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.

Would You Take Your Personal Problems or Issues to National Television?

Yesterday, I was waiting for my son to get home from school and happen to tune in to the Dr. Phil Show, which I have done a couple of times over the last couple of weeks. While I would not put Dr. Phil in the same class as Maury Povich or Jerry Springer, I am astounded at how much dysfunction people are willing to share on national TV and I'm wondering, why?

A bill being introduced in the California State Assembly, bill AB2140, could prohibit Sea World from keeping killer whales in captivity.

Sometimes Cops and Firefighters Fighting Each Other Is Not a Good Thing

Guns & Hoses 7 is this Saturday night at the Ford Center at 7pm with our local police officers and firefighters in the ring fighting each other for charity. This event has become a staple in Evansville with great fights and the winners are always our local kids. Sunday night in New York City, the NYPD and NYFD squared off in a charity hockey game that got very ugly where nobody really won and both departments look pretty bad.

Great Video Shows the Differences In How Men And Women Drive [Video]

My wife and I have very different approaches to driving and she hates my driving for reasons I cannot even begin to fathom. Lisa is absolutely convinced that if she pushes her foot down hard enough on the passenger floorboard, the car will in fact, come to a stop.

Sometimes April Fool’s Pranks Can Be Life-Changing In the Best Way Possible [Video]

Today is April 1st and that means pranks, which is why today is known as April Fool's Day. The day has a slightly different meaning for me in that, today is my wife Lisa's birthday, so pranking is not really on my radar screen. Most pranks are designed to get a big reaction, usually along the lines of embarrassment, scaring the crap out of someone, or throwing people into a complete tizzy, which are the kinds of pranks radio people prefer.

Imagine If Movies and TV Shows Were Written By Children [Video]

Have you ever really listened to your children when having a conversation with them, especially when they are telling a story? My son Evan tells stories with so much passion and really tries to paint the picture with his words, which more often than not, leaves my wife and I scratching our heads, but laughing hysterically.

Are you or someone you know afraid of the dark? My son Ethan gets very scared when the lights go out at night. He has cried out many times that he sees something moving in the dark.
