dave commenced presenting a program on 96.5 Inner FM on 10th July, 2006 with the presentation of "Midnight Lounge".
dave first discovered music in 1974 when he purchased his first vinyl record at a RRP $4.99. He has lived and breathed music of all styles ever since and as he has matured with age, so has his expansion in taste with music.
dave has enjoyed a professional career in management positions in the retail food, foodservice and now a well established profile in the real estate industry.
Prior to supporting community radio, dave worked as a professional wedding and private party master of ceremonies and DJ, entertaining in reception centers covering most impressive Melbourne metro and regional areas.
Having an appreciation for relaxation music, dave introduced our listeners to a production and presentation of a program on Monday nights which in later in years moved to Thursday nights titled "Midnight Lounge". The target audience was marketed to the 18-80 years young with a wide variety of music, a selection of golden oldies blended with the fresh sounds of ballads, soft R&B, lounge, jazz, a touch of blues, the beautiful sounds of ambient and new age music.
dave later launched another program on Saturdays titled "Retrolized" with the classic hits and forgotten tracks from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s. The program was then moved to the morning drive time on Wednesdays from 6am until 9am.
During 2012, "Midnight Lounge" program was retitled "requestswithlove" on Thursdays from 9pm – 11pm and remarketed to capture the audience whom enjoy the love songs programs and listeners are able to email a dedication song request to dave for the forthcoming program.
