Siren FM lands popular BBC broadcaster


The University of Lincoln’s community radio station has unveiled former BBC Radio Two presenter Dave Bussey as its latest volunteer.


Dave will bring his vast broadcasting experience and knowledge to Siren FM this summer, benefitting students and the Lincolnshire community.


“We’re very excited about Dave joining our hugely enthusiastic and committed team,” said the station’s Managing Editor, Andrew David. “It’s wonderful news for our listeners, and for our students and community volunteers who will now have the opportunity of working with a broadcaster of his calibre. There’s a real buzz about the station.”


Dave will present programmes and also help guide Siren FM’s programme makers through the processes of creating, making and broadcasting high quality radio output.


The presenter was born in 1952 and began his working life as an electrician in the Royal Navy. He travelled the world and worked on HMS Ark Royal, among other ships, before being deployed on Polaris submarines. After leaving the services he worked on commercial radio in Scotland before moving on to BBC Radio Two where he presented the Weekend Early Show. For the last 21 years has presented a variety of shows on BBC Radio Lincolnshire.


The University of Lincoln is the first higher education institution in the country to have its own full-time community radio station. Siren FM was officially launched in October 2007 and was immediately nominated for a Times Higher Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community.


To listen to Dave’s show, tune in to Siren FM on 107.3FM, between 11am – 1pm Monday to Friday. Contact Dave via email: or call him during the show on 01522 837337.
