Dave Brown takes you through the night with more of your Smooth favourites. From 1am.
My first radio job was in 1982 in Stockton On Tees, and have been working in the radio world ever since. I am the only original Smooth day one-r left from when Smooth morphed from Jazz FM, and have been presenting the Nightshift for several years.
My five favourite songs:
1. Glen Campbell - 'Wichita Lineman'
2. The Beach Boys - 'God Only Knows'
3. Eagles - 'New Kid In Town'
4. Simon And Garfunkel - 'My Little Town'
5. Detroit Spinners - 'Could it be I’m Falling In Love'
The first record I bought:
Peter and Gordon's 'A World Without Love'. I bought it with my birthday money from my aunts and uncles.
My personal hero:
Glen Campbell. A brilliant singer and incredible guitarist, who was so courteous to me when I did one of my first radio interviews as a very nervous DJ, who was quaking with fear at meeting a hero. I will never forget that day.
My favourite way to relax:
As I usually only work weekends I like to get away for short breaks during the week. I love seeking out cheap flights to sunnier climes. I also love compiling playlists for my iPod to suit my moods.
