Robbie James

Robbie has you covered weekdays from 3pm with a whole load of fun on the way home! As well as just great songs and relatable stories, Robbie plays 'Twitter Tennis' - the game that tests your celebrity name knowledge, and 'Up & Down' - the game that slows down songs or speeds them up & you have to guess them!

Robbie will also have exclusive interviews with your favourite artists & comedians from around Portsmouth (or even the world...now we're talking). 

And don't forget, from 6pm it's the Express Rewind! Can you guess the year?       

About Robbie

My love for radio started when I was 14 years old and would practice talking into my phone for hours on end (some life huh...) - I loved the opportunity radio gave to connect people and make someone's day that little bit better. I then went to Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh for two years studying Economics, where I started student radio. Since then, I've moved back to my home of Hampshire, to pursue radio, and help your journey home! I also DJ, host events, and present the odd bit of telly (I know...I'll need a lot of makeup for that).    

Favourite Song - Ugh...this is a tough one to start with - it completely depends what mood I'm in! For meaning and importance, I would have to say 'Imagine' by John Lennon - but don't get me wrong I love all music, old and new, and all genres. 

Favourite Gig - I saw a small band called Picture This in Edinburgh last year after I did an interview with them - they were very special, I've never seen a gig with such a bond between the crowd and the band. It wasn't a big gig or a big band, but it was excellent.

Favourite Film - I apologise if you're reading this in any month other than December - but Home Alone 1 & 2 - so silly but so brilliant.

Favourite Place In Portsmouth - Southsea Seafront - very tempted to pitch a tent there and live in it forever.
