David Smith

David began his radio life as a behind the scenes man at BBC Radio Shropshire.
A five year spell doing the early breakfast show and travel news at BBC Radio Leeds soon followed where he chased UFOs and ghosts on Ilkley Moor in a live all night broadcast.  
In November 2007, he joined BBC Radio Gloucestershire, in a move he describes as 'the best I've ever made' - they clearly didn't know what they were getting! 
David is a proud resident of Brockworth and has a great passion for the countryside.
In September 2008, He put his nautical skills to the test when he took a narrowboat down the Severn and Gloucester and Sharpness Canal - broadcasting along the way and only crashing the boat once! 
This was described as an experience never to be repeated - but you never know, he could be persuaded. 
Off the radio, David is a passionate, some might say obsessive, fan of Shrewsbury Town. 
He continues to act under the delusion that they will one day be a success. 
He is also gadget mad and can often be found pressing buttons on computers in an attempt to 'improve' things, and cowering in the engineer's office like a naughty schoolboy when it all goes wrong.
