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.

We Feel What We Eat and Our Moods Are the Result

Springtime is here and we're all bound to feel a little bit better because of it, but there are other things that can affect our mood and we may not realize it.  I'm not referring to how your spouse or coworkers are treating you, I'm referring to more covert things that can affect your mood, such as what you eat.

Radar Can Be Used for More Than Tracking Weather and Speeding Cars

Have you ever been pulled over while driving for speeding?  At one time in our lives, we all may have had the "pleasure" of being tracked with radar by law enforcement.  We're all aware, as well, that radar is used for tracking storms and other weather phenomena.  So how about using it for finding those great big, car and house-swallowing empty spaces called, sinkholes?  Yep.  It's the latest thing coming from (of all places) NASA.

Hot Spinach-Artichoke Dip Recipe Perfect for Basketball Watching or Other Occasions

Saturday night, Jenny prepared this hot dip that has a little different flavor to it and it's one you might enjoy.  It's perfect with crackers or tortilla chips (my preference), it's easy to make, and I especially like the melted cheese with the spinach.

March 20 is Meatout Day (No Meat) – Not For Me!

At first I was excited that today was "Meatout" Day because I thought the term meant that you are supposed to go to a restaurant and eat meat!  You know, meat - out.  Then I found out what it really meant and I got kind of depressed.  Why?  Because I'm an omnivore, that's why.  Sure, I eat lots of plants, but I also enjoy eating meats.  So could I go for a day without eating meat?
