Truly Local Radio for North Devon - Broadcasting from Studios in Barnstaple - Online, on DAB and on 106.1 & 107.8 FM

Matt Webber

Hi all, I'm Matt. North Devon born and bred, and a country boy too, living just on the Western edge of the Exmoor National Park in the sleepy little village of Challacombe. I'm married to Sally, and have two stepdaughters Sam and Charlotte. We run our family business from home, doing minibus travel and Private hire, airport travel, school contracts, and the dreaded late stuff on Saturday nights!!

I became interested in radio as a child, listening to Late Night Sou' West on Radio Devon with Chris Langmore and Howard James! Then just before I left Pilton a leaflet came in the post saying that a new radio station for North Devon was on the way, - Lantern FM... brilliant!! and the rest we all know, with the fairly recent change to Heart FM and then soon afterwards that sad Thursday when the Journal told us that Barnstaple studios were being axed.. grrrrr. Enter Ian Starling and the gang, and a lot of excitement and who-ha about another North Devon station, The Voice, - and then Ian let me become involved as a presenter, which to start with is probably more like being in Concorde's cockpit rather than behind the wheel of a minibus!

I enjoy doing Exmoor tours for a holiday company, showing visitors all there is to see over Exmoor, - yes it is work , but I enjoy it enough for it to be a hobby too. Its a great place to live! Favourite TV would have to be Only Fools & Horses... definately! And on that note I'll say Bonjour for now!

Breakfast with Hopps. 

All the usual stuff from your local breakfast show.  Weather, travel updates and news. We'll take a look at the local stories hitting the headlines. Quiz of the week could be anything from Anagramalebrity, Here come the drums, The Name Game or whatever tickles my fancy this week ... sometimes there's a prize too ... but more often than not, the reward is getting your name on the clever clogs list.

Guests at 0915 and 1015 and tell me your Top 3 tunes. Could be from one era or genre. Maybe 3 songs that have real meaning in your life or reming you of a specific occasion. Whatever your Top 3 is, let me know. Either call me during the show 01271 323 010 or better still email . We could be playing them at 1030.

... too much to mention ... you'll just have to listen!
