BROADCAST RADIO CAREER
I have had a passionate interest in broadcast radio since I was a young teenager.
A successful club and event DJ, I trained at industrial radio station UBN and entered broadcast radio in the late 70’s as a radio presenter for several radio stations including Ward Radio in London where I was appointed Chairman in 1979. I was responsible managerially and editorially for all on-air programming together with overseeing sound engineering, fundraising & training. I proudly remain an Honorary Chairman today.
I then went on to become a presenter at Chiltern Radio, serving Herts, Beds, Bucks, Northants and others with my 'Tony Lloyd Late Show', featuring the popular 'Midnight Magic' romantic half hour.
I was promoted to Drive Show presenter in 1990, at the same time presenting the 'Top 20 Countdown', and going on to work at the station for ten years. In addition I also broadcast on Invicta SuperGold, Severn Sound and launched SuperGold, Horizon Radio and The Hot FM.
I currently present several shows on different stations (see home page), and produce the 'Human Stories' podcast series amongst other things!
OTHER MEDIA WORK
As an experienced broadcast media trainer for 40 years, I have taught thousands of individuals, public, commercial, volunteering and third sector groups on how to handle radio and television interviews, designing courses to fit the student’s career requirements.
Using that experience I create podcasts and produce films for clients of all types.
A professional photographer, film maker & sound engineer for 35 years as well means I am always busy !
