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.

Is This Mountain Dew Ad the Most Racist Commercial Ever?

I came across this story from ABC News. It's about a television commercial for Mountain Dew, and it's being called by critics as 'the most racist commercial ever'. Before I watched the video, my first thought was whoever gave it such a title must be overreacting. I'm certain that Pepsico (the makers of Mountain Dew) has people who look closely at the commercials they put on the air, and would pull the plug on such an ad.

In a fundraiser coming up May 18th at Trent ISD, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Dr. Hannah Kinney at Boston Children's Hospital. Dr. Kinney's research is helping lead the way in finding a reason and a cure for SIDS.

Iron Man 3 Has No Chance of Living Up to Its Hype, According to Dave

My son Nathan has been excited about Iron Man 3 for weeks. He's been watching the previous two movies over and over again on DVD in preparation. He stops everything he's doing to closely study the trailer for the new superhero movie. Needless to say, he's going to see the Robert Downey, Jr. flick on opening weekend. But, with all the hype and all the exposure this movie is getting, will it live up to its billing? I'd doubt it.

The Tejas Brothers Improve on an Already Great Sound With ‘Live A Little More’ – CD Review

It's been a joy following the Tejas Brothers for the past few years. All along, the band has been up to the challenge of carrying the tradition of Tejano/Texas country music. With such a distinct sound that so clearly honors their influences (Texas Tornados and their solo offshoots, along with classic country artists), Dave Perez and the guys are still able to be fresh, current and continue to evolve as a band. The Tejas Brothers' evolution has taken the next step with the release of 'Live A Little More'.

Abilene Restaurants With Food-Eating Challenges

I went to The Flipping Egg one morning to have breakfast with my son, and noticed there was a framed picture on the wall of a customer holding an empty plate. After a little investigating, I found out this guy is the lone champion of 'The 10 Pancake Challenge'. The breakfast diner has been offering a food-eating challenge for a while, yet that man stands as the lone conqueror. And they're not the only Abilene restaurant to offer to put customers to the test.
