David Chatten-Smith

Programme Controller, Founder and Chair Person and Volunteer Presenter

I started my journey in to entertainment when i was just 15, running my own mobile disco with the help of my dad to drive me to gigs. I have worked on a number of holiday parks, Cruise ships, been a sound engineer for Walt Disney World, and been an entertainments manager in the Middle East forThe Marot group. I’ve been interested in radio for as long as I can remember, Even recording pretend radio shows onto cassette tapes when I was younger. I became blind in 2005 after being struck down with meningitis. I love the power that music has to evoke memories, lift our mood on a difficult day and make us feel good instantly. I currently present with Fay (my lovely wife) on the Monday Afternoon Show and Charlotte on the Wednesday Afternoon Show 2pm till 4pm, we have a great laugh talking about local news and events. Each week we invite guests on our show to talk to us about what they do.
