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.

Zero Line Sign on Folsomville Road in Warrick County – What Does It Mean?

I've driven past this sign at least twice a day for years, wondering what the heck it means.  Just by speculation and as an uneducated guess, I thought that it may be the center of the county where the northern half and southern half of Warrick County are divided.  Finally I decided that I would try to find out.  So my first move was to search the Internet, but I kept getting websites I didn't want.  My next step was to call the Warrick County Engineer's Office.

Why and When Did the Easter Bunny First Come Hopping to Easter?

Thinking about the upcoming Christian celebration of Easter with the resurrection of Jesus Christ, I began to ask myself the question, "What the heck does a rabbit have to do with Easter and why did someone think of associating the two?"  I've participated in this Easter Bunny and Easter egg thing for years and now have passed it on to my kids.  So, with the accessibility of the Internet, I decided to find out.  Here's what I found:

John James Audubon State Park’s Civil War Living History Weekend: Don’t Take Man’s Best Friend to a Civil War Reenactment!

Back in '97, Jenny and I were driving to my parents' winter home in Florida for Christmas, and along the way, we were learning some U.S. history by hitting Civil War battlefields.  We had both of our dogs, Sam and Spencer, with us, which was no problem because we could leave them in our big conversion van with the side windows open (screens).  However, at one battlefield there was to be a reenactment and we made the BIG mistake of taking the dogs with us...

Google Glass Becoming Google Contacts – What Will They Think of Next?

If you're a Google user on the Internet, then I suppose one could say that you have Google on the brain, metaphorically.  Google has impressed us all with glasses that enable a wearer to see the Internet via their framed eye wear.  Now the concept of Google eye wear takes another leap forward.  Brace yourself...Google contacts!

Should the State of Indiana Force Small School Districts to Consolidate? [Poll]

The idea of public school consolidation has been floating around for several years now and there have been some school districts that have been forced into consolidating due to financial stresses, but should the State of Indiana, or any state for that matter, force the schools of communities to consolidate even if the people of those communities don’t want consolidation?

Social Media, facebook, Can Make You Feel “Down” and Depress Your Mood

Honestly, I’m not a fan of social media and never have been.  I’m not interested in, nor do I want to know every person’s little whim, thought, rant or philosophical view.  It’s only because my job requires me to be involved in certain social media that I am.  Now there’s news that affirms my natural instincts about social media – a study’s results show that spending time on facebook depresses our moods.

“Stella Awards” Demonstrate Proof of Dysfunction in America

I received an e-mail from an acquaintance of mine who also happens to be a WJLT listener.  Within this e-mail were stories of people who were awarded monetary compensation from the American judicial system.  Before I write any more, I would like to begin by saying/writing that I honestly don't know if these stories are true.  However if they are, our judicial system has become as dysfunctional as our American society has.
