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.

After Watching the Trailer for ‘Now You See Me’, Dave Believes it Will Be the Coolest Movie in Years

For a couple years now, I've felt there's been a drop in the quality of high profile movies. The "Must See" summer blockbusters have been less than amazing, in my opinion. I could blame California's hard economic times, or a lack of fresh ideas if you want. Whatever the case, it appears that the drought is over thanks to 'Now You See Me'.

Dave’s Facebook Joke About Getting a Tattoo Becomes a Social Experiment

As a rule, I tend to keep my humor at a "5" on the controversy scale of 1-10 on my social network pages. I do this because, I have several people on my 'friends list' who might not be ready for the full experience of my sense of humor. Well, the other day I decided to play a little joke on my Facebook friends by announcing how excited I was to be getting my first tattoo.

Despite Pop Success, Lady Antebellum Remain Loyal to Country Music Fans

There are several artists who cross the lines between country music and pop. Taylor Swift has polished what Shania Twain forged, and The Band Perry, Hunter Hayes and others have followed. There are other musicians, such as Kelly Clarkson and Darius Rucker, who have gone from pop music to country radio success. With trio Lady Antebellum's mainstream sound and song lyrics, it would be easy for them to commit to becoming pop stars, but Lady A has made it clear that they're not leaving country.

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.

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'.
