    Julian lives just outside Exeter and used to present a series on BBC Radio 3 called "Blues On The Bayou", based on Louisiana Blues.

    Mojo Magazine has described his slide guitar work as ‘dazzling'.

    Julian spent more than three decades touring the UK and Europe with his band Junkyard Angels - the first Pub Rock R'n’B band to play in Exeter
    (circa 1976) when they began a residency at The Prospect Inn.

    Kitty And The Lost Boys

    Kitty and the Lost Boys started life in the basement of an Indian Restaurant.

    The nucleus of the band is Kitty and "Blind Johnny" and up to 19 Lost Boys depending on what is called for; the acoustic band, the electric band or recording projects, the best Lost Boy/s are chosen for the job.

    The band tries to gig in Spain most Summers where they have a lot of fans.

    And one of their biggest claims to fame is that Boy George once sent them a tweet!

    Kitty and some of the Lost Boys will be performing - and maybe telling us what was in that tweet - on today's show.

    Howard Wicks was a very normal, fit and active 16 year old boy; studying for his A-Levels, playing football and leaving it until the last minute before getting ready for school.

    But on 31st October 2011, things changed.

    His parents had gone to work, he'd promised he wouldn't be late for school.

    But his family were not expecting what they found when they got home.

    "Howard, unbeknown to us at the time, had suffered a massive stroke," his mum recounts.

    "He had taken his morning shower and had collapsed in his bedroom before even getting dressed and had laid on the floor the whole day struggling for breathe until we found him some 10 hours later!"

    An active group of supporters and friends are organising a "HOPE FOR HOWARD" weekend in Kingsbridge on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th April 2012.

    One of the organisers, Emma Betteridge will be in to tell us more.
