Dave Pearce is coming to Radio 2 to present a dance music show. Each edition of the new show, to air for an hour on Thursday nights, will focus on a different era of dance music and clubbing culture, from disco and funk to rave and the rise of Ibiza, with classic tracks and bits celebrating DJs of old. Listeners will also be encouraged to participate with some clubbing nostalgia.

Dangerous Dave told reporters: “I’m delighted to be able to share my passion for dance music with listeners to Radio 2. With nearly all the original heavyweight DJs over 50 now I guess dance music has finally come of age! It’s time to bring back some of those great records that we all miss”.

He added: “I’ve been working in dance since playing disco on land-based pirate radio in the late 70s and have continued going to clubs, DJing and enjoying the music ever since. I’m really looking forward to hearing listener’s anecdotes and record suggestions. People often say to me whatever happened to all those great records, the good news is that they are under my bed and in my loft!”

The new show starts on 14 Apr.
