About the programme

Tony joined BBC Radio Merseyside in December 1997. In the dim and distant past he's worked as a milkman and bricklayer but he eventually fulfilled his boyhood ambition of working in front of the microphone.

Snelly has interviewed people from all areas of the entertainment world from the legendary Tony Bennet to Bob Geldof and all in-between.

"The best stories always come from listeners though, real stories about real people," says Tony.
