Dave Haslam is an author and DJ. Originally from Moseley, Birmingham, and educated at King Edward's School, Birmingham, where the rumours were that Toyah Willcox was his girlfriend. Having moved to Manchester in 1980, he DJ'd over 450 times at the legendary Haçienda nightclub in Manchester, UK including Thursday's Temperance club night in the late 1980s. In the 1990s he also hosted the weekly night Yellow at the Boardwalk nightclub in Manchester.

More recently he has written a book about the Manchester music scene, called Manchester, England, a book about superstar DJs called Adventures on the Wheels of Steel, and Not Abba; the Real Story of the 1970s. He currently holds an infrequent guest-only night, 'Sweet Sensation' at various venues in Manchester. He also presents 'The Weekender' on Xfm Manchester and has a weekly residency at South nightclub (Manchester) every Friday night. The night is called 'Another Planet' and Dave has regular guest DJs like Terry Hall, Chips With Everything DJs, Ben Livingstone and more.
