David Perry – Weekend Announcer | Host Of The Studio

The newest member of the team is David Perry. David got his start in this business in 1981 after his father threw him out when he was 16 and told him to not come back without a job. Turns out the local radio station was hiring and he got the bug.
Over the next 15 years, Dave lent his voice to radio stations across Canada before trying something “different”. The radio bug never left…it was just put on the back burner. David was able to convince Greg Hetherington to give him a token weekend show (Greg did it just to shut him up) to get his ya ya’s out. His knowledge of classic and contemporary rock from the late 70’s thru early 90’s is extensive.
