Afternoons With Eric Cornish

Eric Cornish – Afternoon’s 3-7pm brought to you by Hawg N Sauce BBQ and Grill

Eric loves driving the folks of the Tri-State home every weekday on 99.5 WKDQ! Eric was born and raised in Louisville, KY. He attended Western Kentucky University and is a Hilltopper through and through. While there, he studied radio broadcasting and helped launch WKU’s first 24-hour, student-run radio station. After college, Eric spent a couple more years in Bowling Green at WBVR, but made his first big splash at WFGE in Murray, KY, hosting the morning show for 3 years. Eric and his wife, Lori, now live in Henderson. They had their first child, a beautiful baby girl named LeAnn Ray in February of 2011, and added number 2, Bradley Edward in April of 2012.  Eric and Lori also have a spoiled dog name Eva (from the Vanderburgh Co. Humane Society!)  Eric has two major guilty pleasures…Karaoke and Pro Wrestling…so if you want to pick the mic up or lay the smack down, he’s in.

Join Eric Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:00 for the Country Whuppin’.

Join Eric for Dashboard DJ Monday-Friday at 5pm.

Schedule

M-F 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

New Movie ’50 To 1′ About Longshot Kentucky Derby Winner To Premiere This Weekend – Interview With Jim Wilson And Christian Kane [LISTEN]

Being as close to Louisville as we are in the Tri-State, the Kentucky Derby is something many of us take time to catch each first Saturday in May.  I grew up in Louisville, so I always make plans to at least watch the race.  In 2009, a major long shot, Mine That Bird took the garland of roses, and that underdog story has prompted a new film, '50 to 1' produced by Oscar winner, Jim Wilson.  I had a chance to talk to Wilson and one of the stars of the movie, Christian Kane.

Ten Forgotten Country Duos [VIDEOS]

Lately the duos have significantly stepped their game up in country music.  For years the duo category at country award shows was just a formality for twosomes like the Judds, Brooks and Dunn, and Sugarland to take home the prize while the others lingered in obscurity.  While Florida Georgia Line dominates the scene today, acts like Thompson Square, Swon Brothers, and Dan + Shay keep them on their toes.  Let me take you back through the years for some duos you may have forgotten about.
