Broadcaster and author ...

 

A writer and broadcaster, Tony Currie has worked in and written about radio, television and the recording business for thirty-five years.

His varied career has taken him from the seventh-floor heights of the Independent Television Commission, for whom he was Controller of Programmes (Cable), to the lower decks of shipborne Radio Northsea International; from a twelve year stint as Scottish Television's senior announcer and newscaster to a year hosting the Europe Top 40 on Ukranian state radio, in spite of being beaten nearly to death by the Mafia in Kiev!

A regular contributor to almost every media paper from TV Times to the Times Educational Supplement, his books include The Concise History of British Television and his recent The Radio Times Story. Tony has been on the staff of BBC Scotland for the last eight years, doing all manner of things from reading the news on the radio to choosing the music for late night transmissions of CEEFAX pages.

He also produces records for his own label, and as a "hobby" (he gets bored easily) he runs a radio station - www.radiosix.com - playing music by unsigned bands to listeners in nearly 70 countries on the Internet and via high power shortwave transmitters in Italy.
