Owen presents Money For Nothing on Saturday mornings.
Born in Merthyr Tydfil, Owen grew up in the South Wales Valleys. He started his career in show business as a bass guitarist and lead singer with the pop group The Bystanders, who had hits in the 1960s on the Pye label.
In the 1970s his flair for comedy was spotted, and he formed the comedy band Tomfoolery, which became one of the UK's most successful comedy show bands, often topping the bill at Blackpool South Pier.
In 1987 Owen Money made his debut on Radio Wales with his weekly programme Money For Nothing. His popularity steadily increased and in 1997 Owen won two prestigious Sony Gold Awards, one for regional broadcaster of the year, and the other for best music sequence programme.
In addition to his broadcasting on Radio Wales Owen hosted the talent show Just Up Your Street on BBC One Wales.
Owen was awarded the MBE in the 2007 new year's honours list.
