Oh dear - in the Ashes England were hammered at Lord's while the bad weather at St Andrews means we get another day of golf at The Open. Plenty going on in the news and in St Albans & West Herts. I will be with you at 1pm for three hours of fine music from across the decades and amiable banter. Hope you can join me on your community station 92.6 FM Radio Verulam. Don't forget I am here every Monday, Richard Wyborn is with you on Tuesday, Ian Colyer on Wednesday, Stephen & Jenny on Thursday.

Wimbledon is over, the Ashes continues at Lord's this week, and The Open is on soon. No this is not a summer sports show but I will talk about it as well as one or two stories in the news. I will pay a short tribute to Motown songwriter Michael Masser and as always I have wide selection of music from across the decades. With local news, information and comment. Your dedications always welcome on the show. I hope you can tune in at 1 o'clock today.
The summer continues with Wimbledon in full flow and also the start of The Ashes. On a more serious note this week sees the 10th anniversary of the 7th July London bombings. I may reflect on that briefly but otherwise I have a happy, lively show for you today with lots of music including 50s rock 'n' roll, soul, punk, pop oldies, reggae, album tracks and the best of the new releases. On Saturday St Albans has the M Music Festival 6 - Richard Sullivan joins me on air to tell me all about it, and there's plenty going on in the area.
Glastonbury has just finished, Wimbledon starts today, we are promised a heat wave and July is just around the corner. As the summer continues why not pour yourself a cool drink and listen to three hours of fab tunes from across the decades, local music and information, travel updates, news, comment and loads more. Richard Short joins me at 1.40pm to talk about the Cassiobury Park Gates in Watford. After 2pm we have more Zombies A & B-sides, and as always your dedications are welcome on the telephone, Twitter, Facebook or email.
I have a very special show for you this afternoon. My little cousin Daisy is 3 today. I hope to wish her a happy birthday live on air and find out who she shares her big day with. Yesterday, Dave Ellis and I reported from the Phil Milton Charity Cricket Match at Clarence Park for Radio Verulam who were broadcasting live from St Albans Street Festival. We did some top interviews at the match and I will bring you one of them today. I also have local information, news, traffic updates, trivia, entertainment and an awesome selection of music from across the decades.
It is 800 years ago to the day since the Magna Carta was signed in 1215 and next weekend sees the Alban Pilgrimage the St Albans Street Festival and a charity cricket match. I will be talking about this and much more and playing some fine music. Not only this but I am also joined by Sylvia Fountain who presents Verulam Rocks and Verulam Rocks Extra. She will be choosing some of the music and chatting with me if I let her get a word in edgeways!
