When Zoe Met Danny... @DuncanWalton_ @kosappeal


On today's show we were joined by the delightful Zoe, who was our co-host for the afternoon.  Zoe has always had an interest in Radio, and when she heard about this opportunity, she didn't let it pass her by.

Last November we had Olivia Beech from the Kos Refugee Christmas Appeal on the show.  Olivia is a local resident who has single-handedly created this worthy cause.  Part of their efforts for 2016 included a charity auction and, amongst the items donated was an opportunity to co-host a Friday Drivetime show.  For more information about the campaign, check out their website http://www.kosrefugeechristmasappeal.com

Zoe played a full and active part in today's show, introducing songs and helping to present various features.  Whilst the songs were playing, Zoe even threw some interesting shapes, trying to entice Danny into joining her for a dance or two!

When we went off air, Zoe interviewed Danny and the result can be heard on our podcast:

Michelle Lake @MissionNutriti_ and Becky Alexander @thelocalfoodie join us to discuss healthy packed lunches




This afternoon we were joined by Becky Alexander and Michelle Lake to discuss their new book, Packed, a guide with healthy hacks and recipes to ensure that your packed lunch is never boring again.

Becky, the food columnist for the Herts Advertiser and the Welwyn and Hatfield Times, and Michelle, a registered nutritionist, teamed up to provide adults with healthy and tasty options for their packed lunch, after years of commuting into London. The aim is to stop people from eating the same thing every day and to eat well at the same time.

For more information about Packed click here and to read Becky's food blog head to thelocalfoodie.wordpress.com/.

The Drivetime Session with @Hidden_Jules

Drivetime regulars Hidden Jules were back in the studio and stunned us once again. The duo are launching their second album 'Spirits In My Wine' at the Horn in St Albans this Sunday 26th February. Jon and Julie played a promo of two of the album's songs 'Let Love Go' and 'Fall from Grace' for Radio Verulam listeners. 

If you act quickly you can catch Hidden Jules playing a couple of tracks in person tonight, the 22nd February, at 8.30pm for the Hare and Hound's open mic night. 

As usual a recording of the performance has been posted on the West Herts Drivetime Facebook page. Or if you'd rather listen to the show again then you can visit http://listenagain.radioverulam.com

Also make sure to check out Hidden Jule's Facebook page for all their latest updates.
