The Friday Session Introducing...
On-air and online every Friday night from 1800 GMT

On this week's Friday Session, there's live music from the Bewdley musician Monster! Monster!

Herefordshire's Lisbee Stainton launches her brand new album, and lands a support slot with Joan Armatrading.

In our Music Map this week, we look back to the time the Rolling Stones headlined Kidderminster Town Hall.

It's the Friday Session Introducing... The Music Map success stories from 6pm, 100% local music from 7pm, with Andrew Marston on BBC Hereford & Worcester.

In our Music Map hour this week, we look back to the time when the Rolling Stones played Kidderminster.

It was one of the most expensive gigs ever staged at the Town Hall, costing 8/6 to get in.

They also performed at the Hillside Ballroom in Hereford.
