Sobel Nation Says Get Well Soon To The One & Only Dave Tripper!
And Yes…. They broke the mold when they made Dave!
Dave Tripper was a former host at Fusion Radio. He hosted a Friday Night Show entitled “Dave Tripper Live.” Dave suffered a stroke two weeks ago and was recovering. However, he recently suffered a second one.
Now, many may be asking why I am mentioning a DJ who is not on one of the Sobel Nation Radio Stations, and let me tell you why.
Dave Tripper is a friend and a good person. In this industry, especially the dance industry there is so much drama and cliques it is unreal. That is why the dance music industry is failing…. because people can’t work together. Rivalry is more important than the music. I can say that promoters, artists and DJ’s have said more than once that if people associate with Sobel Nation, then they can’t associate with them. How childish. It reminds me like it was back in the 80′s when one could not like Culture Club and Duran Duran. But that is the reality of the business. Nobody has concern about people outside of their cliques, and it isn’t about the music.
Well I am here to say, Dave Tripper, I consider you a friend. I want you to get better so I can torture you more. It doesn’t matter who you associate with or what station you are on. You are one of the good guys…. now get out of that bed and back to work!
For those in the business who know Dave Tripper and want to send him get well wishes, please mail it to Fusion Radio and they will ensure Dave gets it.
Thanks everybody and thanks Fusion Radio for remaining true to your staff, whether they continue to work there or not. A perfect example of what the business should be.
