Tony Froud and his "Lunchbox Jokers"
The person behind the face behind the voice behind the microphone - get to know our talented presenters.
Introducing Tony Froud - presenter of two programs early in the week, Monday Lunchbox (Monday 12pm - 2pm) and Jokers Wild (Tuesday 9am - 11am). Tony has had two stints on air at Radio Mansfield - the first from 2009 until 2014, and the second from December 2021 until today (and beyond we hope, Tony!)
Tell us Tony, if you could invite three artists (dead or alive) to a BBQ, who would they be and why?
1. Buddy Holly. Because in 1959 my 'crowd' were all a lot younger and we were devastated by his premature death. It would be a chance to talk to him and show him how his music shaped rock over the years.
2. Dolly Parton. Because not only is she a great singer - she would be the life and soul of the party!
3. My father. A classical musician, talented on many instruments and trained in the British military. He disliked Rock n' Roll intensely! A chance to show him modern music isn't so bad. He died in 1963.
