A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY:

Bob’s been playing pop, rock and r&b since 1955 so it’s Music, Music, and Music all the way from the 50’s to today. Listen to the First Hit/Last Hit spot, featuring well known artists. Always listening out for new music. There’s UK and US Chart singles and great album tracks. And the 4 Letter Word Quiz is great fun!

 

Grew up in Birmingham: great rock bands, jazz and folk in the 60’s. Played drums for a spell. Career and family came first, but did hospital radio in Oxford in the 70’s. Joined Coventry Hospital Radio in 2016.  Now living in Stratford-upon-Avon, with my wife: stopped moving at last!
