The MK Secret Sound
What is that sound driving Milton Keynes crazy? The MK Secret Sound is back on MKFM with CityFibre this September, 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 towards a holiday, pay off some bills, or treat yourself or a loved one?
After Carol correctly guessed the previous MK Secret Sound as 'putting a car locking wheel nut back in its box' earlier in the year (30/03/21), a brand new sound has become the topic of conversation in cars and workplaces across Milton Keynes since it's return to MKFM on Monday 6th September on the MK Breakfast Show with Darren and Lia.
