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.

This Two Minute Film Proves That Turning Off the Lights Is the Scariest Thing Ever!

Are you or someone you know afraid of the dark? My son Ethan gets very scared when the lights go out at night. He has cried out many times that he sees something moving in the dark.

This morning, Leslie and I asked you on Facebook to tell us how many pets you have. Not only did you respond to the question, most of you sent a photo along with your response, which we always appreciate. I found this video and it absolutely put me on the floor with laughter.

Happy Wife, Happy Life, Right? Wrong According To New Study

This is awesome...we've all heard the expression 'happy wife, happy life'. That notion was once the topic in a country song by Tracy Byrd, 'When Mama Ain't Happy (Ain't Nobody Happy)' back in 1998. Men have lived on this premise for centuries, but according to a new study, not only is this wrong, but it's actually the other way around!!

Westboro Baptist Church Founder Fred Phelps Dies at 84

Under normal circumstances most of us would not celebrate a death and the word 'celebrate' might not be the correct word to use here... But I don't think there will be a lot of mourning for Fred Phelps who is dead at the age of 84. Phelps is best known as the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Jon’s Men’s College Basketball Tournament Bracket

It's tournament time in college basketball with play beginning today. One of the big stories this year is Wichita State and the fact they are the nation's only undefeated team going into the tournament at 34-0.

Well, that notion is actually false. A new study says that there is a huge gap between what disgusts us and what is actually harmful.

Imagine If You Could Fly Like Superman – A GoPro Camera Brings That Dream to Life

The other day, both of my sons asked me in all seriousness, if they could ever be super heroes. I asked them exactly what kind of super hero and they both said the kind that can fly and has some kind of super suit like Ironman, which is about as close as any mortal could get to actually having super powers.
