Not only a great pro-sounding radio DJ, but a very keen anorak too. I first met Dave (real name Dave Salmon) in the 1970s when he worked on the docks in East Hull. He later moved to Liverpool where he wokred for the Inland Revenue, and as a singer in pubs by night. Dave taught himself a variety of musical instruments, and was particularly a virtuoso on the keyboards and rythmn guitar. He was very popular in pubs and clubs and but for family reasons I reckon he could have had a good career performing live; he was never short of gigs.
After moving back to Hull (just two miles from me) he assembled his own impressive studio and spent his spare time scouring boot fairs etc for old radios and tape recorders which he would painstakingly restore - he usually had a couple of 50s trannies in various stages of reconstruction. Visitors were treated to RNI and Britain Radio, coming from a 1940s Bush, it sound a testament to his technical skills.
When I last saw Dave just a few weeks ago he gave no suggestion of being ill, so it must have been a mercifully quick passing; I shall certainly miss his coffee and biccies, his excellent radio shows and the many hours we spent discussing radio. Safe joruney Dave.
