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.

Cambodian Children Try To Learn How To Say ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ [Video]

Every language has words that are very hard to say. We have plenty right here at home in America. My wife Lisa is completely unable to say the word 'worcestershire' as in Worcestershire Sauce. It is absolutely hilarious  to listen to her try and say it when we are shopping at Schnuck's. Children especially have trouble with a lot of different words and they can be so cute trying to say them.
