Phil Price with his wife Adelaida

Phil is not only one of our newest presenters at Radio Clatterbridge but he was also one of the first!

He first joined the station in 1973 and has now returned to where it all began.

Phil originally joined station president Roger Hazlewood, Dave Williams and Brian Sumner to begin the first regular broadcasting to patients at Clatterbridge Hospital on Saturdays.

He still remembers presenting The Saturday Variety Show, a mixture of music popular at the time, for a number of years.

Phil has also presented some guest programmes over the years on Manchester's Piccadilly Radio and Cool FM in Benidorm.

"I really love radio! I always listened to Radio Caroline and Radio London in the 60s. I also love music, and wanted to play some of my favourite tracks."

Friendly and easy-going, he loves listening to and sharing his knowledge of pop music from the 1950s to present.

He especially loves Northern Soul and Motown music, as well as the hits of the 1960s.

But it was a star of the 1970s and 80s who really left an impression on him.

"I met Olivia Newton-John in Liverpool many years ago after her performance at the Shakespeare Club. She actually offered me a lift in her car after the show too!"

An examination invigilator by day, Phil runs a website for 1960s international cabaret artist and vocalist Valerie Masters.

Phil and Dhel enjoying their new life together

Phil's wife Adelaida is from the Philippines meaning he's adding travel to the Far East to his usual haunts across Europe.

"As Adelaida is from the Philippines, I really enjoy the food she makes from home. She is an excellent cook!"

Recently married, both with grown up children, he says he is enjoying their new life together.
