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.

I just returned from a quick trip to California after my mother asked me to come out and help her with some things. After a couple of hours in town, we went to dinner at my favorite all-time Mexican Restaurant. I wasn't seated for two minutes before I dropped salsa on my shirt with the very first chip I ate and it happened three more times before we left.

Draft Beer Flavored Jelly Beans Sounds Like Something You Would Find at the Fall Festival

The Westside Nut Club Fall Festival is as much about the weird food concoctions as it is anything else. So many new and different gastronomical delights have been introduced over the years. Personally, I had an idea for a chocolate-dipped brain sandwich...who's with me? The Jelly Bean candy company has come up with two new head-scratching ideas.

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

Country music has come a long way over the years to be the top music format on radio today. Some people complain that today's country is much more pop than it used it to be and has lost it's country way. Others think today's country is great and can't get enough of Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Carrie Underwood and The Band Perry just to name a few.

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. Shows like the Golden Globes and the Oscars do have some relevance the same way that country fans tune into the ACM Awards and the CMA Awards.
