It's late August. After a beautiful summer day on Saturday we have a rather damp Monday here in Hertfordshire. In the cricket England won the Ashes but lost the fifth test at The Oval, Lewis Hamilton won another grand prix, there's world athletics in China and we are three weeks into the football season. In the news an air crash, more tube strikes in London and the Labour leadership rumbles on.

England have regained The Ashes and the football season has started. Yes, it's the second week in August and as always I have an entertaining show for you today at
Following the sad news about Cilla Black I will as a tribute be playing several of her greatest hits on today's Afternoon Verulam. If you have a favourite you can phone into the show on St Albans (01727) 839926 or Tweet @RVAfternoon and I will play it for you. You can also follow the show on Facebook. Plenty of other music from across the decades and local arlists plus local information, news, comment, travel, sport, trivia and all the other bits and pieces. Three hours of quality entertainment at 1pm - 92.6 FM on your dial or online here.
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.
