Timothy Breen

Tim is a member and volunteer at 96.5 Inner FM and until recently presented "Tiny Tim's Favourites".

Born in Croydon, Surrey UK in 1942, Tim was educated in Croydon and some of his famous classmates were Roger Parfitt (Status Quo), Keith Moon (Drummer from Who) and Ray Davis (Kinks). Tim was a mobile DJ in 1977 and worked in nightclubs at weekends in Rhodesia, where he became popular as “Tiny Tim”. He auditioned for radio and had his own show as “Our Man in London, Tiny Tim”, playing the hits. With another DJ partner, Tim opened Tramps nightclub but when his partner was taken in a car accident, Tramps was closed and he built Scamps, which was the first multi racial nightclub in Zimbabwe. Tim worked with artists Bob Marley, UB40, Jimmy Cliff and Osibisa at his club. He worked on television with “Sounds of Our Time”. He left Africa after 10 years, during which time he also served in the army.

Returning to England, Tim managed nightclubs in the UK for Mecca and worked with such artists as U2, Simple Minds, Kinks, ACDC, Boy George, Kim Wilde, Alison Moyer, Kid Creole, Duran Duran, Men at Work, Human League, Pet Shop Boys, Cure, Ian Dury, Toyua, Darryl and Oakes, Tears for Fears and many more at the Lyceum. He also returned to his trade as an electrician.

Tim migrated to Australia in 1985, again working as an electrician in Sydney. He has lived in Tasmania for the past 8 years and recently moved to Ringwood with his new wife, Robyn. He was a DJ with Tamar FM 95.3 in George Town, Tasmania, hosting three shows per week “Tiny Tim Playing the Hits”. He gained sponsorship, coverage and a following in the Tamar Valley and also trained at WAY FM 98.1 in Launceston before moving to Melbourne.
