Richard Green is the host of weekday afternoons on BBC Radio Devon.

Join him between 2pm and 5pm for a lively affair with contributions from lots of BBC Radio Devon staff, as well as a sneaky peak into Listeners' Lives with "My Life in 10 Questions".

"It doesn't matter who you are - you'll be asked the same questions. Some personal, some thought-provoking, and some straightforward - so over the course of the year BBC Radio Devon will hear from everyone from the humble housewife right through to some of the most famous people in the entertainment industry."

If you'd like to feature on My Life in 10 Questions, please fill in the contact form below, and Richard will be in touch soon.

Not only is Richard BBC Radio Devon's afternoon presenter, he also presents a regular 80's programme, featuring great music, guests and nostalgia from the decade.

The 80's Show airs at 6pm on Wednesdays on BBC Radio Devon.

"It's a great show - the perfect way to start the weekend," he says.

"It feels like 'home' for me and I know that - for many people - the music I play will resonate with them and bring the memories flooding back."

HISTORY

"I started my career in broadcasting in the early 80's and was lucky enough to present on another BBC station which allowed me not only to interview, but also meet many of the stars of the decade when celebrities were somewhat more approachable than today," says Richard.

"For example, I can remember getting horribly drunk with Fish from Marillion and sending OMD to a dodgy nightclub after a gig in Hampshire!"

It was during his time in Southampton that Richard also got involved in the Sports programming.

"It was great!

"I worked on music, the chart run down and local youth issues during the week and then followed my sporting teams on a Saturday - what could have been better?"

Eventually Richard transferred to the 'other side' - commercial radio in Hampshire - where he remained part of the presentation and sports team for many years before Capital Radio took him on as drive time presenter.

Moves followed to Devon and Cornwall radio stations, as well as national exposure with ITN.

"The bosses at BBC Radio Devon decided to bring me on board in 1998 to front the sports team and after nine years in charge of the output, I was ready for a new challenge.

"The Afternoon show combined with The 80's Show is certainly that." he says.
