Shaun Tilley's Swansea Sound Countdown

Shaun Tilley started his broadcasting career at Swansea Sound in 1986. Back in those days he co-presented our Sunday afternoon youth programme and then progressed to some overnight shows as we began 24 hour broadcasting.


Following a move to London later in the year, Shaun went on to work at Capital Radio, Radio Caroline and BBC World Service before he became the youngest national DJ since our very own Kid Jensen to land a job at Radio Luxembourg. He also co-hosted the station's last ever show on its legendary 208 frequency in 1991.


In 1993, he returned to Swansea Sound to present our weekend Breakfast Show and following a stint at Radio Clyde in Glasgow, he became the first presenter on our sister station 96.4FM The Wave when it launched on the 30th September 1995.


More recently, Shaun has broadcast on stations in each of the UK's Top 10 biggest cities including Radio City in Liverpool, Manchester's Piccadilly Radio and a return to national radio for five years on Capital Radio's Gold Network in London. In 2012, his contribution to broadcasting was recognised in two BBC Radio 2 documentaries when Shaun was interviewed by Noel Edmonds and Paul Gambaccini.


You might also catch him on BBC Four Television now and again as his face regularly appears on the Top of the Pops 'Story Of' series and he also presents the programme Top of the Pops Playback.


And now he's thrilled to be back home again with us on Swansea Sound. Every Saturday between 6-10pm, he'll be playing South West Wales' Top 20 biggest hits from this week in FOUR different years on The Swansea Sound Countdown!
