I vaguely remember Elcock... more the name and a bit of the voice than actualy snippets of the show or what his act/schtick was.  Remember Mavis too... "May and Dave", singing dem ole 60s standards, lol.

I more used to listen to the other station doh de one in de 700s (yeah back den was only two AM stations and ah grainy FM one wid Allyson Hennesy husband on it).  Ian "De Goose" Eligon was de hot dj on de other station before he ride out without telling dem anything.  Deez days he works on Wendy Williams' show http://ianthegoose.com/Home_Page.html

Dave wife was Mavis John. She was the local RB singer in the late 60/early 70s. Billy Reece  was also a DJ who use to play a lot of soul music especially on Sat. morning. He and Dave are QRC alum. There was also a white Trini called John Boos who use to do Amer. top 40 on Sat. He had own JBs disco in Maraval???

Well ya know me  :rotfl:
If I remember correctly from what my relatives said (in ah ole talk long time) he lost it while on air when he found out who she horn him with. Phil Simmons took over temporarily and eventually Dave came back but for a short time. By then there was a change the in the format of the programming, and he just disappeared (fired!!). A while after 610 action radio went off the air....not so?

Phil impressed the producers that they gave him his own program on air....the rest is his history!!

Radio personalities began or established their careers behind the microphones of Radio Guardian/Radio 610/NBS Radio. Among the many can be listed: Canadian-born Larry Harewood, Bobby Thomas, Dik Henderson, Barbara Salandy, Dave Elcock, Phil Simmons, Brenda & Kenny da Silva, Anthony Harford, Tony Dennison, Anna Seeratan, Lucy Arthur, Sharon Pitt, Dennis McComie, Ian Eligon and Peter de la Bastide.
