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.

Walt Disney’s First Character Oswald The Lucky Rabbit Surfaces

I was born and raised about two miles from Disneyland in Southern California so, Disney is very much a part of my life and I have came to realize the visionary genius of Walt Disney at a very early age. Our first images of Mickey Mouse came in 1928 courtesy of the Disney directed 'Steamboat Willie' which by the way, was the first cartoon with synchronized sound, But Disney's first character was born before he started the Disney company when he worked at Universal and his name was Oswald The Lucky Rabbit.

Should Restaurant Servers Make The $7.25 Minimum Wage Excluding Tips [Poll]

My wife and I go out to dinner frequently and have a couple of favorite places and have gotten to know some of the wait staff in some of our hangouts pretty well.

It astonishes me how little servers make, in terms of hourly wage excluding tips.
