All about Chapple

Before I got into Radio, I was a regular local boy through and through, living in North Devon all my life. I was born at the North Devon District Hospital and have lived in Braunton since I was a baby. Over the past few years, I have lived in Swimbridge, Roundswell, Barnstaple and now back in Roundswell.

I started here at the radio station about nine years ago as a tea boy, and my poor colleagues have been stuck with me ever since. Before I worked here, I used to listen to this strange bloke called Hopps, who presented the breakfast show, now I've got to work with him five days a week. Tee hee. I have presented quite a few live on stage stuff, from Bideford Quay at New Year's Eve in 2003 ish, Chivenor Fireworks Display, Barnstaple Rugby Club Fireworks Display, and I'm also the regular host to the Braunton School Fashion Show every year. I'm also one of the organisers of the Barnstaple New years Eve Celebrations and Barnstaple Carnival, which is great fun.

I'm currently the Friday Night DJ in Bar Toko on a Friday Night (9pm-3am).

I'm still a big fan of little yellow plastic ducks, for more info have a look at .
