They're Off! Billy presents music, guests and more laughs with the Saturday morning racing game.

When Billy's not entertaining thousands of listeners, you're likely to see him at your local car boot sale. He's an avid collector of records, comics, sheet music, TV and Radio Times magazines and old TV show videos. His other great passion is Everton Football Club, but always "football fan first, Evertonian second."

His original, and energetic style has earned him countless fans and awards. Most notably Billy has been the winner of five Scouseology awards and his popular radio quiz show 'Hold Your Plums' was a Sony Bronze award winner.
