Martin Shurmer

Martin presents the Saturday Breakfast Show on alternate Saturdays with Steve Davis and makes up the third element on Tuesday evenings with Phill Bird and Rosie Mabbs on the After Eight Show.
Martin was born in Cheltenham (he won’t reveal when) and when he was a tender 18 year old joined the Royal Navy where he enjoyed a glittering career, and seeing active service in the Falklands Conflict.
While serving on HMS Jupiter, sailing to far flung corners of the globe, he became a regular presenter on the ships radio station, playing both vinyl singles and LP’s, which was no easy task on a rolling ship! He also presented daily news on the ship’s TV system.
Martin joined Radio Winchcombe 10 years ago and in his show, he plays a variety of music right across the spectrum. His show is designed to help start your day with a laugh combined with uplifting music to energise and feel good!
Martin is also a prolific fund raiser! In 2021 he completed a 26 hour sponsored radio marathon. In doing so, he raised over £3,000 for Radio Winchcombe!
Being referred to as a comic genius by the comedian Alan Davis and appearing on the Tim Vine chat show have certainly been Martin’s highlights, as well as presenting on Radio Winchcombe that is!
