The Dude

The Dude,
Music has been the sound track of my life as far back as I can remember. A passion for music is something that I inherited from my parents. My first concert was sitting alongside my brother way back in 1972 when my mom and dad took us to see the Music of Neil Diamond during his “Hot August Night Tour”. This experience sparked my interest and a few years later would lead me to seeing the Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd and so many more artists over the next 40 years. My hope is that I can add to your soundtrack during The Mid Day Party weekdays from 10-2pm.
Playing your favorite songs, sharing some laughs, sprinkling in some knowledge, and adding some fun to your workdays right here on Wisconsin’s Big Cheese 107.9! Thanks for listening!
