Dave "DG" Gillen, you can catch me on weekends. Buffalo born and raised, I have been in radio since I was in high school and have worked at nearly every major station in Buffalo in some capacity--Program Director/Assistant PD/ Music Director/ DJ. I ended up at Mix96 because I think it's the most exciting thing to happen to Buffalo radio in years. The station sounds great and I believe it will be a winner and who wouldn't want to be on a winning team? It's been 15 years since I've been on the air on a regular basis. A lot has changed since then, so becoming familiar with the technology used in radio today was a bit nerve racking... the talking part... no problem! I can babble with the best of them! The best thing about radio is that it's immediate and intimate. We have the ability to touch people's lives on a daily basis in a way that makes us a part of their lives. I always strive to have an emotional connection between myself and the audience... plus I play great music...it doesn't get any better than that! We have so much in this town. Great food, great sports (even better when they win), lots of culture in museums, architecture and theater. If you can find something to do, you have a serious problem, and oh yeah the other thing we all overlook.... Niagara Falls. I like everything from current music to classic rock, 80's new wave, EDM, current country and my specialty....disco. I've met a lot of cool people over my career. My favorite and most down to earth was Phil Collins... we talked for about a half hour before one of his shows at HSBC. Nastiest ( and I use that word to candy coat it) person I ever met was Vanessa Williams... and I didn't even ask her to autograph my copy of Penthouse! I like listening to music, enjoying appetizers and cocktails or better yet, enjoying appetizers and cocktails while listening to music!
THE BEST MIX OF THE 80s, 90s, AND TODAY
