Afternoon Verulam with John B-S Today at 1pm

It's a wet and windy Monday so why not stay in this afternoon with a tea or coffee and listen to three hours of fine music and conversation from St Albans. No idea what I'm going to talk about but I will comment on national and local news, give you some what's on info, travel updates and more. I will be paying a short tribute to BB King, we have one or two musical birthdays and more from the Zombies. A few of your requests have come in and there's a lot more besides. If you would like a mention on the show you can phone in, email or Tweet @RVAfternoon.

Afternoon Verulam with John B-S 1pm - 4pm

Well I don't know about you but I thought the general election was pretty exciting. Yes I am back on air today at 1 o'clock with news and comment, local news, travel, information, entertainment, trivia and a fine selection of music from across the decades. As a tribute to Errol Brown I will be featuring Hot Chocolate - you can choose a favourite if you like. I am also bringing back the Zombies A & B sides after 2pm. I don't just play the hits but some hidden gems you may have forgotten.

I am back on air today - May Day Bank Holiday Monday - at 1pm. Three hours of quality music and entertainment on St Albans' finest - Radio Verulam. Including 1s at 1pm (not what you think - every song is a CD track 1 during the first hour of the show). At 2pm we feature local music including classic 60s band The Zombies as well as some new acts and after 3pm soul and love songs including a tribute to the late Ben E King. Plus local news, travel, what's on, trivia and more. Phone email or tweet @RVAfternoon to take part in the show. I hope you can join me today at 1 o'clock

Lunchtime Verulam - Today with John B-S 12-2pm

Fresh from covering Verulam Rocks for Sylvia at the weekend, I am back with my usual show and my bad behaviour which involves playing a lot of great music and talking over much of it or worse still, laughing at my own jokes or just talking complete nonsense! You don't believe me? Well it's true, but I can promise you some great pop oldies, classic hits & album tracks, soul, funk, punk, reggae, rock and the best of the new releases plus local info, news, sport and travel. Join me from 12 noon right here on 92.6 FM Radio Verulam.

Verulam Rocks - 6pm Tonight with John B-S

While Sylvia Fountain takes a week off I will be presenting Verulam Rocks. Two hours of the best in rock, metal and blues. For the past few days I have been making a lot of noise in a darkened room to find the very best possible music I can to give you a truly varied and exciting rock show. This may well include tracks from Argent, Led Zeppelin (BBC sessions), Patti Smith, Jimi Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pat Benatar, Barclay James Harvest, B.B.King, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Wilko Johnson/Roger Daltrey, The Who, Meatloaf and more.

Lunchtime Verulam - Today with John B-S 12-2pm

It's the 2nd June so we are officially into summer! Despite this the football season continues. Arsenal won the Women's FA Cup Final and the World Cup is only 2 weeks away. Personally I am enjoying the cricket and the tennis. Actually I am not doing a sports show but playing you a fine selection of music and entertaining you with local news, what's on in St Albans & West Herts, good conversation and trivia. I can tell you it's 61 years since the Queen's Coronation though another radio station has already got this wrong - I will name and shame later. Do tune in at 12 today - it's going to be fun!
