David grew up in Lincoln and started his musical journey as a chorister at St. Peter’s in Eastgate way back in the early 1960s.
Since then he has been involved in a number of musical ventures from hospital radio in London and Grimsby plus some freelance work for local radio to playing in local brass bands and even performing in the Falkland Islands.
He has dabbled in amateur dramatics but readily admits he can never remember his lines and is much better at ad libbing and backstage.
Back when music was music and a record was seven or twelve inches of vinyl, he ran a mobile disco, which has resulted in him having a large vinyl collection.
For over 35 years he worked a mental health nurse to pay the rent and raise a family, this took him to the USA, the Falkland Islands, London and a six month stint in Lincoln Prison but he had a key to get out each day and he has always had a home here in Lincolnshire.
Still happily married to Sharon (on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays – these being the days he is on the radio and she kicks him out of the house) she acts as his musical researcher – telling him what to play – he never argues, much. They have two daughters but they never listen to dad – children!!!! a granddaughter who thinks he is wonderful (born late 2014)and a grandson born in 2017.
