About Mr David Sibbald BA Hons

Former teacher and now radio presenter.

A Scot from Edinburgh, David started his career in the Newsroom at Radio Clyde in Glasgow after university, but the lure of teaching Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and French was too great to resist. He later owned his own restaurant in Harrogate, but returned to teaching until his retirement.

Since then David has worked on local radio and the internet, providing programmes on music from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and a recent interest – country music.

David loves meeting people from all walks of life and is frequently invited to talk to groups locally and on cruises.
