Dave Berkeley

Dave is no stranger to rock music.

He was a roadie for a local rhythm and blues band and held a microphone by the bell of Brian Jones's saxophone when Brian performed with the band in Wallasey.

He was also the bassist in a band that never got out to perform.

"After going to a rock show I have picked up the bass again after a lot of years. This time maybe I will get to do a gig. It's one to cross off the bucket list!"

A licensed radio amateur, Dave has had contacts from as far afield as the United States and Russia and is keen to keep Morse Code alive. He can send and receive at about 12 words per minute!

An eclectic mix of hobbies means Dave also keeps koi carp, can fly gliders and has driven in the Prom Stages Rally.

An electronic repair technician by trade, Dave's claim to fame is that he worked on the lifts for Buckingham Palace and the QE2.

So make a royal appointment to tune in!
