DSC combines news with a healthy dose of humor to create San Diego’s most dependably hilarious morning show. It has a long history with KGB-FM that began in 1990 when Dave Rickards moved to San Diego from Denver to team up with original co-hosts Shelly Dunn and Chainsaw for a show that was initially called The Dawn Patrol. In 1994, the show moved to its sister station KIOZ-FM and became The Dave, Shelly, and Chainsaw Show. After three years at KIOZ-FM, they made the move back to KGB-FM where they hosted morning drive for another 13 years. It was during this time with KGB-FM, that the team started referring to the show as DSC for Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw. Most recently, the show was heard on KFMB-FM where Shelly Dunn announced her retirement.

“After 28 years as the top-rated morning show in San Diego, DSC has come full circle with its return to the legendary 101.5 KGB-FM,” said Rickards. “I’ve always felt that KGB was our home, and nothing beats a happy homecoming.”

“It feels amazing to bring DSC back to where it all began – the legendary 101 KGB,” said Chainsaw. “We are thrilled to continue making you smile and laugh coffee out of your nose every morning.”

The return of The DSC Show to 101KGB’s morning drive timeslot on August 6 will mark a new programming lineup for the station.

The Bob and Coe Show will move from mornings to afternoon drive, Clint August will move from afternoon drive to host middays, and Marc Coppola will host nights.

“Bringing DSC home to KGB and reinforcing the station with heritage talent like Clint, Bob and Coe is a reflection of the power behind KGB’s legendary call letters,” said Melissa Forrest, President of iHeartMedia San Diego. “We are immensely proud to bring this lineup to San Diego’s loyal rock listeners.”
