"The Pearce Posse", Dave Pearce, DJ on GLR who ran the "Fresh Start To The Week" show featuring Roger Johnson and KCJ.  Dave worked on the BBC documentary "Rapping" part of the "Lowdown" series, which was a great snapshot of the scene at the time.


From his website http://davepearce.co.uk


Dave started DJing on a popular south London pirate radio station while still at school.  By 16 he was running his own station.  By 17 he was DJing in Bombay, India, to an international jetset Bollywood crowd.

Dave joined BBC Radio London and created and presented the BBC’s first hip hop show and a weekly dance show.  His pioneering work in hip hop led him to, amongst other things, be featured on Public Enemy’s critically acclaimed album ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back’.

He then hosted a nightly dance show on GLR, hooked up with pirate radio station KISS FM, and joined the campaign for a dance station in London.  KISS FM then became the first legal dance station in the UK and Dave hosted a daily drivetime show.  He went on to host the Breakfast Show (The Dangerous Breakfast) and gained the attention of BBC Radio 1.

He then joined BBC Radio 1, initially hosting the Early Breakfast Show, and landing all Chris Evan’s Breakfast Show stand-ins.  He went on to host a series of different shows on BBC Radio 1 including the Recovery Session (The Breakfast Show for Ravers), The Weekend Breakfast Show, Drivetime, Late Drive, and Dance Anthems, which ran for 11 years.
