Brian Tansley presented a vintage pop and rock and roll programme on Leicester Sound on Wednesday nights in the mid 1980's. Following GEM AM's launch in 1988, he took the programme there and became one of their regular daytime presenters as well.

He left GEM AM in 1998 and moved to presenting on BBC Radio Nottingham, as well as also presenting BBC East Midlands news on television.

He left the BBC in 2003 and moved to a company specialising in producing magazines for clients such as the FA.

He returned to radio in 2012 with a slot on internet service Solid Gold GEM AM, which features many of the former GEM AM presenters

Sadly, Brian passed away on March 22nd 2013
