Educated at Cornwall College Duncan was born and bred in the county and started his broadcasting career over forty years ago with a brief spell at the now defunct Plymouth Sound before joining the BBC as afternoon host at Radio Cornwall, a position he held for nine years during which time he won three national Government sponsored awards for the production of programmes on road safety, and was part of the Sony Award winning team for ‘A Day at Twickenham, with rugby being close to his heart like so many Cornishmen.
In 1992 he joined Pirate FM as Senior Presenter and Head of Community Affairs, his morning programme proving to be a ratings winner with the legendary ‘Pirate Tease’ and ‘Midday Market’. Again he was on the winning trail with an NTL award for community programming and a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ at the Celtic Film & TV Awards.
In 2004 he was again on the move, back once again to the BBC to present the South West Regional Evening Programme covering Cornwall, Devon and the Channel Islands with Radio Jersey and Guernsey, and then after a short spell presenting ‘Drive-Time’ he has until recently be the weekend morning host on BBC Radio Cornwall.
Although a veteran of the broadcasting world these days Duncan is very excited about the launch of ‘The South West’s Goldmine’ it gives him the opportunity to play the ‘Music of his Life’ which is not being provided by any other radio station across Cornwall, Plymouth and West Devon and being re-united with Roger Day and Tony James with whom he launched Pirate FM.
