S03 E14 - Dave Kelly

Has there ever been a more iconic evening show than Dave Kelly’s epoch-defining broadcast on Galaxy?

If you were to write the recipe for the perfect evening show, you’d use all the ingredients that made Dave’s show so perfect. Daft features – Tick. Dicking about – Tick. Pushing the boundaries of what you get away with – Tick. Bangers – Tick.

But what made this young fella from Northampton become the Don of Dusk?

Luckily you’ve found the podcast to answer that very question.

Galaxy wasn’t the only notable station on his CV. He had a good run at Capital and even turned his hand at doing breakfast on Radio City. He spills the beans on how all this came to pass, and in the case of City, the unfortunate ending.

He also reveals he might be one of the biggest radio geeks out there (don’t get him started on split jingles); how he cost Galaxy tens of thousands of pounds due to a couple of significant cock-ups; and how he’s not the only Dave Kelly in radio.

Dave now lives in the Cayman Islands and does shows for stations all over the world. Sucks to be Dave… But prepare to play the world’s smallest violin when plays the sympathy card regarding the price of frozen produce in the Caribbean.
