My name is Dave Marley.
When it comes to music, it literally rules my life. I have been DJing since the early ’80s, but it wasn’t until the mid 90’s that I became interested in radio presenting. I love and respect all types of good music, right from as far back as the classic ’50s through to the indie pop ’90s. Unfortunately, I didn’t really enjoy much of what music had to offer after the ’90s ended.
I grew up listening to the radio and started collecting vinyl at the mere age of 5 years old in the early ’70s. I would save my pocket money up to buy records as often as possible, and even now, almost 50 years on, I still collect music.
Over the last 12 years, I’ve been closely involved with running and presenting on radio. I was always a big fan of the original “Pick of the Pop” presented by the late Alan “Fluff” Freeman back in the day, and I have always wanted to take a stab at doing my own vintage chart countdown show.
So, I will be doing just that right here each week on Bexhill Radio, with my Classic Chart Rundown Show. Bringing you random Top 20 Chart countdowns from the ’50s through to the ’80s I hope you can join me from time to time.
See you on the airwaves…
