David Pearson

It is with great sadness we said goodbye to David Pearson, fondly known as Pero, who sadly passed away. David presented on a Friday from 1pm and shared a great variety of the music he loved from the 70s to the present day. David was always into his music from a young age, for some time played the drums in a pipe-band, traveled the UK and Ireland and of course in Midlothian as a club DJ he will be locally remembered, particularly from his zen days.

Longtime fellow DJs Steven Horsburgh and Denis Campbell said we will greatly miss our great pal Pero, especially his enthusiasm at the old school and 80s nights and his contribution to Black Diamond.

Black Diamond FM Chairman, Bob Miller said: "Davy had tremendous musical knowledge of many genres and his passing leaves a huge hole in the Black Diamond family.

Thank you for all the kind messages we have received on the Facebook page.

Our thoughts are with his family at this time."
