Tony Windsor

1920 - 1985

Having climbed to a position as one of Australia's top broadcasters, Tony's appearance on the BBC Light Programme was uneventful. It was not until the advent of offshore radio that he made his UK breakthrough, notably on the Radio London ship where Kenny Everett credited him as his mentor.

His nickname 'TW' and his deep, resonant two-tone opening call of “Hel-lo” made him one of the giants of the era and won him a faithful audience.

Always willing share his experience with new broadcasters, he was responsible for recruiting the young Noel Edmonds to Radio Luxembourg.
