Dave's professional introduction into radio occurred in 1994 when he answered an on-air ad for employment while listening to his then-favorite radio station 101.5 KZON, The Zone, in Phoenix.
Musically, The Zone rewarded Dave with eclectic sounds long absent in the Valley since the unfortunate demise in 1987 of a true radio experience, KSTM, The Storm. His earliest influences came from listening to '70s "underground FM" radio at WXRT in Chicago. XRT's myriad of seemingly endless sonic offerings was Dave's musical retreat from the contemporary Pop tunes of the day. It was radio
Heaven. Dave recently joined the air staff at Radio Free Phoenix. Hear Dave Cooper, Monday through Friday from 4-8 p.m. & Saturday 10:00 - 2:00 p.m. (MST) on
