Not so fast, Mr Fannnig!

How we have all grown used to Dave Fanning over the years.

The quick-talking DJ can fire out a sentence or three while most of us are still on our first syllable.

Talking bang for buck for licence-payers, Dave delivers handsomely in the word-count department.

Not so for US viewers. The Diary was amused to come upon a recent documentary of Bono on the Biography Channel.

It featured, of course, U2's favourite DJ Dave.

But hang on . . . while it looked like our good pal, this didn't sound like our man Dave.

It turns out that the US programme, in an effort to make Dave understandable to viewers stateside, had both slowed down his voice and played it in a different pitch.

The good news is that Dave sounding the way we love him can be heard on 2fm each evening between 7pm and 9pm.
