Wexford, a legend in his own lifetime! He hails from Screen and says he was a lovely little chap when he was at school….what happened!

He is an avid music lover with over 15,000 CDs in his collection to prove it. His favourite music is Calipso and with his huge interest in music that it was only natural Tony would find himself in a career that had music at its core. He started his radio career in 1983 in Georges Street Wexford.
