DAVE RAVEN RiP

Yesterday we lost a great man.
A lovely guy; supportive, generous, kind and funny.

Dave Raven was a blues broadcaster; a huge supporter of, and ambassador for, the blues scene.

To quote Paul Long – “Dave will be missed by all of his fellow broadcasters, not only for his show, but for his work with the UK Independent Blues Broadcasters Association and UK Blues Federation, and also by his listeners around the world and musicians in the blues family. We all owe him a debt of gratitude”.

With love to all who Dave has left behind. He will be sorely missed.

Here’s a photo of the festival’s creative director, Jason Elliott having fun with Dave. That’s how we’ll remember Dave – having fun and smiling (a lot).

Here’s a link to a beautifully written newsletter from the UK Blues Federation, which you may like to read:
