About Donal Mahon
As Donal says It’s been quite an amazing journey. Donal’s curiosity about radio began in his late teens, which is more than a few years ago now. His first venture into the world of wireless was CB radio, then an Amateur radio licence followed which, for Donal, was a bit like the social network of the 80s and 90s. Technology still fascinates Donal and admits to loving gadgets. He has watched radio develop from tape music formats through vinyl records, Minidisc, CD to automated touch screen control.
Donal is passionate about travelling, getting off the beaten track on his own and discovering new places because it’s so life enriching. Donal presents The Big Drive Home on GBFM, and hope you will join him for the journey.
