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 Discovers the Little Tykes Car Is All Grown-Up

Over the weekend, we had to go to our storage unit and discovered a Little Tykes car that both of my sons used when they were very little. You remember the red and yellow car that you powered with your feet, right? My son Evan said it was too bad he couldn't drive it like a real car as he tried to squeeze in.

Will Your Child Receive a School Lunch If You Have An Outstanding Lunch Account Balance?

That is exactly what I asked myself last week when I found out both of my sons had exhausted their lunch account money. I was made aware of this after school the day before going out of town. I immediately went to the both schools and replenished both accounts after asking if they were denied meals that day because they were already short.

Do Married Tri-Staters Take Off Their Wedding Ring Before Going Out Without Their Spouse?

The answer to the above question is yes, at least if the results of a new survey are correct. Apparently, one in five people will remove their wedding ring before going out without their spouse. Some of the reasons speak directly to the maturity level of the spouse removing his or her ring and some reasons just sound like lame excuses.

Jon Wants to Know – Am I the Only Person Who Can’t Eat Anything Without Wearing It?

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.

Most cops that I know have a soft spot for kids.That premise is the reason for the 911 Gives Hope charity here in Evansville that is made up of police officers, fire fighters and first responders.

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.
