KDVS' resident Beat poet from the Midwest, David is the host of Upper Realm Shrieks: Music & Words. He is well loved at the station and on the airwaves for his show's idiosyncratic style, with his theatrical air breaks and the unconventional, eclectic logic of his song progressions. He occasionally publishes poetry in KDViationS.

He's played music on numerous recordings, including "triangles, bell tree, claves, ting, sha, tambourine, industrial kitchen equipment, and toys" on Chip Handy's "P(MM)." He often comes to music events around town.

He has many interesting stories to tell from his years spent in Berkeley and Chicago.

He works at the Silo on campus.

David is super cool for sure, trounced some cancer! You should listen to his show!—StevenDaubert
