Ex Screaming Jets singer Dave Gleeson to get nationwide rock show

Southern Cross Austereo has announced ex Screaming Jets singer Dave Gleeson will host his own nationwide radio show to go out on metro stations and local works regional network for 2012 after success with his Rock of Ages show in Adelaide. The Dave Gleeson Rock Show will go out in 2012.

The announcement:

Triple M Australia Gets Better with Dave Gleeson
Ex Screaming Jets frontman and rock music guru Dave Gleeson will be heard right around the country on Triple M metro stations and Localworks regional network in 2012 for “The Dave Gleeson Rock Show”, injecting his passion for music to the airwaves and making all things rock better in a big way.

Amazing audience feedback for his midday “Rock of Ages” show in Adelaide has propelled the famous rocker to a national platform with a nightly Australian born music show. Dave is set to drill right into the heart of our most loved rock, talking shop with a plethora of his contemporaries.

“The Dave Gleeson Rock Show” will air 7-9pm in Sydney and Brisbane and 8-10pm in Adelaide and Melbourne plus on Localworks stations from 7-9pm. Dave’s “Rock of Ages” midday show will also spread nationally, with the exception of Melbourne where radio legend Lee Simon holds the mike.

Triple M rocker Dave Gleeson said, “It was as I was signing the contract I was struck by the realisation … I finally have a real job!  After a 20 year association with the M’s as an artist and on air presenter, I’m absolutely stoked to have an opportunity to put my more than two decades of seemingly pointless training to work!!   I don’t know much, but I know rock.  Bring on 2012, and Rock On”!

Southern Cross Austereo Head of Content, Craig Bruce said, “The audience feedback for Dave in his past year on Triple M Adelaide is like nothing I’ve seen before, our listeners just love him!  It was obvious that we needed to give him a national stage on the MMM/Localworks stream. When it comes to rock, Dave has lived and breathed it for the last 20 years. It’s unbelievably exciting to have him on our roster talking with such passion and credibility about the music we play”
