Postcard from Spain is a regular programme presented by Vernon Pearce, in which he plays some of his favourite music, including some Spanish tracks and local musicians, together with news and stories of life on the Costa Blanca to where he has retired. Vernon is passionate about food and enjoys cooking and he features a regular recipe with a Mediterranean flavour on his programme.
Vernon spent many years living in the village of Kingsley near Alton and after presenting Talk about the Environment and the Food and Drink Programme on Wey Valley Radio and Delta FM, he joined HRB. In 2007, after being employed for 3 years as Town Initiatives Manager for Alton, during which time he was responsible for organising events in the town centre such as classic car shows, markets and the Yuletide Festival, he and his wife Celia retired to Spain. You can find out more about their new life in the north of the Costa Blanca on their website.
In addition to his magazine programme from Spain, Vernon also presents the weekday Lunchbox between 12 and 2pm, the late-night Love Songs Hour, Smooth Jazz and several other occasional series such as The Sound of Country, The Sound of the '40s and Grumpy Old Men.
