  • What a terrible loss. He was a good radio guy and so very friendly. Condolences.

  • How sad. My condolences to his family.

  • Wow, very sorry to hear of his passing. I worked with him at KMUD for several years back in the early 2000’s. He was a great person and will truly be missed.

  • How tragic and sad. RIP.

  • He was a very sweet man. He was one of my favorite people. I worked with him for several years at KMUD. We stayed in touch after he left KMUD. I wrote a few letters of recommendation for him when he was applying for jobs in MA. I loved him. I pray for his family, his children. It makes me so sad that they have to grow up without him. SO SAD!

    So sad to read of the loss of his life. May his family and friends be comforted in their grief and thankful his body was not lost to the sea.

  • Dave was a bright, energetic, loving sole. He always impressed me with his positive attitude. He treated me, and I’d imagine all, like a truly good, loved friend. KMUD has never since seen the likes of anyone of his bright persona. Very sad news. Condolences to his family.

  • I loved Dave, such a positive guy. He invited me to help with KMUD’s Ice Coffee Booth, and I was hooked on his projects.
    The first time we met was before he actually went to work for KMUD. My friend Mark brought him to my house, and we started talking radio, and specifically “Pacifica” radio, and he said he was applying for the KMUD job, and I was all excited and gushed on and on about KMUD. He must have thought I was weirdo, but he likes weirdo’s, and I counted him a close friend from that day on.
    I’m so sad. So young…..

  • I call it the comedy channel

    Why would anybody want to work for Kdum? I call it the comedy channelstill very sad

  • How very prayers to the family

  • Dave was one of the nicest! A fellow New Englander, we gave him a copy of Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick when he moved to Cape Cod with his family. What a tragic loss! We are deeply saddened by this news.

    • Thank you for that wonderful book Mayflower, which we both read before embarking on the reverse pilgrimage to Cape Cod in 2006. Our children Sam & Rose are direct descendants of Gov. Bradford, so it was a wonderfully appropriate gesture for multiple reasons. Emma

      • Awe, Emma, I am glad that you both read that book and to think your kids are descendants of Governor Bradford is heartwarming. All our best to your family!

  • Here is the article about Dave from the Cape Cod Times:

  • Such tragic news. May he rest in peace.

  • Very sad indeed, my condolences to his children and large family. I am friends with his aunt and am shocked to hear of his passing. I worked with him at WOMR in Provincetown and was super glad to meet him – my friend’s handsome and friendly nephew newly arrived from the West Coast.
    His son would be there after school and even contributed hours to the station.
    RIP dave.

    • Yes, Sam had a show called, “Singing with Sam” during the Saturday morning kids’ rotation on WOMR — one of my fondest memories are of the two of them putting ‘OMR over the top during the pledge drive with over $3,000 in calls. Sam’s theme song was “Come in the Morning” by Moby Grape. Sam used to come in during Billboard Bob’s pledge drive shows on Thursday night and get the phones ringing. In May he finished his first year studying at Olin College of Engineering in Needham, and he is interning at Black Duck Software this summer. He and his sister Rose are grateful for the condolences and messages of love after the passing of their wonderful Dad, found on Father’s Day. Emma
