Longtime Nashville DJ David Hall passed away over the weekend. He was a fixture on the Music City radio scene for more than 30 years and was working at Lightning 100 as PD and afternoon drive host, entertaining listeners with his signature phrase: “David Hall rocks y’all.”

Born in 1954, the Kentucky native moved to Nashville in 1980. He had long runs at then rock stations WKDF (1980-88) and WGFX (1988-93). He had been at L100 since ’93, where he also hosted “Lightning 100 Unplugged” on Sunday mornings, and the on-air live music series “Nashville Sunday Night” at 3rd and Lindsley.

According to his co-workers at L100: “David’s steadfast professionalism and charm were hallmarks of his time at the helm of Lightning 100. He was THE face and THE voice of Nashville rock radio and Lightning 100, spanning decades at the microphone. He was a fierce advocate of many Nashville artists…He brought them to Nashville radio and the rest of the world via live broadcast and the internet every Sunday with Nashville Sunday Night.”
