Whatever your views on the topics of the day, Roger Phillips on BBC Radio Merseyside is the person to call.

12pm-2pm every weekday on 95.8FM.

Never far from controversy, invariably compassionate, frequently infuriating, arguably intelligent and above all unique.. and that's just Roger! With a reputation like this it's no wonder Roger's phone-in is essential daily listening for thousands of Merseysiders.

Roger Phillips listening to callers

Regarded by many as the country's top 'devil's advocate', Roger Phillips has the unenviable task of getting callers to defend their views. "Everyone has an opinion about everything and we're never short of people who want to express their views on the phone-in ... they are definitely never backward in coming forward on Merseyside!"

Roger has lived and worked on Merseyside since the early 1970's. Before he began presenting the Radio Merseyside Lunchtime Phone-in programme, he had a variety of jobs, from a salesman for a graphic designer, to an actor in the West End and Liverpool's Everyman Theatre.
