David Sibbald is from Edinburgh, Scotland. He studied at university in Glasgow before embarking on a radio career at Radio Clyde, working in the newsroom.
However, the attraction of teaching Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and French was too strong to resist and he went on to be a junior school head and senior teacher.
In 1985 David returned to broadcasting, initially local programmes in North Yorkshire and then on the internet.
David’s Jazz Notes show is broadcast on Just Jazz; 7pm Saturday nights.
