Dave Wheaton

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The New Kyle Park Music Video, ‘Fit for the King’ is a Great Tribute to George Strait

Kyle Park, like many other Texas country artists, owes a debt of gratitude to George Strait for paving the path to success and inspiring several of today's stars. While he jokingly told me in a recent interview that he would marry George if he could, Kyle found a very special - and more fitting - way to honor Strait with his latest single and video, 'Fit for the King'.

iPhone and Android Repair Stores Offer a Great, Possibly Less Expensive Option to Buying a New Phone

If you own a smart phone, you've probably wondered at some point how you ever got by without one. But let's face it, smart phones can be both a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because you have so many different capabilities at your fingertips. A curse, because most of us (myself included) grow to be very reliant on our smart phones. So, it should come as no surprise that when I damaged my iPhone recently, I had a feeling of helplessness similar to being bedridden with the flu.

Dave Discovers Nina Conti, a Hilarious Comic Who is Safe to Watch With Kids and Coworkers

I caught myself spending too much time on Facebook again recently, and came across a video one of my friends posted. I don't usually mess around with video clips over a minute long, but for some reason I clicked this one. And it turned out to be worth the extra time.

My Love of Twizzlers Surfaces as My Townsquare Media Coworkers Eagerly Point Out

I was walking through the hallway of the Townsquare Media studios, when I noticed an odd-looking, handwritten note posted on the door of the on-air studio I use on a daily basis. This message was not so much instructional as it was a commentary on just how many Twizzlers I'm capable of consuming in a day

Reckless Kelly ‘She Likes Money, He Likes Love’ – Song Review

Reckless Kelly have been one of the highlights of the Texas music scene for over 15 years, and it seems like every song that RK releases to Texas radio can be penciled in to the Top 5 of the charts. And with good reason; this is one of the coolest, most talented bands you're going to come across. Their latest single, 'She Likes Money, He Likes Love' from the album 'Good Luck & True Love' shows off both of these attributes.

Dave Relives His Childhood by Taking His Kids Through the Car Wash

A fond memory I have of my childhood is when my mom would surprise me and my younger brother, Greg, with a trip through the car wash. It was always such a pleasant, wonderful surprise when she pulled our family station wagon into the full service wash and asked for the "hot wax". What followed was 2-3 minutes of childhood bliss. I'm happy to report that some things never change, and my kids appreciate a trip through the car wash as much as I did.

Listen to Kristen Kelly’s Live Acoustic Performance Before She Became a Country Music Star

With the success of her song 'Ex Old Man', and the fact that her follow-up, 'He Loves to Make Me Cry' is moving up the country charts, it's hard to argue against the fact that Kristen Kelly is a rising star in the country music world. But she's not an overnight success by any means. Without hard work, perseverance and a lot of talent, the singer with small town, East Texas roots wouldn't be where she is today. And I have proof.

We've come to expect certain things when you listen to a new Jason Boland and the Stragglers CD over the past 15-plus years. Expect new music to stay true to the dancehall country music that made them Texas/Red Dirt music icons. Expect great lyrics, and fantastic musical arrangements that are incredibly easy to listen to. And, of course, you can expect to enjoy one of the best vocalists in country music. With the release of their seventh studio album, 'Dark & Dirty Mile', it's good to know that some things never change.

5 Things That I Believe Will Be Gone In 20 Years

When I was born, society hadn't even dreamed about how important computers would be in our everyday lives. But in less than twenty years, they have become something that most of us can't live without. At the same time, there are several things that have disappeared from existence in that same time frame. For instance, VHS tapes. How about toys in cereal boxes? And when is the last time you made a collect call? These are just a few examples. This makes me think and wonder what part of our everyday lives will no longer be around in 20 years. I've compiled a list of my Top 5. Let me know if you disagree, or if I missed any.

John Oates Enlists Taylor Swift Producer, Vince Gill for New Album

For his newest project, 'Good Road to Follow,' Oates has called on country legend Vince Gill to produce a song, as well as Nathan Chapman, well known for working with Taylor Swift.
