Dave Cleary

A Debonair with A Passion for Globe-Trotting.

His work has seen him dip a toe in many a water across the planet; from clubs on the party island of Ibiza to the mountainous, majestic ruins of Machu Picchu in South America.
Dave has come a long way since the days of camping outside England’s radio stations in hope of being ‘picked up’; finally getting his big break in Manchester.

In the following 20-years he climbed the proverbial ladder and made a name for himself on many radio stations in many parts of the world, including Egypt and Dubai, being best known for his creations, ‘Destination Dave’ and ‘Clearify’.

Recently, Dave achieved the highest rating for listening figures on a morning show for over 4 years in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, though not before his likeable personality and charm won the Best Radio Personality for the Ahlan People’s choice Awards 2014 and 2016, coming runner up in 2013 and 2015.

Get to Know Dave:

If I could only keep one album from my collection it would be…
“I really can’t define one album as being my favourite.”

I fell in love with radio when…
“I realized that if you’re not good looking enough for TV then radio is a very good second option.”

If I won 100 Million Dirhams I would…
“I would put that money into high interest savings account and just live off the interest, and then quit my job and just travel the world nonstop until I got bored and that would probably be never.”

My motto / mantra is…
“Citizen of The World, Be happy, it annoys people who don’t like you haha.”
“Every time you get knocked down and you think it’s just impossible to do it, try one more time.”

Something you might not know about me is…
“I was invited to the White House in 2012 in Washington D.C”

I can’t live without…
“My passport, been to 95 countries, must make it 100 as soon as possible!”
