As many of you know, the great Dave Barber died on
Saturday at the age of 60. He had a massive heart
attack and stroke while enjoying dinner with
family in Clarkston, near Detroit on June 25 and
slipped into a coma. This page is dedicated to the
many years he devoted to broadcasting and the
people he served.
Dave! He's now "behind the scenes" as the
programming director for the Capitol TV network in
Rhode Island. According to Dave, it's similar to
C-Span and it's on every cable system in the
state. He hosts a weekly show on Mondays at 8 p.m.
called "Straight From the Gavel" where he chats
with the House Speaker and Senate President. HE
even does a segment where he talks with Reps and
Senators regarding state politics.

Barber is back to pissing off (or
entertaining) Flint on WWCK 1570 9a-12n.
Dave is a VERY entertaining and left-leaning
talker who's interviewed everyone from Ron
Jeremy to even fellow Flintster Michael Moore,
whom he's known LOOOOOOOOONG before "Roger and
Me". He used to be syndicated on the Michigan
Talk Radio Network, so that's how I got to
know him. I hope someday they'll either
webcast or syndie his show to GR so everyone
