Well, he's been around since the 70's as Dave. But it's now Sir Dave to you. 

Dave Dobbyn was recently knighted and to celebrate the occasion NZ on Screen has created an online library of his working life. Gabe McDonnell is a playwright, actor, TV and fiction writer and many other things. She writes for NZ on Screen and Audioculture and has had Dave Dobbyn on her mind for some years now. She joins Jesse to look back across 40 years of 'The Dob"! 

Check out Gabe's piece charting Dave Dobbyn's journey from shy rocker to knighthood here
