David Prest has been involved in broadcasting for many years. He is best known as a feature and documentary maker, and has won an extraordinary three Sony Gold awards for his work in the field. For Open Air, he puts his passion for world music to the fore. His philosophy is that "it's not always pretty, and some of the music might set your teeth, and your next door neighbour's teeth on edge, but somewhere there are gems to be found."
With David Prest every week is a journey, from Cuban swing to Finnish shouting and then maybe some thumb popping Malian tunes. "We just mix it up and see what happens", promises David.
