On Air Wednesday Evening 21:00 to 22:00

With a repeat on Sunday 20:00 to 21:00 Then on Monday at 21:00 on Hospital Radio3 in Australia.
I must be one of the luckiest guys around. Every week I get to play an hour of Rock ‘N’ Roll of my own choosing.

Rock ‘N’ Roll has been in my blood since, as a child I had my first Elvis Presley 78. Unfortunately it was cracked and produced a click on every revolution. To this day, every time I hear Elvis singing ‘I Don’t Care If The sun Don’t Shine’ I can hear that click.

I joined Hospital Radio at aged 21, I am now an OAP. I started at St Nicolas Hospital in Plumstead (now demolished) then onto Erith Cottage Hospital. Next, I moved to Joyce Green Hospital in Dartford (also now demolished) before coming to Meridian Radio. (watch out QEH you may end up being demolished)

I have always played Rock ‘N’ Roll, usually mixed with chart and pop music plus much plenty comedy. When I first came to Meridian I shared a programme with Alan Taylor the then station Engineer. Alan moved on and by then I had retired from the 9-5 working life. The programme morphed into pure Rock ‘N’ Roll with the odd bit of comedy thrown in. Until my retirement I lived locally, Plumstead (where I went to school), Belverdere and Erith. I have now moved to New Romney on the south coast. Not quite into a retirement home yet.
My family live in Sidcup and Erith so I am regularly travelling up and down the M20.

I still run the website for Radio Joyce Green and look after a couple of other websites. My personal site is and the one connected to the radio show Every week on the Kids website I have a listen again show with its running order, I have also listed all the running orders from number one. One fine day, when finances allow, I will put all the shows onto the web for your delight.

Keep on rocking.
