As reported on AboutMyArea earlier this month, Stephen, of Bridge Street, Neston, competed in the BBC Radio 4 quiz Counterpoint, which seeks to find the station's musical mastermind.
After 13 weeks of pitting his musical wits against other contestants, Stephen eventually emerged as this year's champion in the Final broadcast on Monday December 15.
The show had actually been taped a week or so beforehand, so the secret of his win had to be held close until after the broadcast.
The quiz is hosted by veteran broadcaster Paul Gambaccini and covers a broad range of musical genres, from classic to film scores and pop.
