Dave Westrich

I grew up in Cincinnati, beginning my radio career at my high school radio station, WNSD. I landed in Evansville in 1980.  Throughout the 80's and early 90's, I learned the ropes of radio in several different positions on WGBF AM and WKDQ.  My radio hiatus came in spring of '92 when I attended U.S.I. to become an educator.  I acquired my B.S. and began teaching shortly thereafter.  Although I had a great time with the kids in North Spencer, I made the decision to return to the airwaves in June of 2011.  Now I'm spending the afternoons with you! I have an absolutely wonderful wife, Jenny (we met at the very first Mike Harvey sock hop in 1990),  two awesome kids, and some little critters to keep us all company.

This week while you and everyone else are celebrating our nation's independence, remember the pets!  Keep them safe and from getting too stressed out.  The noises of fireworks will especially rattle the calmest of pets.  I reserved a "safe" place for our dogs long ago in the house basement.  I have an 8' X 16' kennel built especially for the dogs where they know they are safe.

Nasty Poison Plants are Growing and Ready to Make You Miserable

Which nasty plants?  Poison Ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac are all in their summer glory, waiting to ambush you and make you miserable!  The best defense is to be able to identify them and stay away from them.  Since they are all three-leafed plants, a good general rule is, if you see leaves of three, leave them be!
