Brian Davis

3pm-6pm Wednesday

Brian presents a nostalgic look and listen to a wide range of popular music over five decades (20s to 60s) for which GDR has become so famous.

How did you first connect with GDR?

I first encountered GDR by chance, when visiting a local shoe repair shop and hearing some beautiful jazz coming from their radio.  When I enquired what station and frequency I was told ‘Golden Days’ and since that time the pre-select on my home and car radios have been permanently set to GDR.

Why did you want to be a presenter?

I love the music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s and, having a keen interest in the history of that period, thought it would be great to be able to present on air some of the music and other sound events and doings of those times. 

What experience do you want to give your listeners?

I love bringing back nostalgic reminiscences of the above  period and hope my listeners enjoy my musical and sometimes other historical offerings.
