Dream Job: Radio Host on Amnesia Radio in Ibiza.

Irish born Tony Legend dreams of buying silver bullion and getting rich… he also has a dream job of hosting Amnesia Radio in Ibiza!

Tell us about the job you’re doing now?
I host Amnesia Radio on Tuesday and Thursday nights; Tonight Party and Cream Ibiza!

What’s the secret to doing your job really well?
Doing lots of extra work behind the scenes to secure permission to broadcast the best live sessions!

Who’s influenced you most in your life/career so far?
I listened to loads of radio growing up – DJ Fergie on BBC Radio 1, Annie Nightingale, even Chris Moyles. I guess that my radio presenting style reflects some of the people who I grew up listening too!

What is the biggest challenge you have now?
I’m getting married in Ibiza in October and paying for it!

What is the most exciting aspect of your work?
I get to interview some of the biggest artists, DJs and producers in the world twice a week!

Who was the most important person in your career and why?
Again I would have to mention former Radio 1 DJ Fergie, a fellow Northern Irishman who succeeded in radio and in the music industry as a whole. He helped me get my first Ibiza radio show in 2007 and his mum Alice was my sponsor. I am very grateful!

What do you know now that you wish you had known earlier in life?
Honestly? If I could go back even two years I would borrow $100,000, invest it all in silver bullion and I’d be a millionaire now! I have learnt some economics as I got older. It’s all about the silver!

Who has been the biggest influence on your life? What lessons did they teach you?
US Radio talk show host Alex Jones has changed my life over the past few years. His research, documentaries and radio shows have taught me so much, and opened my eyes to the real world and the way things really work!

Would your classmates from school be surprised at what you’re doing now?
Probably not at all whatsoever! Perhaps they would be slightly shocked that I am in Amnesia, Ibiza doing such crazy big interviews and shows, coming from a rural Irish farming village. But my schoolmates are not surprised that I am on the radio – my first ever “radio” shows started at break times in the drama suite at school!

Was there a teacher who had a particularly strong influence on your work life?
Yes my R.E. teacher Mr Crooks has so many degrees that all the letters after his name take up two lines on a page. He is a very, very intelligent man and his wisdom rubbed off on some of us! Or did it?

What school subjects were surprisingly helpful later on?
The year of Spanish that I took aged 13 has served me well! Although I wish I had spent five years learning Spanish not French.

Have you ever regretted something you didn’t do?
Yes I ignored advice to buy silver and gold when it was 90% cheaper than it is now. I SHOULD BE RICH!

What was the proudest moment of your life so far?
Perhaps interviewing Sven Vath on Cocoon Radio, or doing my first interview for national American Radio. Or perhaps pimping around Amnesia with six gorgeous models! It’s hard to say!
