Tony Edwards

 

Tony has spent 37 years of his working life teaching at Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School before retiring over four years ago. He has occupied himself in retirement in a whole range of pastimes with his wife Kay including walking his Parson's Russell dog; Meg, touring in their caravan, cooking, singing and gardening, along with his and Kay's greatest passion.....Attending Steampunk events!

In the past, Tony has been involved with DJing in a Manchester nightclub and at various venues in the valley and beyond, along with compering charity events. About ten years ago Tony got the radio bug when he did a two year stint broadcasting with Burnley Hospital Radio and so when Rossendale Radio launched last December, he applied, trained and was luckily accepted as a broadcaster. Due to his commitments to other activities away from the radio, Tony is a stand-in for broadcasting colleagues taking a break from their regular shows. He does say that he absolutely loves the challenge and variety that this position brings....Although the 5.15am alarm when presenting the Breakfast Show can be a little bit testing!

Tony is so excited by the way the station has developed in such a relatively short space of time and looks forward to getting involved with further opportunities that the amazing station will be presenting in the very exciting future!
