Tony Myatt (born 7, July 1938) is a UK radio presenter. He has previously worked at the BBC, on Channel 4, on Jazz FM, on Capital Radio, on PrimeTime Radio, Radio Mercury and on Saga DAB radio stations.


He is credited by many as the first man to play Kate Bush on the radio and also interviewed her 'live' on his Capital Radio show.[no citations needed here]

Tony hosted Beat the Intro telephone quiz on Capital Radio in 1974/1975 whereby listeners were asked the name of the piece of music before the singing started.

In the early to mid 80s, Tony hosted a request show on BBC World Service radio called the Tony Myatt Request Show. Listeners wrote in to request songs and dedications. This show was also hosted by Sandi Jones (aptly called theSandi Jones Request Show). The two presenters used to take turns for almost a quarter each, alternately.

Tony most recently presented the pre-recorded overnight show on 102.2 Smooth Radio in London for two years, replaced by networked output from Manchester in March 2009.
