DJ of the Week: Dave

Each week, we’ll be featuring a short interview with one of our DJs who recently put on a particularly great show. This week, that DJ is Dave, host of “Uptown Girl” on Thursday afternoons.

Is your radio gold plated? Do you listen to it in a bathtub full of diamonds eating croissants filled with champagne? Then this is the show for you! UPTOWN GIRL, Elegance, Opulence, Excess; every Thursday at noon on WRCT.

You can listen to Dave’s award-winning show here. And be sure to tune in Thursdays at noon.

What is the concept behind “Uptown Girl”?
I’m really into being emotionally wealthy. Listening to Uptown Girl will make you rich!

What is your favorite song that you played last week?
They’re all my favorites but Wanda Jackson – Funnel Of Love

Describe your dream date.
What a salacious question. I’m not only into rich girls and I think my dream date would involve the Monroeville Mall Sbarro’s OR Sheetz for deep fried mac&cheese. I like other stuff too.

What is your favorite food?
I like to say it’s cantaloupe but really it’s provolone sticks.

What is the best thing about Pittsburgh?
The people are kind.

Below is a photo of Disco Dave. As he said, “I didn’t really want to have a real picture of me out there on the internet (I learned that from a public service announcement) so I chose a really weird one, but I’m in it!”
