Richard Gunton

    Thanks for visiting my page. I've been fortunate to have been with Radio Plymouth since it's launch making me the longest serving presenter on the station. I genuinely love being on air in Plymouth. I'm a Plymstock based, born and bred Plymothian.

    I grew up listening to Plymouth Sound and spent hours, from the age of 7, recording and sending demo tapes to everyone who I thought may give me a break. Some years later I was fortunate enough to get into radio broadcasting in New Zealand where I lived for a number of years. Home was always the West Country so I returned to Plymouth and was thrilled to be invited to be a part of the Radio Plymouth family.

    LOCAL LISTEN
    If you are a local band or busker and have radio quality recordings of your own music and songs, it would be great to hear from you and who knows, I might just play one of your songs on air
    So weather you’re at work, stuck in traffic, out for a run or just pottering around the kitchen. Wherever you are, whoever you are and whatever you are doing on Saturday Afternoons' I hope you can join me, I'll promise you great music and a truly local radio show to keep you company.
