I'm David Brown and a founder member of Radio Hillingdon. I presented programmes
from 1971 to 1983 and was also part of the station's
Engineering Team from 1971 until my daughter was born in
1986. 24 years later I returned to make a special 40th
Anniversary programme which explained how Radio
Hillingdon started and showed some of the hurdles we
had to jump to keep the station on the air.
I enjoyed making this special programme and it got me
hooked again, so I am currently presenting three late night programmes each week. One on Saturday and Sunday from 11pm
and one on Wednesday from 10pm to midnight.
My first Saturday hour long late show is Dave’s Dance Music Mix
it is non-stop dance music with the occasional interruption by me to say what I have played, in case you want to request the song again on
our request show! I play chart topping dance music from the last 50 years. If you like Disco music and the fast Strictly Come Dancing type of music then listen in, you won't be disappointed.
My second Sunday programme is called Dave’s Mellow Mix
where I play relaxing non stop smooth mellow music.
The Wednesday night Late Show is two hours long starting at 10pm and has a mixture of general music with my Featured Artist Double Play and Mellow Three in a Row.
I've been running the Radio Hillingdon Early Years website for many years and took over this main Radio Hillingdon site in February 2011 when I designed and wrote the software to generate the Electronic Programme Guide and the ON NOW and ON NEXT automated Picture and Description system
to show who is broadcasting now and who will be on next. I updated our website in March 2018 to give it a more modern look and so it was easier to view on small screen devices.
If you like Dance, Smooth and General pop music and you find yourself in
Hillingdon Hospital, join me on the bedside radio system or
if you are at home, listen in on our internet streaming
service. Don’t forget Saturdays and Sundays from 11pm and Wednesday night from 10pm.
