Bill Tilford has been listening to music from all over the world since childhood, and as a brass musician and keyboardist, he tried his hand at playing much of it as well.  In more recent years, he began writing about music for various outlets, including for the website Timba.com, which is dedicated to Cuban music, and he also returned to radio, an activity from his youth, to help present new recordings that are out of the mainstream on the air.   
Bill established Tilford Productions LLC to help bring his favorite music (jazz, Cuban, other world) to the world.  He is a voting member of NARAS and LARAS, and in addition to his own radio shows, he has been a guest on radio or TV in Canada, the US, Colombia, Cuba and Argentine Antarctica (Base Esperanza station LRA 36).
