Nightlife with Tony Delroy is eclectic and companionable talk radio at its best. From the cult quiz The Challenge to news, current affairs, advice and stimulating chat with guests from around Australia and the world; there's a lot to keep you awake into the smaller hours. Human and family issues, spiritual questions, inspiring stories, talks by best-selling authors, and experts in science, computers, finance and health are all part of the mix.

On May 26th, Tony spent the first hour of his show talking about the issue of domestic abuse of men - a situation that turns the traditional “male as the abuser, female as the victim” scenario on its head. Sadly, domestic abuse of men in Australia is regarded as significant, but hidden. A new report called Male Victims of Domestic Abuse was commissioned by the Men’s Advisory Network in Western Australia and over the last 18 months, researchers from Edith Cowan University have interviewed a range of people impacted by the abuse of men.

Joining Tony in the ABC's Perth studios were the Executive Officer of the Men’s Advisory Network, Gary Bryant, and Dr. Elizabeth Celi, a psychologist with experience of working with male victims.
