Darwin radio presenter Pete Davies was the essence of every Territorian and I am very saddened today to hear of his passing.
Pete loved a beer, he loved fishing and as a radio commentator he was courageous enough to take on the things he thought mattered but kind enough to give people a say.
In my early days he wanted to know more about me and what I was about and it was a pleasure to be on the other side of his microphone.
If ever I went to a workshop, a city café or building site you would hear Pete Davies in the background because that’s what the locals wanted to listen to, he was very connected with his community.
He will be missed in the Territory.
I pass on my condolences to Pete’s wife Vicki, his family and his colleagues at Mix 104.9.
