DAVE OTTO 6AM to 10AM
Ever since leaving my hometown of Minneapolis and breaking into radio at 19 in Catskill, N.Y., I have traversed the country from coast to coast creating havoc and leaving a trail of broken marriages. My first major market job was in Phoenix where I was officially given the moniker “Crazy” Dave Otto after being ruled legally insane by the court. That label stuck with me through gigs in Houston, San Diego, Cleveland, Boston and Dallas before finally being told by my PD in Denver it was too juvenile. I thought that’s what he hired me for!
I have received numerous citations over the years (mostly traffic) and the two awards that were actually related to radio were later taken back when it was discovered a bribe was involved.
I remain single because…well…if you were a woman, would you want to mess with all that baggage?
