Dave Evitts shows
About Me: I have been with Riviera FM for about 2 and a half years, presenting, amongst other things, the recovery show. As a recovering alcoholic myself, I am in a good position to interview other people in recovery from various addictions, and the people that help them on their journey. Before volunteering at Riviera, I was a DJ in pubs and clubs around the bay for a number of years in the late 80s and early 90s.
Passions: Total cliche for a recovering addict, but I am passionate about getting the most out of my life, and volunteering at Riviera FM has given me the chance to do that. After wasting so many years, I just love waking up in the morning, knowing that I’ve got something to do that I enjoy, and I like to think that I am quite good at.
Favourite Music/Artists: I have always loved music from any era and genre. If you put my Spotify playlist on random, you will probably find Mozart following Motorhead, and the Spice Girls nestling alongside the Sex Pistols. However, at heart, I will always be an 80s boy, and have an encyclopedic knowledge of the music of that decade.
Hobbies: Outside of the radio, I love reading and writing. I still actually enjoy hand writing letters, which is quite a rarity these days. I also love watching TV and films, and listening to even more music while going out for long walks.
Favourite Things: Quite simply, family and friends. Nearly lost them once, and it’s such a wonderful feeling to have them all back in my life.
