Welcome to first episode of the Minehead & exmoor Chronicle Podcast. This episode features an interveiw with Don Davis who is the owner of a local event photography business and a drummer of some repute.
Don was born and spent his formative years in London - shunning the opportunity to start an engineering apprentiship he followed his boyhood dream of becoming a muscian but after a serious accident this had to be put on the back burner and he took a job as a motorcycle dispatch rider.
A few years down the line he moved to West Somerset and started an event photography business and sometimes teaches drum lessons in one of the local schools and the rest as they say is history.
To say Don has had a varied and exiting life is somewhat of an understatement. Don can be reached using the links below.
