The Speaker resigns

Hello Bloggers.

As I write, we learn that Micheal Martin is to resign as Speaker later today. When he goes he will be the first Speaker to have been forced out of office for more than 300 years. I watched proceedings in the House of Commons with growing disbelief yesterday as he struggled to make his annoucement and several MPs openly called for him to go. The whole thing was a complete shambles! I ask however if Speaker Martin has been made a scapegoat when the real problem is surely the greed of many of our politicians who have fraudulently claimed all these expenses - everything from moats to toilet seats. It makes it harder to trust any of them!
On a lighter note, I have nothing to say about the split between Jordan aka Katie Price and Peter Andre which dominated the tabloids over the weekend. I am pleased that England beat the West Indies 2-0 in the test series but was shocked to learn their captain Chris Gayle would not miss test cricket if it disappeared. It was fun to do the extra programmes for Danny recently and meeting Simon Carver for the film guide (Wednesdays) and Chris Saunders with the gig guide (Fridays) as well as local singer Katie Masson. On recent shows, I have also featured a nonsense poem from Edward Lear, music from Faure and all the usual rock'n'roll!
A few of us from Radio Verulam were at the Harpenden Carnival on Sunday. Thankfully, the early rain didn't last and if I met you I will give you a mention later today. For more fun, tune in at four.

With best wishes
John B-S

The Gig Guide - Review & Tracklisting: Fri 8th May 2009

Greetings all,

Was a bit of a different show this week with Danny away and John BS driving the desk but it was a smooth nearly seamless show once again.

There were lots of gigs to mention this week, mainly due to the fact that it's the St Albans Music City Festival this week. There are stacks of great artists around our excellent city of which all of our artists (yes, even the Outro artists) are taking part in.

For more details on the festival, visit http://www.lemonrock.com/musiccity

Our interviewee this week was the amazing & talented Katie Masson, who came into the studio to talk about her solo projects and also her work with Polly Poison & Her Electric Antidote. Both acts are playing over the next few weeks so make sure that you check out their MySpace pages for more details.

Albany Down - Morning After

West Herts Evening with Danny Smith - Bank Holiday Special this Monday

Greetings all,

While Danny is off Sunning himself in exotic Plymouth, he asked me to mention that on Monday there is a special West Herts Evening show with Mr Smith as well as contributions from yours truly. There will be all the usual music and shenanigans (probably not spelt that right) to round off your Bank Holiday weekend.

So that's West Herts Evening with Danny Smith, this Monday, 4-7pm

Chris

THE GIG GUIDE - On Holiday!

Greetings all,

Just to let you know that there will be no Gig Guide this Friday as Danny is off on holiday and i'm taking advantage of the time to take a well earned break as well!

Normal service will be resumed next week when we have the extremely talented Katie Masson in the studio to talk about her solo projects as well as her work with Polly Poison & Her Electric Antidote

Enjoy the Bank Holiday :)
