1pm - Mum's The Word

Phill's Mum Lou recites some song lyrics in her North Devon accent but what is the song and who sang it?


Phill also makes it his business to talk to community groups, charities, youth groups and other organisations to give them the chance to publicize themselves and any events they have coming up. If you fancy having a chat on Radio Ashford Daytimes - email and those details will be passed to Phill for him to contact you.


About Phill

Phill was born in Devon but moved to Kent with his family when he was just five years old.

He joined hospital radio, purely as a vinyl librarian, back in the summer of 1993 but by the end of the year had well and truly caught the bug and is very happy to be able to call Radio Ashford his "day job"

In his spare time Phill masquerades around some of the local hostelries running quiz nights. He is married to Liz and they love spending time with family and friends and more often than not can be found with a craft beer in his hand.
