Phill Bird

Phil Bird presents ‘something a little bit different’ live on Sunday evenings from 20:00 until 22:00; as well as ‘pedals pipes and pistons’ (an organ-music show) on the third Sunday of the month at 15:00   which is a passion as he’s also a church organist in Cheltenham.  Phill also presents ‘Something a Little Bit Vinyl’ on Tuesday evenings from 20:00 for two hours; with guests invited into the studio to spin their (old) 33s, 45s and 78s. All shows feature chat, hand-picked music and a joie de vivre!  (many current & previous shows, including ‘after eight’ & Hey Winchcombe! are available on ‘listen again’ here on the website).

Phill grew up in Cheltenham and has lived and worked in the West Midlands, Warwickshire, London, West Sussex, France &  The Canary Islands; though has always been drawn back here to the beautiful North Cotswolds.

Phill’s interests are holistic health, gardening & foragingwhich keeps him busy. As does his passion for public transport, reading, sleeping, healthy eating, red wine, listening to the radio & most styles of music (he hasn’t had a TV for many years).  Oh, and sunshine!  He’s an active volunteer on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway as well as here at Radio Winchcombe.

Favourite Phill quote – “Experience is not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you”. (Aldous Huxley)

An interesting Phill fact – He is quite possibly the only radio presenter in the world who has been ‘shot dead’ by both a Dalek and a Sontaran! (whilst acting on Dr Who).
