Roy, who was an on-air presence every weekday on Radio Wales from 1985, now takes to the airwaves every Sunday morning. The change came as BBC Radio Wales launched a new schedule in September 2012

Talking about the move, the Sony award-winning broadcaster said, in his inimitable style:

"Life is a circle. My flirtation with the BBC began 32 years ago as a once-a-week arrangement and the 27 years of full five-days-a-week broadcasting that followed was something to behold. The relationship with the listeners was the wondrous topping on the trifle as the years unfolded. Now I'm returning to a once-a-week inspiring interlude and I hope it will make the complete circle entirely golden."

BBC Radio Wales Editor Steve Austins said:
"Roy has been a part of people's weekday listening for more than a quarter of a century - it feels as though he's always been there and his voice is synonymous with Wales. He'll be a tough act to follow but I'm delighted his relationship with BBC Radio Wales will continue on his new Sunday morning show."

You can hear Roy Noble's show every Sunday morning at 10.30 AM.
