Monday to Friday 6am to 8am The Geriatric DJ brings you the early show.

You can listen to the music of The Geriatric DJ any time of any day by checking out his podcasts where you can enjoy more than 300 different shows.

Founded in 1978 CRMK is the oldest radio station in Milton Keynes. Originally Cable Radio Milton Keynes the station broadcast through cables serving houses in the New City of Milton Keynes. No longer a cable station and no longer exclusively a Milton Keynes radio station CRMK broadcasts to the world on the Internet

Every Saturday the podcast from my Thursday show - Dave's Disco - is played at The Dreamsai Lunch Of Love.

The doors of Unity Park Bus Station - better known as The Buzzy are thrown open for our lunch of love.

During the morning Dreamsai members have prepared delicious meals at home which are served to guests. Hot and cold drinks are served by Julie our QUEEN OF THE KETTLE. Every meal has a free ticket in our Tombola Of Love  with every ticket a winner. We have a Freebie Box of clothing and other items. Everyone is given a packed tea to take home.

After the lunch our team goes out on the road taking food to pavement buddies who did not make it to the lunch.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME at our lunch of love. It does not matter if you have a single penny or an American Express Gold Card in your pocket, everyone is welcome. Those who are hungry, those who are lonely and looking for some friendship, those whose only home is the pavement.

With LET'S PARTY I am inviting you to invest your love into our lunch by sponsoring a track. You can do this though our GoFundMe account or by downloading one of my e-books where all royalties are directly used to support our guests.

So scroll down, check out the playlist for the next show, click and listen to the tracks. SPONSOR THOSE TRACKS and have fun with the features I have included to help you rock and roll.  Thank You - The Geriatric DJ

PS: Don't be boring, play the tracks and dance as you surf this page !

One Saturday a young Romanian man came to our lunch. He had been a modern-day slave for four years working in a car wash. After escaping his masters he was rough-sleeping behind Milton Keynes Civic Offices. He had tried, tried and tried to get help but was turned away simply because he did not have ID.  He told me he was not looking for charity, just for a helping hand to get his life together. He would then find a job and start a new life.

A guest shared his moving story with me. He had been a research chemist, he had a Phd but suffered a nervous breakdown. He lost his job, his marriage broke up and he was forced to rough-sleep on the streets. He told me that when he approached Milton Keynes Council he was told he did not qualify for help.

Criminal gangs target the most vulnerable ! In one year in England criminal drug dealers destroy more lives than have every serial killer since Jack The Ripper !

An addict is victim and certainly not a bad person. Addiction is a mental health condition.

We provide help and support to any guest who asks for support.

Billy Ashford was my uncle, my father's older brother and an uncle I never met. He was killed during a bombing raid over Germany on the night of 8th March 1945. I was not born until November 1950 so obviously never met him, never met him but did know him. As I grew up his memory was alive within our family, his photograph was always there to be seen and he was constantly mentioned in family conversations.
For the past twelve years I have, on and off, researched our family history. I started with the anecdotes my grandmother, Billy's mother, used to tell me then moved out to delve into records held in many different places. It was not hard to learn more of my uncle who had died at such a frighteningly young age.
Although I never met Uncle Billy I do know him. In this interview I have taken his character as I understand it, wrapped it in my imagination then allowed him to speak for himself. I would like think that the words I have here put together in this interview are what my uncle would have said for himself.

I spent a long time listening to one man, he was not from Milton Keynes but had come here thinking he may be able to find help escaping sleeping on the streets. He had tried and failed to find help. He told me he was going back to the town from where he had come and if he then could not find help there was no point in living any longer.

This is a lovely story, a story of success. Taffy was a drug addeict and a rough-sleeper in Central Milton Keynes. Both the mayor of Milton Keynes and the mayor of Newport Pagnell let us down when we asked them to sign cards of love within our programme supporting families with a child sick in hospital. TAFFY DID NOT LET US DOWN. He signed many cards with some beautiful and inspirational messages, messages full of genuine love.

Taffy is no longer homeless and rough-sleeping. He kicked his drug habit and returned to live with his family. Recently he contacted us saying how well he was, sending love and best wishes to our projects.

TAFFY - you are a wonderful man. Every best wish for a long and happy life

We spend about 20 a week on both hot and cold drinks. Just four track sponsors would cover that. It would be lovely if we could add an energy drink to our packed teas.

STARS ON 45

People kindly donate items of clothing and more, writing paper, pens, sleeping bags and all kinds of things for our freebie box. It's the first thing guests check when they arrive at our lunch

However, when it comes to pants and socks we buy new.

We probably need to spend around 15 to 20 a week on new items for our freebie box. And with that CLICK THE TRACK ABOVE - who will sponsor that track !

DESIDERATA We spend about 40 a week on our packed tea. Each pack contains: Sandwiches, cake, doughnut. sausage roll, sweets. crisps, chocolate bar.

And so after nine hours of party music I come to play the last track - BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER by Simon and Garfunkel.

As The Geriatric DJ I bring you the early show Monday to Friday, 6am to 8am. That's ten hours of music every week. Now adding in LET'S PARTY I am playing something like FIFTY hours of music every month !

I have played music since I was a teenager and trust me that was a long time ago !  I like to think I "know" my music. BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER is the greatest piece of music ever written, sorry Mr Beethoven, sorry Mr Beethoven Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel beat you.

Take just the music and you have a beautiful, haunting theme. Divorce the words from the music and you are left with a powerful poem. Combine the two and you have the greatest piece of music ever composed.

When I was an undergraduate it was impossible to walk anywhere within the student halls of residence without hearing BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER coming from someone's room. Ever since those days I have always tried to live my life like a BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER. Our lunch of love is a bridge over troubled water for our guests. Listen to the track and YOU become a BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER - A BRIDGE OF LOVE.

BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER

Simon And Garfunkel

And so we come to the end of our July party.

PLEASE SPONSOR A TRACK

We will party again in August with the playlist open for sponsorship on

TUESDAY 14th July.
