David ‘Kid’ Jensen

Born 4 July 1950




Canadian born David has one of the most recognisable voices in radio, with over 40 years in the industry, and has worked across some of the UK’s biggest radio stations. He acquired the nickname 'Kid' at the time when he was the youngest radio presenter in Europe and it has stayed with him ever since.

His European career took off when he joined Radio Luxembourg, before moving to the UK at the dawn of the commercial radio era. A stint at BBC Radio 1 was followed by more than a decade at Capital Radio, where he became the host of the Nescafe Network Chart Show. He moved onto London’s Heart 106.2 before returning to the Capital Radio Group, this time as the mid-morning presenter on its Gold network.

David is now part of the national Smooth Radio line-up, presenting its weekday afternoon show from 1-4pm and hosting a Double Top 20 show each Sunday from 6-8pm.
