The Billericay Discussion Page Christmas Request Show

The Billericay Discussion Page is a Facebook group with over 23,000 members discussing all things Billericay, from lost shoes to the best takeaways, taxi services and moans about bad parking. In fact it’s anything Billericay related and is a great community resource if you want to know what’s going on in the town.Santa-Claus-carrying-sack-of-gifts

About Bob Simpson

The Ojays were right about me - I Love Music, any kinda music! Brought up on The Beatles, wandered through the seventies dancing to anything from reggae to Led Zepplin and took up the microphone and decks all around East London and Essex when I wasn't doing my boring day job. Entered the world of radio in July 2011 and feel home at last. Thanks for visiting. Send me a message or request via Facebook on the link below - you are most welcome.
