During the event, Dave received a key to the city from Mayor Tommy Battle. The second annual Microwave Dave Day was held at the A.M. Booths Lumberyard on June 26, 2016. For over 25 years, “ Microwave” Dave Gallaher has been an important part of the music scene in Huntsville, Alabama. He continues to thrive as a recording and performing artist as a solo act, and also as front man for Microwave Dave and the Nukes. Since 1989, he has hosted highly entertaining weekly shows on two local radio stations, featuring a wide spectrum of blues styles, eras and artists. Microwave Dave has worked hard on his own time to support music education in area schools, performing on-campus concerts and sitting in with music classes to teach and inspire our youth. He is also known for donating his talents to help other local organizations realize their community-minded goals, auctioning off performances for charity, and appearing annually at numerous benefits across the Tennessee Valley. 2019 featured event co-sponsors 2019 co-hosts "nuked" supporting sponsor Musician Educator and Music Educator Honoree Awards "road runner" supporting benefactor "cadillac" supporting benefactor "flying v" event supporter
