David has been a broadcaster for many years and a pirate radio fan for even longer. Taking his broadcasting inspiration from the watery wireless days - particularly Radio London, David can't wait to jump shore!

David was born in North Yorkshire but moved to Norfolk in 1963. He was educated at Great Yarmouth Grammar School. He began broadcasting with BBC Radio Norfolk when the station opened in September 1980, as a freelance presenter. His Sunday morning shows achieved the highest audience figures, ever for the station.

In 1983 he joined the staff, full time, to present the mid morning Norfolk Airline magazine programme with fellow broadcaster, Neil Walker. The programme won a Sony Award for the Best Magazine Programme in 1986, beating network competition. This lead to the pair being offered the Local Network series on Radio 4 which they produced and presented for four years. The series used the expertise of the BBC's local radio stations to cover national stories, everything from planning gain to naturism; from regional airports to regional humour. David and Neil covered the length and breadth of the British Isles making a total of 112 programmes for the network.

While appearing on Radio Norfolk, David spent time working on Look East, the regional TV news programme. He was regularly seen on breakfast news shifts as well. He also presented a series on collecting for East on Two.

After his time with Radio 4, David re-joined BBC Radio Norfolk in 1992 as the Deputy Manager, taking charge of the station's programming in 1997.
