Join Phil Parry as part of our weeknight sport line up on BBC LONDON 94.9

"I started broadcasting for a small radio station on the outskirts of London doing everything from fixing things(badly) to fronting weekend breakfast shows.

From there I moved to Norfolk where I became famous (in my local) but embarrased myself during a charity football match.

The call of London proved too strong so I returned to the capital hoping to become a millionaire.

I eventually switched sides to the BBC where I can now be heard getting excited in press boxes, hassling people at training grounds and troubling listeners to sports shows on BBC London.

I was given no choice but to fall in love with sport, my dad said it was either that or moving out.I was two and a half at the time.

Since then I've watched and talked about all sorts of sport so much I must have bored many a new found friend at the bar.

It may surprise some people to find out I have a life too. My pride and joy is my young daughter (who's already onto her second replica kit) and if I'm not working or spending family time there's nothing better than sticking my nose in a book while listening to music.

I've been lucky enough to meet many of my icons including Stan Bowles, Gareth Edwards and Mick Jones but I'm still waiting to catch up with Hong Kong Phoey.

I've had too many great experiences as part of my job to mention but there have been lows too including a cheese and onion pie at a lowly northern football ground which I can't mention for legal reasons."

Phil Parry is part of BBC London 94.9's five-nights-a-week sports line-up.

Phil will be joined by guests from the world of sport and looking for your comments on the day's top stories.
