David Wimble

Anything can happen on DW's Request Show, and it usually does!

David started out as a mobile DJ using a 200watt disco consul with Garrard sp25 turn tables, but his interest in radio started from an early age when he first heard Kenny Everett on Radio 1! His zany sense of humour and comic timing were genius and this had a profound affect on David and has definately influenced his style of presenting.

During David's varied career he gained a lot of experience at the BBC, then went on to work with Jounglers Comedy Clubs helping to create the careers of many household names we are familiar with today. He has been fortunate to travel the world suppling major hotels, venues and cruiseships with top quality artists through his successful entertainment agency.  He says "I have been humbled by the many great people I have had the pleasure to work with and interview along the way, a highlight being Bill Clinton on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 cruiseliner. But creating DELUX Radio has become my passion and I hope, will be my greatest achievement to date".

But what makes David happiest is being at home in Kent with his partner Annabel and their dog Teddy, where he records his shows from his beachfront home with a beautiful view of the English Channel. David says "I think you can tell I love my radio… and in the words of Kenny Everett ‘I prefer Radio to Television…because the pictures are better!"
