KIIS-FM’s late night and weekend personality, Dave Styles, started his road to radio in the 7th grade, where he used to record his own weekly countdown using his home stereo and a microphone, then sold copies of the tapes to kids at school. (Isn’t that illegal?) We hope to find some of those tapes to embarrass the crap out of him. At age 13 he began working as a mobile DJ for parties, weddings, and special events. Before landing at KIIS-FM, Dave made stops at KHTR in Pullman, WA, and KKRZ in Portland, OR, before returning to Seattle, where he did weekends at KBKS.
Born in Seattle, Washington to British parents, Dave made a move across the pond at age 6, and grew up in Cantril Farm, in the West Derby district of Liverpool, England. He has 2 sisters (Lisa and Karen), and 1 brother (Steve) living in Seattle, and 1 sister (Susan) living in Florida, but most of his cousins, aunts, and uncles reside in Northwest England and Wales.
Dave Styles is on KIIS-FM weeknights from 1am to 5am, right before Ryan Seacrest. He knows that some people working the late-night graveyard-shift rely on him to keep them awake and entertained, so he tries to keep you informed and in-the-loop-with info on your favorite artists and celebs, as well as "goings-on" around SoCal.
Along from the listeners in the Los Angeles area, Dave frequently gets calls and emails from people all over the world such as London, Australia, and Germany, who listen online at www.kiisfm.com
. While it’s the middle of the night here in LA, its daytime in other countries, and the people who listen online are very vocal of their appreciation for station. "It’s amazing how many people listen to KIIS-FM."
Aside from radio, Dave also works in his home-studio producing background music for T.V. shows, such as 'Miami Ink'
, 'Celebrity Fit Club'
, 'E! True Hollywood Story of Britney'
, 'Confessions Of A Teen Idol'
, and 'Tough Love'
which is currently airing on VH1.
He also hopes to stop sucking when he goes on auditions, so that he can be on tv sometime soon.
When he's not working, you can find him chillin at home, wandering around town, or on the soccer field playing goalkeeper for Angel City FC, a soccer team in the LA Municipal League, as well as the teams 7's squad in the Santa Monica 7 on 7 League, which plays Saturday mornings. He is also the center fielder for the Loose Cannons Softball team, which plays Monday nights in Burbank.
