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.

Flags at Half Staff to Honor Korean War Veterans on 60th Anniversary of Armistice Day

Flags should be flying at half staff today in Indiana to honor Korean War Veterans for the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.  The good news, obviously, is that the peace between North and South Korea has lasted this long.  The bad news is that the entire conflict was never truly settled.  In addition, there are still nearly 8,000 United States soldiers that are listed as missing in action.
