m Rebecca Sullivan ...

Kevin: ... and I’m Kevin Taylor.

Rebecca: You can continue voting for your favourite local artists on our website for the next three hours. We’ll play the winning songs this afternoon. But to wake you up we have some of the greatest hits from other countries around the world. We will be playing them until lunch time. And now – the weather forecast. Kevin, what have you got for us?

Kevin: Well, the rainy weather is going to stay with us for a couple of days. This afternoon will be cloudy with heavy showers. If you feel dizzy, blame the low pressure. It has been dropping since yesterday.

Rebecca: Pity! I was hoping for some sunshine for a change...

Kevin: No chance. We’ll have to wait a few more days for that.

Rebecca: Kevin, could you update us on the Manchester basketball team’s results?

Kevin: Well, it wasn’t a perfect finish to the season. When the visiting team scored the winning points in the last minutes, most of our fans had tears in their eyes. Fortunately, our boys still came first in the league table and they are the champions.

Rebecca: Good for them!

Kevin: Now, it’s time for our question of the day. Today it’s “What’s the longest someone has kept you waiting?” You can text us or post your answers on our website. We would like to hear the most interesting stories on air so don’t be surprised if we call you later in the day.

Rebecca: What about you, Kevin? Do you often have to wait for your girlfriend?

Kevin: Well, actually, I’d say it’s quite the opposite. She’s always on time but I’m often a couple of minutes late so it’s me who keeps her waiting.
