D'Arcy Waldegrave Drive
4PM - 7PM weekdays
D'Arcy Waldegrave Drives brings you interviews, opinion and a very distinctive brand of locker room humour. D'Arcy has little or no respect for position, power or themselves and believes that sport is far too important to be taken seriously.
D'Arcy has been loitering at Radio Sport since 2002 and shows no sign of moving on, despite encouragement from listeners and staff alike. He's hosted most timeslots, but finds the 4-7pm show the easiest on his health.
He has never represented NZ in any discipline and has pretty much retired from all sport due to the outrageous demands placed on him by his 'spirited' daughter.
He loves motorsport and the torment of being a Warriors and Black Caps fan. He climbed on the Breakers bandwagon when they started winning and although he calls football 'turf billiards' he loves chatting with the Phoenix lads whenever whenever they let him.
Although he has found a career and family in Auckland, where he has resided since the turn of the century, he still supports his birth province Canterbury in all domestic competitions.
