Dave Quigley is the breakfast announcer on Roccy FM in Young, N.S.W. He's also a very good lawn bowler and can do the splits like Jean Claude Van Damme - you know, with the chairs and everything. Dave isn't a fan of green vegetables or mushrooms, and prefers not to eat any meat that looks like it did when it was alive. Did I mention he types in CAPITALS?
