I was so pleased and honoured being asked to be part of the team at this radio station.... it was like coming home for me as I had lived and worked in the Exmouth area for around twenty years and know the area well (and many of its people too!).
I still have a great fondness for the area and pay regular visits even though I reside on the Devon/Cornwall border.
Although I had not been in the radio business for a few years until joining (what was then Bay FM), it was something I had always missed.
I started my radio career as a volunteer at Hospital Radio in Exeter and then moved on to BBC Radio Devon in Exeter and Plymouth presenting programmes at either end of the day over a period of around twenty years.
I also worked in commercial radio at Orchard FM in Taunton (along with Jeremy Kyle)...,. yes him! , and also Lantern FM in Bideford.
Having done every aspect of broadcasting, it was so good to be part of what I call "grass roots radio".
My belief being that local radio should be there to give a voice to the community and wanted to focus on that and things that were happening around the area.
The program I present every Sunday morning (10 till 12), features local guests chatting about local things both serious and not so serious plus a sprinkling of music, features and hopefully some cheery banter.
The magic date for me was Sunday 11th October 2015, which is when I first took to the Exmouth airwaves, with my very first guest being......have a guess!
