BARNSLEY-BORN Capital FM DJ Simon Hirst was gobsmacked on a visit to Gawber Road primary school - when the eight-year-old pupils knew what records were.

Hirsty popped in to talk about his radio career but ended up singing and dancing with the kids to 'Hey Yorkshire!', the Capital FM video and song that's gone viral.

It's notched up over 162,000 hits on YouTube, with one fan even suggesting it should be UK choice for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

Hirsty said: "All the kids were singing it - they knew every word. They even knew what records were - yes, those round black things - which is amazing for eight-year-olds. The school is really warm and welcoming."
