The travelling bug was further satisfied with my own spell in the forces which took me on special duties tours to the Middle East and NATO.

I finally tired of the "orderly" life and left the RAF in 1986 trying my hand at selling (insurance not very successfully and property rather better).

By the late 1980s I was living a curious double life - Managing Director of a new homes division during the day and Radio Station "gofor" during the evenings (Radio Trent in Nottingham).

Eventually, I made my way full time into radio as a freelance sports reporter covering a range of sports for national networks including an entire European Golf Tour.

That led to my first full time news job at Lincs FM when the station opened in 1992. After two years as News Editor there, I moved to IRN/ITN in London for a spell helping to run the national sports desk.

In 1995 I opted for quality of life and came back to Lincolnshire to join BBC Radio Lincolnshire and to marry my girlfriend from Lincs FM, Jeannie. Aaaah.

Since then, I've enjoyed a spell working on TV - East Midlands Today and News 24 and worked in a variety of roles at the radio station culminating in my current spell on Breakfast.
