Neil Appleby has always been fascinated with radio from the time he and his twin brother set up their own 'studio' at home and broadcast to each others' bedrooms. 'I joined 3MBS in 1994 after thinking about it for about 15 years and worked on various programs before settling on Wednesday Intermezzo which I presented for 4 years.'

In 2001 he left Australia to work overseas, teaching in Kuwait and then Hong Kong, before returning to Australia and to 3MBS in 2011. Neil currently presents Friday Intermezzo.

He is passionate about classical music and becomes a crazy man in winter following his beloved Collingwood Football club. He lives with his partner and their dog in inner city Melbourne.
