    15-year-old Joel Hoddell started producing music two years ago on the computer at school.

    He loved music production so much, he decided to get the software and use it at home.

    He's recently teamed up with Jacob Thompson, who's been playing piano since he was five and has been DJing for three years.

    This was the first time the Tillington and Lower Bullingham duo have performed together.

    Tonight, we've sent Andy O'Hare to the Boar's Head in Kidderminster for their all-weekend-long '60 Years Of Music' to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - tonight featuring Bunter And The Vibes, Naked Remedy and Skewwhiff.

    Other acts over the weekend include The One-Twos, Rouen, Flat Stanley and The Lights, with acts playing not only inside a venue with one of the best in-house sound systems going - but also on an open-air stage in New Park opposite.

    We had a fantastic time when we recorded one of our monthly live sessions at the Boar's Head a short while ago - and not only is it one of the must-play venues for local acts - but there's also a rock-music-themed art gallery for you to browse around!

    National Recognition

    Rising folk pop artist Lisbee Stainton was in session for BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris, with tracks from her third LP 'Go'.

    She has been championed by Radcliffe and Maconie and Tom Robinson on 6 Music and appeared on Radio 2's In Concert. Lisbee was also personally chosen, by the artists themselves, to support Joan Armatrading, Paul Carrack and Raul Malo on tour.

    Hear some of those highlights on this week's show.

    The Voice UK

    The Bewdley teenager Becky Hill has failed to make it through to the finals of the BBC TV talent show, The Voice.

    She lost out in the public vote, after singing Corrine Bailey Rae's Like A Star.

    But after the show, judges Jessie J and Sir Tom Jones warned her the way she sings could cause lasting damage, so Becky is now focused on learning new techniques.
