Wally 2013

 

Age 65, born in Eccles in 1945. Wally’s father met and married his Austrian mother at the end of the war.

He has two older brothers and has been married three times.

He has three children and three grandchildren.

Wally has worked as a night club DJ, been a reporter and a hospital DJ. He served in the RAF for 11 years and was stationed at RAF Coltishall from 1974–1980.

Wally gets up at 2.30am five mornings a week to present his BBC Radio Norfolk Breakfast Show. He is on six stations, from Lincolnshire to Kent, and answers emails from fans all around the world.

Wally is partly the inspiration for Alan Partridge and takes it all in good humour. He owns a boat and a Lambretta and loves DIY.

“It doesn’t matter how famous you are, how good-looking you are, you’ve only got that one life and you don’t know when its gonna stop. If you are a billionaire there are still only 24 hours in one day.

“Getting older is great, each day I strive to achieve something… I try to keep active in both body and mind. I like mixing with the younger generation, even they can teach you something!”
