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.

Rare African Lizard Looks Amazingly Like the Amazing Spider-Man

If I didn't know any better, I would say this is a clever photoshop trick to make this lizard look like Spider-Man.  This is not a trick and the lizard is real - but not easy to find. This particular lizard is Mwanza Flat-Headed Agama and is primarily found in Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya.
