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.

Artist Creates A New Door That is Mesmerizing and Completely Awesome – I Want One

The Bar Is About to Be Raised in the Debate to Raise the Minimum Wage

Raising the minimum wage has been a very hot topic over the last twelve months and there is about to be a big push in Washington to get it done by 2016. Those who oppose raising the minimum wage say it will take away jobs and all but kill small business owners. Those in favor say it is long overdue and will put a dent in the poverty crisis in this country.

Jon’s Thought For Today – Why My Wife Lisa Inspires Me Every Single Day

This is going to be a tough one for so many reasons, so I have decided to focus on the two main reasons for this piece....two little baby boys named Hunter and Logan. Today is the first day of our annual St. Jude Country Cares Radiothon and as much as the work they do at St.Jude touches my heart, I cannot even begin to try and understand what the parents of terminally ill children go through, but unfortunately, my wife Lisa can.

Jon’s Random Thoughts – An Injured Index Finger Creates Problems We Don’t Think About

Yesterday I was cutting up a block of frozen chocolate for my boys to share. I was attempting a particular angle when all of a sudden, the knife went right across my right index finger and up to the nail...huge gash. The thing that was so weird is the fact I was using an ordinary butter knife and in that instant, I realized how much we depend on our fingers for everything we do.
