Live On The Road Dog Trucking Channel on SiriusXM

"I had never seen so much tan naugahyde in all my life." That's how Dave Nemo describes his first ride in a big truck.
Back in the mid-60's, Dave and a high school buddy ran out of gas on their way from New Orleans to Texas. They didn’t stay stranded long, because the first trucker to come down the road gave them a lift. Dave didn’t know it at the time, but that driver’s kindness would shape how he would come to view the world.
In his final year as a Communications student in 1969, Dave landed a part time job at the legendary WWL 870 AM in New Orleans. After graduation, he enlisted in the Army and was assigned to the Armed Forces Korea Network (AFKN) in Seoul, South Korea.
Returning to New Orleans, Dave joined Charlie Douglas on “The Road Gang”–the first radio program aimed directly at and solely to the over-the-road professional truck driver.
Almost 45 years later, Dave continues the same tradition of service, friendship and camaraderie. Dave credits his business partner, Michael Burns, for much of the show's current success. "Working with Michael has been an incredible experience,” Nemo states.
The trucking industry has gone through massive changes and the mandate of RadioNemo reflects those changes.
Today’s professional trucker has come to depend on Dave and the crew to provide critical and vital information on industry happenings, government regulations, health and wellness, as well as engaging and interesting topical interviews with industry leaders as well as historians, health experts, authors and others.
