Dave's radio bio almost reads like a fairy story, starting with a "long time ago", Dave's radio career goes way back to high school where he studied Communication Arts which including radio broadcasting as part of the curriculum and also did volunteer radio shows on the local university FM station aged about 13 .
Dave went to collage and some how mixed in with wild parties, girls, volunteer radio and a little smidgen of study, ended up with a couple of degrees in electrical engineering and what was once called microcomputer support engineering and some type of broadcast engineers ticket.
Dave worked in radio in both on air and or in technical jobs for many years on both commercial and government radio stations. Dave will tell you that some of his last radio jobs were in fact installing the Automation systems which would be the download fall of the Common Backyard Radio DJ in Australia .
Dave bummed around while working from radio job to radio job, doing stuff like night shift electrical fitter at a food canning factory, long distance truck driver, tour and school bus driver, collage lecturer, assistant town planner, fixer man for a recording studio and traveling electrical/truck driver/roadie/dude in a black t-shirt with a PA hire company working for some of the biggest Aussie touring bands back in the day.
Sometime back in 2000s after 25 years in and around radio Dave found himself on some type of government assisted retraining scheme for ex radio breakfast announcers which turned them into fire eating super heroes and that's been Dave's life since then.
Dave after many years is now back with his first love, radio and doing shows the old school way on internet radio. Oh by the way Dave hates country music of the Nashville type and don't mention Keith Urban to Aussie Dave, the two have a long running feud thats best not talked about.
