Emotional farewell as Phil Williams leaves BBC Radio 5 Live


Phil Williams presented his last show on BBC Radio 5 Live last night.

It means the end of an 18 year career at the station, where he’s worked across the schedule, from breakfast, to late nights.

He told listeners last night that 5live had been “an incredible place to work, full of lovely, talented people.”

Of all his memories, he said that his favourite moment was in 2002, when he met the Rolling Stones.
