Dead Air Dave is a radio personality who got his start as an intern at WXRK New York in 1994. He has used the name A.B. Love on the radio in the past.

Dave's first on-air gig was at WPDH Poughkeepsie. He moved on to WBHT Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, WKRZ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, WRRV Middletown, WDBZ 'The Buzz'/WBIX 'Big 105' New York City, and Sirius Satellite Radio hitmusic channels.

He took the name "Dead Air" Dave when he was hired as a personality on WXRK New York in September 1998. He added dump button duties for The Howard Stern Show in March 2002 and was frequently used as an on-air punching bag for Howard's frustrations with the increasingly difficult FCC regulated broadcast climate and censorship.

Dave left WXRK in January 2006 when it became "Free-FM" (WFNY-FM).

Dave appeared on The Howard Stern Show in January 2006 to discuss the documentary, which Howard loved.

Although Dead Air Dave is no longer a part of The Howard Stern Show, his voice was heard on Howard TV as the voiceover announcer for "Wack Pack Bowling", a Howard TV original series, as well as "DJ Black Cloud", a Howard TV special documenting Scott the Engineer's triumphant return to party hosting.

Dave is now going by the name "Dylan"; he is the highly rated afternoon drive host (3-8PM) on WWFS (Fresh 102.7) New York City.[1][2]
