Here at Beat, we like to challenge our presenters!

A few weeks ago, we gave the Takeover’s David Hammond a paperclip and asked him swap it every week for something better.

He started off here in the office and Alice from Advertising Traffic gave him a water bottle in exchange for his paperclip.

Two weeks ago David swapped THAT Beat water bottle for a lunch for 2 in The Dry Dock Bar in Dooley’s Hotel in Waterford City.

This week David swapped THAT Lunch for 2 in The Dry Dock Bar in Waterford for a gaming chair from Ellie in Carlow. And to be honest he’s pretty happy with it!

Update: David has now swapped that gaming chair for an 18 speed adult raleigh bike from Damien in Wexford, he’s in love with it!

Update: Latest swap, David has traded the Raleigh bike for an electric guitar from Mark in Dungarvan, however David was very busy so he sent Tadgh and the Audi A1 Beat fleet out to collect the guitar from Mark!

If YOU have something to swap David for this unreal guitar, made for people who want to learn how to play, fill out the form below or get in contact with David every night from 7:30 on The Takeover!
