David Sheppard

BBC Radio Devon's David Sheppard
BBC Radio Devon presenter David Sheppard

Originally from Berkshire, David has an obsession with his new home county that stems way back.

A self-confessed lover of all things on wheels, he owns a vintage Devon bus, as well as what he describes as "various lumps of the county's transport history".

All legitimately acquired, of course.

Since joining the BBC in 2002, David's voice has been bounced off transmitters in most corners of southern England and at most times of the day and night.

David's also appeared in some unlikely places, or at least his voice has.

For example as the invisible compere for Timmy Mallett's UK roadshow, as well as the voice of Richard Hammond's car radio on BBC Television's Top Gear.

His utter dependence on coffee was exposed and decaffeinated in BBC2's The Truth About Food in 2006.

David's also a big fan of real ale (especially milds) and lingers too long in the pickle aisle when shopping.

He joins Jo Loosemore each weekday afternoon for four hours of music, news and features including 'Cabbyoke' - the duo's attempt at getting the county's taxi drivers to serenade their passengers.
