Cooper starts driving buses

Former BBC and Hallam FM presenter Jeff Cooper is taking a crash course in learning to drive a bus, as challenged to him by a listener to a recent show on Smooth Radio.

Jeff was talking about how he had two ambitions when younger, to be a DJ and to drive a bus.

He told "One of the regular callers on my Smooth Radio show last year was a bus driver. During the many chats we had, I mentioned that when I was young. driving a bus was the other thing I always wanted to do. Eventually, he challenged me to try it.

"It normally takes several weeks but I only had two weeks available, so it was an intensive regime of 7am starts, induction, and instruction on an enormous 40-foot, 11-tonne bus. It was terrifying at first."

Jeff runs his own media company and on-line Rock station, radio2XS. He is also a radio consultant and lecturer at Bolton University and several Eastern European media centres, and a local councillor.
