I'm Tony Richards, I host the Mixed Nuts show and I'm also an occasional presenter on the Sound & Vision Film Show.
I work for the British Film Institute as a Conservation Specialist. I have a passion for films & music and this is reflected in the playlists I put together for the Mixed Nuts show. Which is an eclectic mix of Film soundtracks, Library music, funk, TV themes, Indie, rock, rarities & the weird. All very groovy.

As you can tell I enjoy watching films at the cinema, especially our local ones, The Empire, The Rex & The Odyssey. Shopping at second hand clothes stores for 70's style shirts & jackets. Live gigs & concerts are a must. Plus fine whiskies & real ales. What more could one ask for? (lifts eyebrow in a Roger Moore style ;)
