The MK Secret Sound

    mk secret sound editWhat is that sound driving Milton Keynes crazy? The MK Secret Sound returns to MKFM with CityFibre on Monday 8th March, and it's worth £1000!

    The Secret Sound has been on radio longer than time itself, but it still gets people talking!

    Thanks to CityFibre, the UK's largest alternative provider of wholesale fibre network infrastructure and the builder of Gigabit Cities, you could win £1,000 by simply guessing what the MK Secret Sound is.

    Fancy £1000 to pay off some bills, save for a rainy day, or treat yourself or a loved one?

    After the MK Secret Sound wasn't guessed correctly before Christmas, it returns as soon as the children go back to school (08/03) on the MK Breakfast Show with Darren and Lia. Be sure to tune in to MKFM as the MK Secret Sound returns and becomes the topic of conversation in cars and workplaces across Milton Keynes.

    How to play
