Tory Radio first started in 2005 and was founded by Jonathan Sheppard who felt the grassroots of the Conservative Party needed to hear the voices of the people running and leading the party and acting on its behalf.


“Required listening if you want to get inside the minds of leading Conservatives. Jonathan Sheppard’s David Frost-like approach to interviewing is easy on the ear and he lulls his guests into a false comfort zone where they often reveal more than they had intended.” – Iain Dale

“Jonathan Sheppard is the David Frost of the Tory blogosphere. His gentle interviewing style for ToryRadio consistently produces more interesting results than the aggressive style of most contemporary journalists.” – Tim Montgomerie, Conservative Home

“A really worthwhile project” – Chris Grayling MP

“Enjoyed my time on Tory Radio. Fantastic idea. Hope it goes from strength to strength” – Grant Shapps MP

“Tory Radio is a very interesting concept. A novel way to communicate issues of concern to Conservatives across the country.” – Iain Duncan Smith MP

“Worth downloading for the low down.” – Guido Fawkes

    Your link in the first para on the homepage to scrapping EDMs doesn't work:
    "Campaign to Scrap EDMs continues
    The campaign to Scrap Early Day Motions has picked up a bit of press coverage. I may be on The World at One. In defence of EDMs I think they have spoken to Bob Russell MP and for the case against Roger Gale MP.

    For me it’s already been a success and a debate has been created. Lets hope something is done!"

    It's a simple error easily corrected.
