Dave said of his move to mix94.5, “My Mum, Dad and two older brothers are all in Perth. My brother Will and his wife Ash are about to become first time parents so I’m really excited to become favourite Uncle Dave. Also, my parents don’t know I’m coming home yet, I’m planning to surprise them – so no one tell my parents please!”
