From 1999 until 2005, Shaun Tilley was the soundtrack to the afternoon rush hour across Liverpool, the North West and North Wales on Radio City. Now his Big Drive Home is back, weekdays between 4-7pm exclusively on Liverpool Live. You may have heard his voice elsewhere in the region too on Rock FM and nationally on Radio Luxembourg, Capital Gold and Magic plus the BBC’s My Radio 1 and Top of the Pops Playback series. Shaun was also one of the DJ’s behind the hugely successful Floorfillers compilation albums featuring the anthems he played at his weekly club nights. And he’ll be spinning those iconic dance tracks all over again during the final hour of his show every Friday.
