40 years of music and broadcasting
I am Dave vonKleist and first off, I want to thank you for visiting my website!
Here you will find a collection of my past works, a mix of music, video, commentary and opinions compiled from my career spanning over three decades.
Music, voices, humor, drama, social and political responsibility. These are the values and aspirations that have guided and directed my life. Through the years, I have been blessed with the opportunities to express myself through my music and voice in ways that I could never have dreamed of.
I must say, It’s been a wild ride the past fifty years, being a musician, performer, comedian, teacher, activist, talk-show host, public speaker, video producer and I am proud of what I have accomplished.

The “Baheebadoba” was the first tune, done in 1979 as an experiment. After being encouraged to record enough music to “Take the show on the road another 10 songs were recorded.
Unfortunately the act didn't pan out and was abandoned.
Five years later Bobby McFarrin did the exact same thing with "Don't worry, be happy".
