Radio Free Dave is an enigma.
An enigma wrapped in a riddle, wrapped in a burrito.
Now one knows where Radio Free Dave came from.
Some have said Canada, others have said Australia. Still others have said Berwyn. (Berwyn?!)
There are even some who say he was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus, rolling down highway 41.
But regardless of where he’s from, you can find him playing music right here on TAVN.org.
But, you ask, what does he play?
The answer is simple: Whatever he wants to.
On Tuesdays he plays both kinds of music: Rock AND Roll, generally from the 70’s and 80’s.
On Fridays, he gets Under the Covers with the best in Not by the Original Artist music you will hear all week.
If you want to know more, listen on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm Central.
