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.

Watch a Bumblebee Give a High Five, Because You Will Never See it Happen Again

I watched 'Bee Movie' with my son, who was seven at the time. He loved it. However, the film, about bees talking and living among humans, demanding human-like rights and doing human things was lost on me. I didn't buy into bees acting like people. I was a non-Bee-liever.

But how ridiculous is this story plot? New video evidence shows that 'Bee Movie' may not be such a far-fetched idea.

Two Tons of Steel, ‘Unraveled’ is a Music-Lover’s Album – CD Review

I have to admit, I wasn't familiar with Two Tons of Steel until the band released 'Not That Lucky' a few years back. But from first listen, I was hooked. I loved the fact that there was a band that could be far off the beaten path, yet sound so cool and polished and professional. Their new CD, 'Unraveled', features more of that quirky coolness that we've come to expect from Two Tons, and more.

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'.

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.
