About Us

Julie and Dave Astbury's Page


Julie        David


David and Julie have been married for 27 years and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.  Julie has lived in Runcorn all her life and works at Halton Hospital, in the physiotherapy department.  David originally came from the Crewe area and works as a support worker

They were looking for something they could do as a couple, both had a love of music and enjoy working with people.  Radio Halton was an ideal way to combine both of these and they have a show on a Monday evening 7.00 - 9.00.  They play an eclectic mix of music but both enjoy 60's music, Julie's favourite group being the Beatles and David's Foster and Allen

A highlight achievement for them both is interviewing Foster and Allen -

Mick Foster and Tony Allen were kind enough to do an interview for Radio Halton Foster and Allen and The Astburysduring their show at the Brindley Theatre on 22 November 2016.  They were interviewed by David and Julie Astbury for their Monday evening show

Foster and Allen have had a career which has spanned over 40 years and are the only group in the world to have had over 30 albums in the charts. They were just two lovely guys to interview and we wish them all future success in their continued career

The interview was broadcast
on Monday 12 December 2016 and you can hear the jingle they kindly did for Julie and David to use on air here
