NICKNAME: Bob

WHAT GENRE OF MUSIC DO YOU PLAY: Mainly Pop / Rock and some R&B / Soul and Country - and any requests from Jazz to Classical.

IS YOUR SHOW IN A SPECIFIC LANGUAGE? English

WHAT IS YOUR SHOW ABOUT? Playing fabulous music across seven decades - Bobs Golden Oldies - on Wednesday afternoon. There's the 4LetterWord Music Quiz - no prizes - so no emails or phone calls to make: "just astonish yourself with your musical knowledge".

 

If you're going home in a day or two then call or email from your bedside and join the hospital escape committee for a musical send off. There's Bobs Country Corner - two classic country tracks every week - and Rockin' Bob!

 

Chat about films. TV, things we've learnt during the week, andinteresting anniversaries. And between 3pm - 4pm it's requests and dedications.

FAVORITE SONG/GROUP/SINGER: All sorts of music over the last 60 years: amongst them . . .
Elvis to ELO, Abba to Adele, Neil Diamond to Dire Straits, Tina Turner to The Temptations
Beatles to Bruce Springsteen, Meat Loaf to Manic Street Preachers, Buddy Holly to Billy Joel, and many more.

WHAT DOES CHR MEANTO YOU? A great opportunity to put something back: playing great music - the best medicine - to help people going through difficult times.

A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY: Bob’s been listening to pop, rock and r&b since 1955. And still listening out for new music.  Home grown in Birmingham - great rock bands, jazz and folk in the 60’s. Played drums for a spell but sensibly put career and family first. 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!
