Dave Elder is the Program Director and Afternoon Drive personality (3-7pm weekdays) on 97.7 WCTY. One of the longest afternoon drive shows in Connecticut.
I’ve been with WCTY since June of 1993!
I have also worked on WICH, WNLC, WKNL and before working for Hall Communications, Dave was the Program Director at WSUB in Groton and worked part time on WQGN.
This is where I am from! Born in New London and have lived all over Eastern Connecticut, I went to Norwich Regional Technical School and the CT School of Broadcasting.
I love Country music. A lot of the new artists like Thomas Rhett and Old Dominion. But, I am a huge George Strait and Dierks Bentley fan and you’ll see me at a lot of the concerts! I also like some pop music… Bruno Mars and Pink and also like standards from Sinatra and Michael Buble!
People never knew that I once sold shoes before I worked in radio. This is much better, I don’t have to deal with anyone’s feet! Dave is a huge New York Yankees fan, cheers on the Washington Redskins and loves wine! Cheers! J
Dave is married and has a son and is actively involved with the Chamber of Commerce and Cornerstone Church, Little League as well as, MADD, TVCCA and other non-profit organizations.
