Effjerby was born at a very young age, but was lured into radio rather early in life, where he started as so many do in his local hospital radio station, serving mostly as a presenter and a technical type. Since then, he has worked in three other FM radio stations in the same vein except for the last one, where he worked for 8 years but didn’t present any shows until the latter half as he had no interest. In his professional life he was an IT engineer but for the sake of his sanity (and his hairline), he retired from the profession some years ago. This did not stop him using his skills in local radio, rather they had to poke him with pointed sticks and give him fresh tea to calm him down. In his personal life he makes use of the other side of his brain by indulging in the creation of poetry, art, music and other stuff which restored his hairline.

Started buying music in the late 70’s when Dave first saw the Sex Pistols on TV, and he’s been doing it ever since. Started playing in bands mid 80’s & recorded a few albums & toured extensively.
