The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 29th March 2016

After quite a long time away, Chris was allowed back into the studio. Danny had finally decided to let Chris out of the locked room he had trapped him in. Danny is often jealous of Chris and his chiseled good looks, effortless charisma and charm, unbridled intellect, and devastating athleticism (among other things). Without Chris' benevolent leadership and bravery in the face of adversity the quality of the show had dipped somewhat in recent weeks. This was partly due to the rift that had developed between Danny and Erin. It turns out that Erin has a habit of rugby-tackling people she knows in the street and Danny had been an unfortunate recipient of this. Danny, who recently got his bus pass, doesn't think his heart can survive another scare like that, but Erin has promised to never stop. This could end badly...

Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.

Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley), a 16-year-old cancer patient, meets and falls in love with Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort) from her cancer support group.  The two share both share the same wit and a love of books, especially "An Imperial Affliction" by Peter Van Houten.

The Drivetime Sessions w/ Chris Flegg

On the Drivetime Sessions today we were joined once again by local musician Chris Flegg.

As always on the Sessions we asked for two original songs, as well as a cover of the work of another artist. Chris was more than happy to comply, playing us 'Somebody Or Nobody', 'When You're a Refugee' and a cover of The Beatles' 'Penny Lane'.

For more details and to keep up with Chris visit his website:

Holiday Atmosphere! - Interior Design with Gwendoline Alderton @GA_Interiors

Today on the Drivetime Show we were joyfully joined by Gwendoline Alderton for the shows regular Interior Design feature!

Gwendoline spoke about features that can be added and altered in your living space to make it feel like a holiday atmosphere!

Thinking about neutral based colours such as cream, white and grey (which is considered very modern moment), makes the room feel a lot more spacious and comforting. The use of pastel colours such as pale pink and pale blue, which are also the colours of the year, make the interior a lot more holiday themed with sea colours such as light blue and green adding ocean subtlety.

To finish off the discussion, Gwendoline recommended wooden flooring is also a very holiday/beach themed add on with the addition of a lovely blue and white striped rug to fill the centre floor.
