What do you aim to bring to Radio Leeds Afternoon Show?

Good Afternoon with Bob Walmsley is the most entertaining afternoon show on the dial. Join Bob for all the local, national, and international news from the entertainment world. The show is packed with special guests from film, television, and theatre. And with its daily combination of the best new music and modern classics, there really is no better way to spend your afternoon.

Favourite On-Air moment?

I confronted a rogue tradesman live from a building site to ask why he was ripping off his customers. From his reaction I suspect he wasn't too pleased to see me!"1

Favourite interview and why?

Stuart Hall.....Legend

Most embarrasing moment and why?

Standing in a busy town centre asking passers by to "Sniff My Towels"......don't even ask!

Favourite TV/Radio/Webpage

I'm Alan Partridge - as far as radio presenters go, there's definately a little of Alan in all of us all.

The James Whale Show - he makes you want to tune in, even if it's just to hate him.

Brief career history

After a number of short-lived job placements in dishwashing, factory-packing, and time-share, I began my radio career working on Jim Bowen's Happy Daft Farm on BBC Radio Lancashire. Once I had learnt all I could from the Bullseye legend I attempted to upstage him on my own afternoon show. However, the lure of the south's bright lights drew me to the cultural capital of the country....Luton. Here, I produced the award winning Stephen Rhodes Consumer Programme on BBC Three Counties Radio, whilst presenting my weekend breakfast show Wake Up To Walmsley.
