Tony has been fascinated by a radio since he listened to crackly shortwave broadcasts as a boy.
He started in hospital radio as a teenager.
"Over the years I've broadcast on various commercial and BBC stations around the UK. In the mid 80s I regularly presented the early breakfast show on BBC Radio 2," he says.
Tony now produces shows, including Gillham Gold, from his home studio, basing the content on his own collection of more than 5,000 CDs which contain over 50,000 chart hits.
Saturday between 9am and 12pm is your chance to take a step back to the music of the 1960s, 70s and 80s with Tony, right here on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.
