4BR Quiz: Sponsored by Ev-entz

It's about getting a surprising surname connection if you want to get your hands on Black Dyke's latest CD.

4BR logo

 

Just a little playful quiz today to see if you can make the odd connection...

Surname

What surname links a former bass player with Grimethorpe Colliery Band with a diminutive All Blacks rugby winger of the 1970s, a famous Yorkshire sit-com battleaxe played by actress Kathy Staff and a Tyrell Corporation Nexus-6 model replicant from the film ‘Blade Runner’?

You have until 12.00pm tonight (17th October) today to see if you can come up with an answer to win Black Dyke’s latest CD, ‘In Tribute’—The Music of Philip Wilby.

Albert Hall winner

We had a fantastic response to our National Finals ‘Pick a Winner’—with Jason Owens of Stroud getting it right with Cory. There is a neat little package of CDs on their way.

Clue

The replicant in the film was played by the great Rutger Hauer.
