The Big Yorkshire Breakfast.

AREN'T memories wonderful: a chance to look back with a smile (usually) to a time when things were different.

Call it rose-tinted but I'm proud to admit that I do love a good daydream and last night it felt I was the in the biggest daydream ever.

Sat in the stalls at The Alhambra in Bradford I'd had a crawl through the rush hour traffic, make an extensive search for a parking space and a run through the car park but I'd made it. Craning my neck like a meerkat and clutching a bag of Mint Imperials I was ready for the press night performance of the Lion King to start.

As per usual I had to inch along our row in the semi dark with hushed apologies for anything I may have just stood on.

What I hadn't noticed was an ex-boss sitting next to me on my right, an excolleague from The Pulse and her daughter on the left and virtually the entire staff of Calendar News seated in the row in front of me.

It honestly felt as though I was a guest on This is Your Life, but in the dark.

Sat in the dark as the performance started I was glad I'd put make up on although in minutes I was already lost to all the action on stage.

I'd love to go into detail about the musical but I wouldn't know where to start.

An amazing night though. If you do have tickets to see Disney's Lion King then I am truly jealous. Incredible performances not just on the stage but in the audience as well, where for the first time ever, news anchor Duncan Wood stayed quiet for a couple of hours!

Paul Foster and Debbie Lindley present The Big Yorkshire Breakfast Show on The Pulse every weekday morning 6am-10am. 102.5fm, 97.5fm & DAB. You can follow them on twitter @paulanddebbie
