Davey Bee

Host, Davey Bee's Hit Song Vault

Son of Hollywood big band musician and songwriter Arch Berdahl, Davey Bee, born David Berdahl, formed his band "Davey Bee and the Sonics" in Bismarck, North Dakota, before relocating to Minot. There, he became a local radio and television personality, as well as the chief owner and operator of Davey Bee's Guitar City, later Beehive Music LTD. He managed and maintained these enterprises for 40 years until he retired.

His original singles can still be heard within a number of 1960s music collections and compilations. Davey Bee is an inductee into the North Dakota Rock County Hall of Fame, and is a seasoned musician, broadcaster, and music history expert.
