Jon Prell

I have been at WKDQ for 13 years and have loved every minute of it. My career started in Southern California and I arrived in Evansville in 1994. I have three children that keep me very busy and the rare opportunity to go out and not have a six foot mouse serving your table is a rare and welcome treat. I love motorcycles and classic country and even host the WKDQ Country Classics show every Saturday from 6-10am. If I can I can ever play a song for you, let me know at wkdq.com.

Jon Highlights Two Lost Hits That Are as Pure Country as Country Gets From Vern Gosdin and Mark Chesnutt

Jon Prell Answers the Question – Whatever Happened to Larry Boone?

A few days back, a guy called me and asked about a song he hadn't heard in years, which is something I get quite frequently. He said the song had to with giving candy to a stranger. I immediately remembered the song as Larry Boone's Don't Give Candy to a Stranger, which was Boone's highest charting record back in 1988.

Jon’s Obsession of the Day – Why Do We Care So Much About Celebrities?

This morning, Leslie and I gave a few highlights from last night's Golden Globes broadcast. If you listen to us at all, you know that I simply do not understand society's obsession with celebrities.

It happened in the resort restaurant area and it was pretty obvious what was going on, especially when she said no and stormed out of the restaurant. My son Evan asked why she was so mad, to which we had no answer.

Is the Supposed Velveeta Shortage Real or Just Good Business?

Leslie and I were talking this morning about a potential Velveeta cheese shortage that is being reported. This time of year is prime for Velveeta with the holidays wrapping up and the Super Bowl less than a month away. Oh my gosh, can you imagine a Super Bowl party without Velveeta? Oh, the humanity.
