Alban Street Festival Sunday 19th June

We will be broadcasting live from the Alban Street Festival in St Peter's Street this Sunday 19th June from midday through to 6pm. We will be presenting the atmosphere of this great annual event to our listeners with its entertainment for all the family, pop-up food stalls and live music throughout the afternoon.

But if you can come along yourselves even better! If so, do come and say hello to some of your favourite Radio Verulam presenters in our temporary studio outside Boots!


Tune in at 9-00am this Saturday for the definitive oldies programme with Dereck Staines and Ken Moorton. Starting off with our Flashback at 9 you will hear the music and news from July 1975, at 12-15 we take you back to July 1988. Ken has loads of nostalgia between 10 and 12 including another classic 60’s girl and another track from the John Lennon album. At 10 past 10 Dereck remembers Scotty Moore who is best known for his backing of Elvis Presley in the first part of his career, between 1954 and the beginning of Elvis's Hollywood years.
