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 This Skydiver Fall 8,000 Feet Without a Parachute — and Survive

I'm not a skydiver, and I doubt I ever will be. But people who do parachute from thousands of feet up in the sky have my respect. It's scary stuff. You hear about skydivers falling to earth without a parachute to meet with terrible injuries or death. But this 51-year old dentist not only managed to survive his freefall to earth, he walked away with no more than a few bruises! Chalk it up to clean living, I suppose.

Dave Discovers that Rocker John Mellencamp Was a Country Music Artist 3 Decades Ahead of His Time

I was recently taking a cyber-stroll down memory lane, watching some of my favorite music videos on YouTube.

This time, I discovered that rock singer John Mellencamp's 30-year old songs would make for great country music today.

Dave Can’t Wait for Season 4 of ‘The Voice’, Even With New Blood in the Coaches Chairs

Season 4 of 'The Voice' kicks off on Monday, March 25. As a fan of the first three seasons, I've been skeptical about the fact that Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are out and Usher and Shakira are in. It just seemed to me that no good could come from changing the fantastic chemistry the four coaches for the NBC singing competition had in previous seasons. Then I saw this promo, and the excitement is back!

Merle Haggard and Randy Rogers Band to Co-Headline ‘Outlaws & Legends Music Fest’ March 22 and 23 [UPDATED]
