The latest monthly meeting of the Gainsborough and District Ladies Luncheon Club welcomed an entertaining appearance from former Radio Lincolnshire presenter Dave Bussey.

Dave was born and grew up in Norfolk before joining the Royal Navy in 1968 where he trained as an electrician preparing for his two year stint on the Ark Royal.

His radio career began in Scotland where he worked on several different stations before moving to BBC Radio Two. These BBC regional stations preceeded his move to Radio Lincolnshire where he became an early morning favourite on The Breakfast Show, replacing former presenter John Inverdale.

Dave remained with Radio Lincolnshire for 21 years while also doing radio and TV voice over work.

Since moving on in 2008 he has worked at Lincoln University, teaching those who are keen to follow a similar path, and also running radio projects at local schools.

Lincolnshire is still home to Dave who lives in Willingham-by-Stow.

In his talk, Dave gave an insight into how a radio show is prepared and how the presenter fills a day, explaining that a three-hour programme takes around nine hours to prepare.

He also discussed the list of things not to dicuss on air - at the top of which were religion and politics.

His talk was interspersed with jokes inspired by listeners who had written or called in starting chain reactions from other listeners.
