Dave started his radio career in 1966 at a station in Sebring, FL and then took over the 6 to midnight show, "Night Flight," on Lakeland’s WONN the following year. From 1978-1980 he worked in the Orlando area, programmed and pulled afternoons at Mt. Dora’s album rock Zeta 7 WORJ-FM, and then mornings after Zeta became Joy 108 WJYO.
He was on the air as J. Michael Stone on the first Top 40 FM in the U.S., the creator of WQDR-FM, the first Superstars album rock station, a programming consultant for Florida stations in Tallahassee, Miami, and Orlando, and the man behind the success of others in Georgia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas.
In 1990 Dave began a run in morning drive that lasted more than 15 years at Charleston’s soft rock Sunny 96.9 WSUY-FM.
